N95 dead after firmware update

Hi
Just have the same problem - have tried to update software in my n95 - have been using Nokia Software Updater software - and everything went well until ~90% of process - then phone rebooted - and on computer screen i found a message thet phone is not responding, and i should check connection and retry. But since then phone never came back to live - it vibrate when im pressing power on - and i can see the numeric keyboard backlight on.
Went to one of the repairing shops nearby but they told me they need to request some kind of new flash specific for my phone and it will take about two weeks to organize it.
Im thinking about going wit it to nokia care center - and see what they say. any other advice that you can give me ?
Thanks in from.

Hi I just had the exact same problem however I did read a few articles on Nokia.com and it said to download the phones drivers again take the battery out put it back in again and you get the white screen of death, lol yes you know that screen anyway it took doing this process with the battery and retrying and wow it worked my phone was dead but just as sudden as it died during firmware update it did eventually reinstall and now my phone is running as if nothing happened, seriously just persevere and you will succeed, I thought that it was all BS and that I was gonna end up paying heaps to get it fixed but it does work just keep repeating steps in this link I will provide for you, and you will hit pay dirt, I hope this helps you as much as it helped me, good luck and here is the link where I read the info:http://discussions.europe.nokia.com/discussions/board/message?board.id=hardware&message.id=8949
