how exactly did you perform the upgrade ? you don't have to program the boot 
code ! there are several "partitions" on the flash and you need to program 
only two of them.

the other solution is to program the whole flash. (but with another file!) it 
looks like you did the second solution with the files for the first solution.

bring it back to your dealer and play a dumb user ("It just stopped working. I 
didn't do anything to it.") I don't think they will be investigating the 
cause of failure.
