v40 update bricked Quest 2 headset

The v40 update started yesterday, after it was downloaded my headset rebooted to the blue meta logo and got stuck there, I left it overnight to see if it would complete, no luck so tried a hard restart this morning by holding down the power button, the headset turned off and then turned itself back on straight away, the update logo (chip with a down arrow and a green progress bar) appeared, this appeared to complete before the headset looped back to the blue meta logo and again stuck there.

Not really fair to brick headsets with an unavoidable update now is it?
