A USB thumbdrive with a working version of the OS, like 4.41 for example, is fixing the problem for those that were capable enough to upgrade their hard drive and are capable enough to roll back their OS.

Yeah, I'm a little confused why people are calling this "bricking" (no offense to Creston, I saw people using the same term on other sites last night to describe it). To me, a bricked console is one that cannot be fixed by the end user, and has to be sent in for service.

Granted, this doesn't make the issue any more acceptable - it still shouldn't be happening. But I'd much rather be able to roll back via USB than have to ship it off.


Fair enough, I probably use the term too liberally. To me a console that doesn't boot after an update is bricked, but I guess it's reasonably easy to fix. Still, for most users that easy to fix thing is a no-go.
