...and it did NOT brick. Just letting people know that were afraid of having the opposite happen.

Thank you. I was worried about this.

This happened right after my friend was reading an article about systems already bricking, so we were both scared as hell.

Mine even froze and made loud piercing noises. Had to unplug it to make it restart. Afterwards booted up fine and finished downloading update.

It only bricks if your POWER goes out, not the internet

I don't get this. Nothing horrible will happen if you lose connection when downloading. It's the install that will mess you up and only if your console shuts off.

I saw a lot of people in topics claiming that they lost their internet connection and that their console was bricked. I just wanted to alert that this didn't happen to mine (believe me, I see the folly in thinking that it would).

mine has crapped out like twelve times, so far it seems okay; I even played some Super Mario U for an hour and a half after I started it and came back to finish it up... Still disconnecting, but I hope it's cool...

just download the update again. if you lose power while INSTALLING the update, then it may brick.
