    yea.... that killed it right there. Hopefully it is not bricked

    Try putting the device into “recovery mode”. If the phone is useless

    Hold down both HOME and SLEEP/WAKE buttons for 8 seconds, then simply releasing the SLEEP/WAKE button while still holding the HOME button for another 8 seconds.

    iTunes should recognize it and you can restore or do whatever it says you can do to get things going.

    See if you can put it in DFU mode if it makes a difference.

    Power outage interrupted my update and now mine is stuck a little over halfway on the apple boot screen. No clue what to do. Already tried DFU mode with no luck.
