    ...have you updated to 5.1.1 yet? I'm still on the fence. Too much stress was caused by this ordeal. Got a replacement from Apple, but I'm too scared to even update to 5.0.1.

    Hello from a fellow BC member. I updated to 5.1.1 without a snag. There's another thread on here where people report their success. I think 5.1.1 is turning out to be a safe update. 5.1 was an anomaly.

    Updated my bricked watch when I got it back to 5.1.1 with no problems.

    I didn't get bricked, thanks to those who reported the issue here. I did however update 2 watches successfully to 5.1.1. No issues at all.

    Thank you so much, everyone.
    Ok. I'll do it. Right now.

    It went well. At first, I was scared because it got stuck at the dash wheel for a bit, but then it went actually super fast. Thank you for the encouragement. :)
