    It bricked?

    That's not good at all.

    I hope you get everything sorted.

    I've been running 8.1 RTM on my RT for a few weeks, the first time that I checked for updates today, the only update was a small Defender update. After that, there were some updates for 8.1. (Defender, flash player, and Security update for IE 11). A reboot was required. That was all.


    Sounds like those 29 updates were probably the last wave for 8.0 RT before the 8.1 update.

    All I see is 15mb for IE security updates and Defender. Is there something else?

    I had about 20 updates, a bunch for Office and a bunch of security stuff on top of the firmware update.

    No problems here. 30 updates in total for me including an optional update for RT. All new updates as I had checked in the morning and only had a defender update.

    It must have been the firmware. It's the only update that can brick a computer.

    First of all, which version of Windows RT are you upgrading from? Secondly, when was the last update you applied before this?
