After the battery pull how drained was the battery? You still should be able to do battery pulls.

Wow. I haven't seen that before. Again, I don't think that battery pulls or the upgraded OS should do that. Try charging it up to 100% again and pulling the battery. If it still happens you could try another battery.

Ok its fixed.

The problem was that coincidentally the battery terminals were oxidated/dirty. Little light rubbing of a pencil eraser and everthings back to normal.

That's the first I've heard of it too. Glad to know a fix just in case.
