Default Help, Phone tried to update, now doesn't restart

Please Login to Remove!

So last week had this icon that appeared on the front screen of my bold, telling me to update to a more recent version .297 or something. So after ignoring and not wanting to mess with my phone, I choose to download it. After it restarts, it continues to say "linking java" and then shuts down, and then repeats the process.

I went to the AT&T store, and although I have insurance, they said there was water damage to the battery, and they can't give me a new one. Although I think i have had it in my pants in the shower before, this was 100% from the software/update download. I would have to pay $125, the same as if I had lost it, which I obviously don't want to do since its not my fault.

Anyone else have this recent update? have a similar problem?

If you're absolutely sure that this is because you attempted an OS upgrade, then might I suggest that you bypass the morons at your carrier and follow the instructions within this post provided to get your phone going again. OS: 9000 Bold 4.6.0.517/4.6.0.297 (ATT Official Release)

I dont think the OP meant while IN the shower, but the clothes were in the same ROOM as the shower.
