How long to wait for OS update reboot

How long to wait for OS update reboot

After excitedly going through and making sure my new (used) P12 module is in ship shape, I foolishly downloaded the 1.4.1 update and sent it to the unit with Bome Send SX. As it was installing the screen went blank, and it has now been sitting with a blank screen for about an hour after the Sysex finished sending. All the voice LED's are lit and occasionally flickering, LFO 1 and 2 are lit, LFOs 3 and 4 are flashing. Some of the buttons are flashing momentarily about every ten seconds.

I'm wary of turning it off given that the instructions warn to wait for it to reboot itself in the event the screen goes blank and that turning it off mid install could brick it. Any ideas? I'm having a hard time believing it's gonna do anything but sit there unless I reboot it. Is it normal for the system install to take over an hour after it's done receiving the Sysex?

Dumbest part of this is that it already had 1.4.0 installed. D'oh.

I gave up and rebooted it. Not bricked and not updated. Phew.
