Microsoft makes fix available for those Microsoft Surface RT slates bricked by RT 8.1 update
On Monday, Microsoft made available a recovery image that will help bring those bricked Surface tablets back to life. This will require a USB drive and those who have used it say that it does the trick. Meanwhile, Microsoft is still hard at work, trying to get a safe and reliable version of Windows RT 8.1 ready to be sent out to Surface RT owners.

Looks like I seriously lucked out on dodging this 'flaw' as neither my Surface RT/64, Lenovo 11/RT or the wife's Surface RT/64 had any trouble with the RT 8.1 update.
They're All Running Fantastically.

"...less than 1 out of every 1,000 customers...have been impacted... " Wrong! How would they know this if the total number of the customers is less than 1,000. :)

It also happened to my laptop, could not start the operating system and the screen remained frozen and restarted every time.
Boot into Safe mode and from there restore the previous session and now works perfect
