    By definition "bricked" means it can't be fixed.
    If it is fixable it's just broken, temporarily unusable due to software fault etc. So, What is this "steam vr and oculus firmware update" you're referring to? I don't think there is any update combined from Oculus and Steam. Also firmware update are usually required after an Oculus desk top software update.

    Please say exactly what the update(s) was/were and the version numbers. Was it a firmware update for the sensor or the headset? (if it was a firmware update).

    Dear Oculus, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it", please.

    If you give no info, no one can help you.
    BTW Software update and firmware are 2 completely different things. I doubt very much that you did a firmware update.

    The same exact thing happened to me today. As soon as steam vr did an update one of my oculus rift sensors stopped working, and it has a dim white light
