  4. Hi, I just got this OTA via OPO and once the updates were installed the lock screen came on. I entered my PW and clicked the submit button. For a second the screen unlocked and then the phone crashed. It won’t come back on now and I have waited for about ten minutes, nothing is happening and no response to holding or pressing power button. Any suggestions? This was the first upgrade to CM13.
