You didn’t reboot it right in the middle of it defragging the file system after the update, did you?

Could your 12V battery be dead? Any way you can try getting a jumpstart unit on it?

can NOT open anything!! doors, windows, trunk, frunk, etc
can not start...I am not going to try and force open trunk..I have a 45 yo son...get the pix?
Also no app works I have 2 the original app from Tesla & the one that starts the car etc remotely from phone NOTHING WORKS

The good news is you don't need to break in - there's actually a safety release on the Model X's frunk to get in there. Here's a good video to watch about it:

I would make a pretty good bet that your 12 volt battery is dead. Get that jumped and you'll be back on the road. you might ask your 45-year-old son to go ahead and look at YouTube and figure out how to do that. :)
