Default Find 7a won't boot after Update

I just got my Find 7a today and it said there is an OTA availible. I downloaded and flased it and now I am stuck in a boot loop. I tried clearing Cache and Data in Oppo's Recovery but still no success - no boot. Always the black Oppo logo. What can I do to get my phone working again?

[EDIT]
Ok - I found 2 solutions.
1) A link to the stock ColorOS 1.2 was posted on Oppos forum (haven't tried this one yet) http://www.oppoforums.com/threads/ho...find-7a.12660/
2) I flashed the Beta for ColorOS 2. It works, but is clearly still in beta. Download also on Oppo forum http://www.oppoforums.com/threads/fi...0i-beta.11926/

I feel for ya! I guess I'm happy now that the OTA won't flash on my device. I'm new to Oppo, so I'm not sure what you could do besides pushing the entire factory image via adb and flashing in stock recovery. But, I'm not sure where to get the entire image... How about color OS 2.0 beta?

Did you try factory reset? You are likely aware that all your data will be gone after that.

I finally tried the Color OS 2 beta and it worked. The system boots now but since it is a beta it still needs some work... It's not perfect but at least better than a phone in bootloop.

If you go to the Oppo Forums under the ColorOS section there is a thread called "Download ColorOS." Right now the only two downloads are the ones the OP posted but I thought I'd throw that out there in case they add an updated ColorOS 2.0.
