Default Samsung 4.0 - Endless reboot cycle / no sound through headphones

I just got my Samsung 4.0 (a French import from France) and upon finally being able to connect it to Kies, it prompted me to install a firmware update.

I duly accepted, and the firmware was downloaded succesfully.
However, my player is now stuck in an endless reboot cycle.

I have tried uninstalling the apps that I downloaded, turned off wireless, taken out the battery and all sorts, but it just keeps on freezing, before rebooting (starting with the Samsung welcome screen). This in effect renders my device as a brick.

It's driving me mad. My patience has worn VERY thin with Samsung.
If anyone has any advice they can offer (besides taking a hammer to the device), I'd be very grateful.

On a side-note, when I plug my headphones in the socket, the sound (for the rare times it starts to play music, then reboot), STILL comes out the speakers as opposed to the headphones.

If you think I need to 'factory reset', please tell me how, 'cos I looked for that option and couldn't see it anywhere. Presumably this would wipe all the music I put onto it, too?


Many, many thanks in advance.
