I have tried to perform a software update on my 9360, but it has be frozen in the same place for more than 24 hours.
It won't let me stop the update, but nor will it move on at all. What are my options? Can I reset the phone somehow?

yes, pull the battery and let it boot.
You may have to force the detection of the BlackBerry smartphone using Application Loader to do the software reload if it gets stuck again.
