Bimmecode failed, car bricked and wont start

Can someone help? 2018 G30 540, built in Sept 2017, was coding video in motion, after sending the code, all of sudden, the entire car gone crazy, 4-5 warning messages showing on the iDrive, wiper going up and down, engine won't start.

Wait for the app to clear the codes.. its part of the process.. If not then just go onto the back and re-code from the back up.

Thanks. I tried restoring to the backup, same result, car is completely dead. I disconnect the battery and will let the car sit overnight and see how will it go (while I donít expect it would make any difference)

Thank you, yes, already in progress via the app with logs forwarded (while car is still dead). Plan to get it towed in a few days if not resolved.

Thank you so much, I will contact you shortly if not getting timely response from Bimmercode (they stop responding but probably due to weekend).
