URGENT - update nuked my site.

I’m running Magento and just went to check for updated module via Connection Manager.  As there was an update to the magento_Mobile module I allowed it to run the update.  It has thrown an exception and I can no longer show the page or get into admin.

As I left the Connection Manager window open (from previous bad experiences!) I tried to uninstall the module, seeing as there is no way to roll back.  This doesn’t resolve the error.  I really hope someone can help!!!

Turns out it was developer mode turned on for some stupid reason.  FIX: Comment out the following in .htaccess
