    Mine downloaded everything and is now stuck on the phone update screen with an Update status of "preparing to install 100%" and has been that was for abt 5 min now. I'm not supposed to reboot myself manually am I?

    UPDATE: it just started rebooting. So I guess it does stick that way for 5 minutes. So far this is the "chunky"-est slowest update of any phone I've owned

    No! At least, don't be so hasty. Mine sat on 100% for a little bit before it asked me to begin the actual update process.

    It would be based on the amount of data / apps on your phone. The more information on your phone, the longer it would take.

    I wish it was that simple. It's constantly going up and down every few seconds. Any way to roll back?

    Ya seems like u have a bad unit. a really bad unit.

    Agreed. I used the hear the voice of my dead grandma. Now I don't. Now there's a tiny voice telling me to buy Nokia accessories though. Weird

    In all seriousness, yes, just use that sticky thread about flashing to fix a bricked phone. worked for me when mine was bricked after reset.
