    This is just great. I was out of my phone all last week because the update was stuck on the spinning cogs. Now my wife kicked off her update on your L521 and it also is stuck on the spinning cogs.

    Anyone else get this? Guess I'll have to send it in for repairs like I did mine.

    Sometimes it does take a while , but, should be no longer than 10 to 15 minutes on that screen.

    Try Performing a Hard Reset
    Volume UP, Down, Power, Down

    And if still nothing You can manually flash the update on your phone, if you are willing to try it.

    See this thread you will need access to PC to be able to download Nokia Care Suite and reflash the phone.

    Just tried everything just like I did with my L810 and nothing worked. It will be shipped to Nokia's repair center.

    Where can I download Nokia Care Suite? My brother's phone has the cogs as well and I'd like to follow Corepc's instructions. I see NCS on Softpedia, but it's from 2012.

    I had t send my wife's phone to Nokia since I bought it from WalMart a few months ago. Either way, it's a free repair and cant complain about that. Just had to hear a little b**ching from the wife because she's going to out of a phone for a week. This is when I zone out.
