    Update: a few hours later and the phone kept trying to update until it died. I plugged it back in and it went right back to updating. It seems like my phone is ruined since it won't do anything except keep rebooting into the update which never finishes.
    I was afraid of that

    Try Using Nokia Software Update Recovery

    It didn't work. Because of where in the boot process the update takes control, the Nokia app never sees that a phone was plugged in.

    So, here's what I did. I bought another one. It's 1/2 the price it was when I bought it last year, and it's the best $70 phone out there. I didn't see anyone else have this problem, so I view it as a fluke.

    I wasn't expecting much out of this update, but it fixed a lot of my problems! for one thing, the camera is now a lot faster. and the other big change that helped me was the multitasking is faster and more responsive. now, it's much easier to switch between office, camcard, etc. without twiddling my thumbs waiting.

    and some apps seem more stable (they don't dump me back to the start screen as often as they used to).

    Spinning gears is very easy to fix with a Laptop and Nokia Care Suite for Retail. Lots of good info on multiple threads in the Forums on this website.

    Updated my daughters phone last night and I get a text this morning that she now has duplicate songs and some songs are now missing like she had before when she first got the phone. This is ridiculous that Microsoft has not fixed this and updating to Black caused this to come back. She wants to dump Windows phone now and I don't blame her.

    Spent a good 5 hours last night trying to get rid of the duplicate pics and songs that appeared after updating the 521 to Black. I give up...tried formatting the SD card in the phone, on a computer and it made no difference. I guess I will have to do a hard reset.

    Turn off Xbox Music, that should stop the duplicate from appearing. But you will still have to go through manually and remove the duplicates. My suggestion is plugging phone into PC and remove them via windows explorer..
