    Hi, i have downloaded, and tried to install 8.1 update 4 times. All of those tries ended with a failure. I got to the spinning cogs screen, and after 10 min or so, it says that it can't update my phone (error 80070008). Any help? Please?

    Use Wifi connection to download and connect the phone to a charger :) The update can take up to 30 minutes

    Yes I've tried all of those.
    Last 3 of the 4 tries I did were on WiFi and on charger the whole time. The package was downloaded without error. The error show up at the spinning cog screen.

    Are there any other user who experience this as well?

    Yea, I've been searching. The closest thing I found was about an user that had the same error on his Lumia 630 (I have Lumia 620 btw). But no solution was given. Is this problem really rare? It seems like there are only some people who get this error.

    I am going to try for the fifth time. I have the package downloaded, and waiting to be installed. Do I need connection to install the update? It is only needed when downloading the update, right?

    Okay, I am back. The same error came up yet again. I am really clueless right now.

    Maybe you must keep on WP8 until the "real" update. Read about all the disappointed people.

    Well, I might just do that. But, still, I'd really like to know as to why is this happening. I've read that some people have got the update working on their 620s.

    Do you have Lumia Amber or Black? OS version?
