    My Nokia Lumia 520 was running on WP 8.1 Developer Preview.
    I downloaded the update and installation of GDR 1 Started, it reached the spinning gears.
    But the gears are spinning for over 2 hours now.
    Please help me out if possible...

    No problemo. They should make that tip a sticky really... some guy had the spinning cogs for 6 hours before they found that trick accidentally.

    It was my Lumia 720 stuck on spinning gears screen for long time with Developer Update.
    Popping out SD card solved issue. Installation is completed.
