    It will take about a half hour to complete the update. Mine took all of 25 minutes when I finally got it to work.
    Did it say "upgrade failed"? If it didn't then it was still upgrading. The noises you hear like the beeping and I mean annoying beeping, is normal.

    I had a problem trying to upgrade using my android device. I ended up using my Ipad to get it done.

    Just let it go.

    It does take awhile. It took 25 minutes for me. It sat at 37% for about 10 minutes and then went pretty quick to get the reat

    It is the video.Maybe your video editing software can only do 720-1080p.

    Thanks still going to hold off for a bit. As long as it burst in to flames at night I may be ok with that.

    Completely normal... Mine got stuck on 40 and began beeping. It then proceeded to update normally
