raj, 19 Aug 2014My 720 has now consumed 6 hours!!!! Its keep on rebooting 3 time... moreIt took a lot of time to overcome my situation. After Win 8.1 update, my Lumia 720 was restarting again and again indefinitely. All I could see was a NOKIA logo which will come on and off. For initial one hour I thought it is some normal process in wake of the update. But it went on and on.

Lastly, I downloaded Nokia Software Recovery tool on my lappy. It was not an easy task either as the new version took almost 2 hours to download. After than I connected my phone to the lappy as per the instructions given on screen. The tool will then wipe out everything present on phone and start the OS download from zero. It requires a lot of patience as the download speed I got was a max of 117 kbps and it kept varying between 50 - 117 kbps. After hours of wait, finally I was able to my Lumia up and functioning with Win 8.1.

Also, in between tool will stop detecting your phone. Then you will have to disconnect and wait until the battery drains out (there was no other option). Once phone shuts down of its own, connect it again to the tool, in the process phone will take power from lappy and get restarted.

Took almost 20 hours amid research and download and installation, but finally my phone is working.

Update took 4 hours with Lumia 520. Remember to update both Cyan AND WP8.1.
NOTE! Before updating: clean your phone memory, e.g. buy SD-card and move stuff there, this will make update faster.

Cyan+WP8.1 is much better than previous versions. Still some fairly important things needed:
1) Calendar alarm auto repeat (if I am not present or don't wake up).
2) Quick call from People list with just pressing e.g. phone icon.
3) Changing default search from Bing to Google.
4) How to read local txt- or html-files with some e-book-reader (remember book page, easy to read background etc)?
5) User profiles for meeting/quiet mode etc. I think Cortana offers something like this as "Quiet mode", but Cortana is not available here in Finland.
