    If it's been a long time since your last back up, that will add to the time required.

    Had the same problem with my 3g update. I gave up after the backup progress bar hadn't moved at all in an hour. I did a restore as new, and the whole thing took about 10 minutes after that. Of course I had to reinstall apps and everything after that, but sometimes it's good to clean out the cobwebs and get a fresh start.
