I did it at home with no problems. Just make sure all wires are secure and all animals (if any) are away from the PC (personal story with that).
Let the phone take as long as it needs to install the update and restart itself to initiate the boot sequence. It's well worth it.
Well thats scarey!!! I may just take it to the store because im not sure I want to risk losing connection/power and destroy my phone lol
