    Welcome to the forums.
    Try pulling the battery for a few minutes. Put it back and try restarting the phone.

    Can you boot into download mode? Power, volume down and home?

    Do you have enough space on the internal memory for the download? It seems strange that it would always be stopping at 26%.

    Are you using Wi-Fi or Mobile data for the download?

    You could try rebooting into Recovery mode (Home + Volume Up + Power) and clearing the system cache - that should wipe out the previous downloads so that you can start fresh.
