:-(
i am officially fed-up with this update crap!!!!!

after a couple of days of contemplating (after my last posts), i tried again to update this idiot firmware and, to my big surprise, my laptop doesnt even detect my sgs anymore
i tried installing kies on another computer - kies detects the phone, but gets stuck at 1% of reading the contacts

how can samsung be so freaking stupid, to make this firmware update only for computer pro's (and w/ nerves of steel and b@lls the size of water melons)?!

i dont think of myself as a computer genius, but i am not an idiot either

IMO, updating the firmware should be made with a click of a button, 100% safe, NOT through 8763 procedures, that will void the warranty and have a chance of bricking your phone

i still think sgs is a good piece of hardware, but useless because of a bunch of morons that write the codes for it

i am missing my old (but so much more reliable) nokia e71

Good evening. Rumunia, Serbian is colling,

My way
To download Froyo 2.2.1:
- unroot the phone,
- factory reset the phone (three buttons),
- a program called "uninstal Kies" uninstall Kies,
- load only Kies 1.5.3.10103_102_1, other versions do not work with kies registry patcher,
- start Kies,
- only now connect the phone to a komp,
- kies load registry patcher v.1.7.0.0,
- kies registry patcher should show which version you are using Kies,
- under "file"and choose "load backup" and choose the option from XEU,
- option XEU check the folder that you kies registry patcher offer
- do not touch anything else in patcher,
- the question of kies registry patcher answer "yes"
- return to Kies, and down right click option to update,
- follow the instructions and Kies,
- in comp shut down all antivirus.
- komp required in framework 3.5,
- the battery in the phone is full,
- leave the comp, phone, and Kies do their job,
- Upon completion of first place with three buttons do again the "factory reset"
- you should see: I9000XXJPY PDA, PHONE: I9000XXJPY, CSC: I9000XAJPY, build info: 2010.12,
- restart comp, delete the uninstal kies version you used to install the new version of today 2.0.0.11014_49_2,
- component will now show that this is a new USB device and leave the work to be completed.

Ok this did make me chuckle but, there are women who have successfully upgraded to Froyo as well.  Sticking out tongue

I am sorry I miss threads, I try to aim for the threads with zero Replies, as I believe the community is self supporting and when I help someone I believe they can in turn help others and it's true. It's just that my inbox is so full and I try to help everyone I can but I can do so much alone.

Anyway the Problem with Kies is that it's an MTP application something Android doesn't support natively, Samsung went out of their way to make Kies so people can use a Computer to Backup and upgrade and other things that Kies does. (I used it initially but after seeing the headache it gives me I gave up on Kies).

Before I attempt to explain a possible method to get Kies to bow down, what do you need Kies for? There are a lot of alternative methods replace Kies. Since all other Android Phones don't support MTP they use these alternative methods.

If it is to update the phone do tell.

I have seen your nick, but I help so many, I have been known to answer questions two or three times to the same people in 2 or 3 different threads. Lol.

Peace.

What Happens is since this a very Unstable driver from what it seems.

It is real mess of how Kies operates and since it's closed source I have no clue of the inner workings.

But what I find very successful is to try a different computer.

If that is not an option, you could format and Reinstall Windows, but that is a big pain as well.

The Next Best thing (this is the only way Kies Works for me) is emulating Windows with more control on before connect.

This Method has been illustrated over here.

What is different is that you will use Kies 2.0 instead.

If you need me to write it all out let me know or if you don't understand something specific tell me.

Peace.

No Don't use that Kies. Use the New one.

Unless you are still on Eclairs.

btw I thought Kies Air was for U.S. Phones Only.

u mean 2.0? already tried that on my wifey's laptop (w7 too)
no success :-(
and no, i am on froyo, i bought my sgs in dec 2010 and it came with froyo on it

to be perfectly honest, kies air worked very well, the only minus is that it sees only contacts, messages, pictures and vids, not all content of the internal/external SD
i uninstalled kies air because i thought that it had smth to do with kies not detecting my phone

That is ok, your phone is up to date.

if you want a newer version you will have to flash.

nope, my phone shows 2.2 versn, not 2.2.1

when 2.2.1 first became available a few weeks back and i had kies 1.5.3 installed, it showed new update available for firmware and new update available for kies

unfortunately, i made the wrong choice of updating kies first  Crying

after that, kies 2.0 couldnt detect my sgs
