I recently installed the latest version of Kies (1.5.3 or something) in order to upgrade my Galaxy S, but when ever I click the upgrade button it shows me this screen which tells me to backup all data and what not, but after clicking "Upgrade" it simply does nothing. Nothing at all. No matter wether I check the box where it asks about backing up contacts.I have firmware version 2.1 at the moment and I believe the latest is 2.2

Samsung Galaxy S :: Kies Upgrade Not Done - Recover Software

Oct 21, 2010

One more time the Samsung kies has fail to update my galaxy s. I have done the below mentioned procedure. Firstly, make sure to backup all the important data present on your device. Download Samsung Kies version 1.5.1.10074_45 or something that is not the latest, you will need to uninstall the latest then install this one.

1. Connect your phone and open Samsung Kies and let you phone be detected as usual.
2. Keep Kies open, minimize it and run regedit in windows.
3. Locate HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareSamsungKiesDeviceDB
4. You should see some folders, named 1,2,3 etc in that folder, look for the one that mentions your current firmware, IMEI number, etc.
5. Once you find the correct folder (only one folder mentions this information), you need to modify 3 strings by simply double-clicking on them.
6. Locate the following 3 entries and change their value to the ones shown below. (You may first like to backup their value data to a notepad file).

SoftwareRevision = I9000XXJF3/I9000SWC/I9000XXJF3/I9000XXJF3
ProductCode = GT-I9000HKDXEE
HIDSWVER = I9000XXJF3/I9000SWC/I9000XXJF3/I9000XXJF3
Now close the Registry editor and do a Refresh. So, while Kies is minimized and still open and connected to your phone, you have changed these 3 strings.

7. Click on "Firmware Upgrade" button in Kies and you should now see Kies saying there is one upgrade for JP6. Now wait and let the upgrade process to complete.
Note: "The above procedure is said to be working perfectly but try it at your own risk. Also, flashing will result in loosing the root if you were rooted."

After doing all this thing my kies has given message that upgrade is not done please remove the cable from your phone and recover software.

Samsung Galaxy S :: Unable To Connect To PC Through Kies / Computer

Nov 23, 2010

When I try to connect my Galaxy to the computer either through Kies or by just plugging it in the computer does not recognize my device. The following message comes up on my phone regardless of which connection method I choose. "PC connection available only on idle screen. Close running applications". The only thing I have running that I know of is the "weather widget" which is part of beautiful widgets. Can I get a list of applications running on my phone somehow? Is there a way to turn the weather widget off? I am assumming that that is the problem. Anyone else out there have similar difficulties hooking up to Kiev or just your PC with the same kind of message?

Samsung Galaxy S :: New Kies Computer Not Showing Phone In Kies Mode

Nov 26, 2010

Having waited for FROYO for a while now I was really pleased that Kies had an update which I think includes the Froyo update. I downloaded the update but my phone is not showing as connected in Kies mode. If I attach the phone in mass storage mode it is recognised!Having only just switched from iPhone to Android I cannot believe how shyte Samsung/T-Mobile have been with the software for such a great piece of hardware.I have tried rebooting laptop and phone as well as reinstalling Kies.

Samsung Captivate :: Kies Not Connecting

Nov 16, 2010

I have had kies on my computer for about two months. My phone connected fine and I could save messages and contacts. But now after this kies update I just sits there and says "Connecting the device... Please wait" This is rather annoying. I've tried disconnecting and reconnecting, persists to do the same thing. I tried clicking some buttons. It says something about you can't do blah blahh when there is a firmware update. I didn't hit the firmware update button so it shouldn't be downloading and update.

Samsung Captivate :: Kies / MTP Application Crashing - Fix It?

Jul 21, 2010

Day 2, now everytime I try and connect the MTP Application screen pops up, then crashes, then pops up again, then crashes, and continues to do so until I unplug. Has anyone else experienced this and fixed it?

Changing the USB setting to anything else, such as Mass Storage, works fine.

I've tried on Windows 7 and WinXP with the same result. Drivers are already on the computer from the first time.

Samsung Galaxy S :: Possible Fix For Kies

Jul 26, 2010

I could not get it to connect at all today, but it had worked in the past, so I tried various things, including turning Kaspersky AV off - but it didn't seem to help.I tired a few other things and I think the solution may be to turn wifi off.

Samsung Captivate :: Custom Launchers Don't Work With MTP / Kies!?

Jul 23, 2010

I decided to try Kies again. I set it up and hard set my USB connection on the phone to Samsung Kies. I plugged in my phone and didn't even get the notification from Windows that a USB device was plugged in.I unplugged the phone and plugged it back in, this time watching the phone. A very quick message popped up on the phone that said"PC connection available only in idle screen.Close running applications."I checked TasKiller and there wasn't anything running.I scratched my head for a minute and then on a hunch used Home Switcher to change my default and running home screen to TouchWiz. I plugged/unplugged my phone and it worked! It said "MTP application", gave the USB symbol and connected.I then switched my home screen/Launcher to LauncherPro and tried it. It failed like ADW did with the same error! I'm not sure what gives there, but it's something you may want to investigate if you're having trouble using an MTP application like Samsung Kies.

Samsung Captivate :: Automatic Outlook Synchronization And Kies

Aug 7, 2010

My question mainly is, is there a way to make the phone's calendar and contacts synchronize with outlook automatically? For example, everytime I connect the phone it does it automatically. My previous phone was a Samsung i8910 with symbian OS and everytime I have my laptop on, the phone synchronizes everything with outlook over bluetooth. I was really hoping for a way to get this feature somehow on my Captivate.

Samsung Captivate :: Outlook Contacts - Can't Get Kies To Work

Aug 15, 2010

For those still struggling with this, or those just getting this phone and encountering issues, I have a solution for you (that I have not seen posted thus far, and with 90% less black magic - just average, everyday Office blood, sweat, and tears).

If you are just trying to get your contacts, and you can't get Kies to work, try this:

Go to your contacts in Outlook, then selects the contacts you want (ctrl+click if you just want certain ones, shift+click to mass selects, etc), then right click and go to "send full contact" and then "in internet format", and then send the email to yourself. Go to the email, save the contacts you wanted someplace you can find them.

After this, make sure your Captivate is either in "Mass Storage" connect mode or in "ask me" mode. Plug your phone in with the USB and open up the phone in explorer. In another window go to where you saved all those .vcf files and then copy them all to your phone.

Unplug your phone when you are done, then go to your contacts app. Open the menu->more->import/export->import from sd card->phone-> and then whichever option you want (I'd go with all).

Spent 5+ hours trying all the different suggestions (and every different permutation of settings and procedures I could derive from the various programs and dark rituals suggested) before I finally figured this one out. Hope this helps others - it preserved my contacts, pictures I had assigned them, phone numbers, birthdays, etc, without manually entering them for a day or two, or being forced to sync them with gmail (preventing me from giving them custom ringtones...) and saving me any more headaches with 3rd party programs or Kies or any other ridiculous witchcraft.

I created a torrent on Demonoid if your d/l speeds are killing ya on the other options. If you don't have an account you have 2 weeks from today to find it. I believe that is the non-user limit. If you need an invite, PM me and ask nicely and I may provide one.

Samsung Galaxy S :: Language And Kies

Jul 16, 2010

I have just bought a Galaxy S on Ebay, and I was expecting to have the traditional chinese installed instead of the simplified... I am wondering if it's possible to install an additional language onto the current os? or if there's a way to do this?

and as well, I am having problem syncing KIES with the phone... W7 64 Bit Ultimate always tells me that it fails to install the drivers.. and nothing happns afterward.. I have read the previous emails that Samsung is currently having issues with KIES with Galaxy S.. is it true? I guess we will have to wait for samsung to come out with a new version of it? I want to upgarde the firmware but now the KIES is not working, I guess the only way is to wait...

Samsung Galaxy S :: Kies Won't Recognize

Oct 9, 2010

Don't see quite this issue:
-Windows XP Pro fully patched to SP3 running on Toshiba Satellite P104.
-Loaded and installed Kies, direct DL from Samsung Website, supposed to be latest version as at 10/10/2010.
-When I connect the phone, I have it set to prompt for type of connection. I select Kies, and it immediately shows "MTP Application, screen flashes, shows "initializing" with 4 dots running. Screen then flashes, and it says the same thing over and over.
-Windows Device Manager shows MTP Application supposedly working and installed under "Portable Devices"
-Kies shows "connecting to device" forever, then quits and never connects to device.
-Immediately I unplug the USB from the phone (only way to quit the cycle, pressing the home screen key does not do anything) Windows immediately prompts and says "Windows has installed device drivers but they may not work until you reboot your computer.
-Naturally I reboot my computer (have done several times, and with the phone connected to various different USB ports, and checking to make sure a flawed driver is not lurking in device manager, it doesn't show one there).

The phone DOES connect in Storage and Internet mode, just fine. It only does this if trying to connect in Kies mode, or in Media Player mode.

ALSO, this phone DID connect to Kies at my ex workplace just fine, so it seems unlikely it's the phone. I never had tried to connect to this laptop, only since I lost the job and am at home for awhile. So.............. Can anyone assist me with how to get the computer to properly load the correct drivers so that it will recognize my Galaxy S?

Samsung Galaxy S :: New Version Of Kies Available

Sep 26, 2010

There is a new version of kies available 1.5.3.10093.31. I couldn't get it from the update within kies, so quite by accident I clicked on samsung widgets and it said I needed the latest version of kies, click ok to download. Am downloading right now and it's taking ages so haven't had a chance to see if its any better but will post back when I have had a chance to see. It has just finished installing and as soon as kies started it came up with a fatal error and closed down, so I think that just about says it all. Will report back later when I have had sometime to try and sort it out.

Samsung Captivate :: Kies - Older Version Available To Download And Usable

Nov 16, 2010

I've been doing a bit of research, and it seems that Samsung Kies is not meant for (or supported) for North America. Apparently, the older versions of Kies could work on our Captivates and was available to download through Samsung's Europe site. However, the newer versions of Samsung Kies can apparently detect that we've got North American Captivates and will not connect. Anybody have links to the older versions? Doesn't proprietary-ness totally defeat the reason we bought androids in the first place?

Samsung Galaxy S :: Connecting Phone To PC Via USB And Kies

Sep 9, 2010

If we put aside the fact that Kies has many problems and that connecting the phone through usb is a real pain I found a solution that some of you might be interested in. I wasn't able to connect to KIES a few days ago no matter what I tried. I wanted to back up some contacts etc but couldn't. Also I wanted it to work in case froyo comes out.

Anyway I found out the reason why it didn't work. Instead of using touchwiz I was using the launcher pro interface. Turned out that if I wanted to connect to KIES I had to switch back to the touchwiz interface and then connect the USB. Don't ask me why this worked but it did.. So if you have problems with KIES and aren't using touchwiz my advice is to put it back on in case you need to connect to KIES.

Samsung Galaxy S :: Can't Get Kies To Recognise My Phone

Aug 22, 2010

My husband and I have just purchased Galaxy S- neither one is picked up by Kies when connecting via USB. I have tried changing the USB settings to Samsung Kies, as well as Ask on connection- no joy. Have tried another PC- no joy. Running Windows 7 v6.1.We are both on the Optus network in Australia which has insufficient knowledge of the products they are selling, as does Samsung itself.
