Samsung Vibrant :: NO 64-bit Drivers - No KIES

Oct 18, 2010

I just finished dealing with Samsung Technical Support. First, a lengthy session w/ online Chat, ending with
"Diana: I am sorry, but we have reached the limit of our technical knowledge on this product. I am sorry,we at the chat support provide the basic troubleshooting information for our products,our agents in the voice support provide the next level of support for further assistance.
Diana: I suggest you to contact Samsung Technical Support at 1-888-987-4357 ...."

So, I went to online phone support, and was eventually told that Samsung has no Kies, mini-Kies, or any other support software for the Samsung Vibrant in with 64-bit computers (i.e. computers running Windows 7 in 64-bit mode). I assume this means that the 32-bit software works fine, as most 32-bit software does, but the hangup (no phone pun intended) is in the drivers. That's why it choked when I connected my phone and it tried to install the drivers. Can't use the software without the driver, and can't use the 32-bit driver in 64-bit windows.

Before online phone support told me it was impossible, she did send me to this page, to do a download of mini-Kies: http://ars.samsung.com/customer/usa/jsp/faqs/faqs_view_us.jsp?SITE_ID=22&PG_ID=2&PROD_SUB_ID=55 7&PRO...

I don't know why she thought the one Samsung makes available when someone clicks through their support links was not good enough, but she was very definite she wanted me to use the other one instead. Here's the general Vibrant support links for downloads:
Samsung
from:
Samsung

Incidentally, while I was getting Online Chat support, I was told:
"Yes,it is compatible with the 64 bit windows also."
She also said that the full Kies (not just the mini-Kies) would be made available for the Vibrant, but since she was wrong about the 64-bit, ....

The phone support person did tell me that Samsung is working on making it available for 64-bit, but had no idea when that would be. She said, loyally, "soon."

I wanted to use Samsung's Kies software to connect (tether, with the USB cable) my phone to my laptop to use as an Internet connection. Now I can't do that until either (a) I find a 3rd party app that does this, or Samsung gets around to developing 64-bit drivers.

Anybody have any experience with using any 3rd party apps to tether to a 64-bit Win7 computer, for Internet service?

As I think about it, I think there's no excuse for Samsung having wasted so much of my time before telling me it was impossible. The pages their website lead me to said nothing about it working only for 32-bit. The software did not check to see if I had 64-bit and warn me it was fruitless. Online tech support said it would work with 64-bit. The page the phone tech support person took me to did specify 32-bit. Only then did I find out that I'd wasted all of this time. My time wasting was increased since I worried that maybe there was some problem with my laptop, so went through the whole process again with my desktop before trying to deal w/ Tech Support.

Samsung I7500 :: Unable To Install USB Drivers After Rooting

Oct 11, 2009

I got my galaxy few days ago and Yesterday I got home to my comp. I had an Israeli firmware version which is really annoying.
After reading in this forum and the Italian HD forum I successfully flashed the firmware(to H8 cause you people said the II5 is buggy) and rooted my phone. I want to install the USB drivers but I have a problem: I've already seen the guide that kam made but when i try to install the ADP driver I get this message(after it recognizes its a ADP driver but not recognize galaxy): I think this pictures will explain better than words. What happened when i install the driver: This is how my device manager looks AFTER i installed(unsuccessfully) the driver: this is how the driver looks: I use windows XP if somebody is confused. You can see in the "details" that my phone is VID_04E8&PID_6640&MI_04 So that is not the problem. UPDATE: I managed to solve my problem with this file.

Samsung Behold 2 :: Cannot Install Phone Drivers On Windows 7 64 Bit

Aug 18, 2010

I have had this phone since April and it has been pretty disappointing overall with the whole not upgrading to Android 2.1 and such, but that's not the issue right now. I bought a new laptop about 2 weeks ago and I want to use my phone with my laptop. I download the drivers for the phone and they could not install and everytime I connect the phone to the computer it says the device is not recognized. The phone now can't connect and I can't see the files that are on the phone. I want to be able to put music and videos on my phone and I can't now. It works perfectly fine one my desktop which is an XP, but I wont be able to use the desktop because I will be leaving for college soon.

Samsung Captivate :: Unable To Install USB Drivers - Correct Zip File

Oct 6, 2010

I am unable to install the USB drivers for Windows XP - I have downloaded the correct zip file, but the drivers are marked as being detrimental to Windows XP somehow and they just won't install. Can I copy them out of the zip file and manually put them somewhere? I'm inching ever so slowly towards rooting and am trying to get my ducks in line - but they're not cooperating.

Samsung Vibrant :: Flight Mode / Network Time

Aug 27, 2010

If you go into settings/date and time the first option is a check box that says Automatic (use network-provided values). If you uncheck that it does not stick through a reboot. Upon restarting your phone this box will be checked once again. Now for the interesting part. If I put the phone into flight mode, uncheck the automatic box and then change the time and/or date. The instant I re-check automatic the time is reset correctly. How is this possible? I thought that flight mode actually turned the radio off. If it does indeed turn the radio off then how is the phone able to instantly set the time to the correct value?

A buddy of mine just got the Vibrant and he was asking me if there is a way to do a manual install of Froyo rather than wait for the update. Could somebody direct me to step by step instructions if they are available? Would he have to root? I searched for a bit but didn't find anything specifically for the Vibrant.

Samsung Vibrant :: What If I Have More Than 2gb Of Apps And Games To Install?

Sep 1, 2010

The vibrant is advertised as 16gb internal memory, however after all of whatever is on the 16gb we're left with about 12.75 give or take of room left. Now i see that 2gb is apparently reserved for apps and the like, while the other is for music,movies, and so on. here is where my questions begin...

What if I have more than 2gb of apps and games to install? Will it not let me or will it partition more room? I think its kind of stupid to have a phone with this much internal memory and only let 2gb of it be for apps and games, that is absolutely stupid. I may consider activating my 14 day buyers remouse should this be the case. (and its not really 2gb, its 1.58gb)

I do plan on getting an 8gb+ class 4 or above microsd card, can i install apps to this WITHOUT rooting? or is rooting needed?I really, REALLY, hope im not screwed over with only 2gb of wiggle room for apps and games. that will definately put a halt on things.

I've just read this on android community.com.."When you say "only 2GB", this is plenty. Most apps are well under 5MB, so you can easily install 500 to 1000 apps on your phone.Android 2.2 is due out for these phones in September, which allows you to move apps onto the 14GB partition if you need/want to."Any truth to being able to move apps to the bigger partition? Becuase this would definately put my mind at ease.I also read that its not your choice if you can, the developer has to enable it in said application. so that it gives you a choice of where to save it, or you can move it at a later date.

I did notice, however, that Asphalt 5 was 8mb but required 103mb of additional data to be downloaded. i was worried it would save it to the whimpy 1.58gb of space but alas, it was smarter than that, and saved it on to the 12gb part. But if the option in all/certain apps is to save it to sd (or in the vibrants case, the 12gb partition sd space, or an external SD card) that would be HUGE.

General :: How To Install ADB Drivers

Sep 22, 2013

I boot my Acer Iconia Tab A200 into fastboot mode (robot lying down and RED exclamation mark over it). I plug it into my Windows 7 (64bit) desktop computer with SDK installed, and from the directory with fastboot.exe I type FASTBOOT DEVICES but the device is not being seen, it just goes back to the prompt, like the command executed but didn't do anything. I assume this is because the drivers aren't installed. But I don't know how to install the "adb drivers".

General :: Install Linux Hardware Drivers On Android?

Dec 29, 2012

I got a wacom graphic tablett wich I want to use on my Android Tablet PC. Of course Android hasn't got a working driver for it, so thats why I want to install an opensource linux driver. So my first question is, if this might be possible. The linux driver is made for a 2.6 Kernel which of course is not complete the same as my 2.6 android Kernel, but are they similar enough to at least give it a try?

And I got an other question: A grafic tablett is you know... nothing else as a weird mouse so am I might be able to tell Android that it shoud use a simple mouse driver for the graphic tablett? Because my mouse is running well on it.
