Re: Any sign over the Air or Kies ICS?

Yeah, just wanted to know if there was an auto-search for new firmware, or some kind of refresh button. Kies doesn't seem to always notice that my device is plugged in, even though my computer does. safer to just keep it in for the time being.
I've enabled auto-download now, but there doesn't seem to be any listings in the box underneath? I would have assumed that my phone would be in that list so that I could tick it to enabme? Or would nothing show up until there is an update available?
Picture included.

Thanks.

Re: Any sign over the Air or Kies ICS?

I have a similar issue, but the firmware does see A phone when its pluged in, but doesn't recognise the model or anything.  Just shows a picture of a phone with no name.

 

Keep plugging it in to KIES, as I'm trying to get it upgraded before i leave for the weekend...:smileyindifferent:

Re: Any sign over the Air or Kies ICS?

I have the same problem... Its crazy. Doesn't help that I've never used Kies before, I only downloaded it to get ICS before I go away! Supposedly it's released, but I haven't heard of anyone that's got it yet so manybe its still uploading to the servers?

Re: Any sign over the Air or Kies ICS?

One thing I have noticed with Kies is that if you plug the phone in with the keypad locked on the phone it doesn't recognise it. if you unlock the keypad (mine is protected with a Pin number) then Kies will see it.

IMHO this is how it should be - it stops anyone grabbing hold of your phone and getting at its content without knowking the pin number

Re: Any sign over the Air or Kies ICS?

Could be a Java issue. Might be worth making sure you've got the latest version of Java installed?

Re: Any sign over the Air or Kies ICS?

Out of interest, has anyone actually received the update yet? Kies is doing its usual "this is the latest firmware" trick yet there seem to be many reports online stating the update is available.

 

Before the grump police start jumping on their soap boxes, I'm not being inpatient, I'm simply asking a question... that's one of the purposes of a forum...

Nothing for me yet either.

Somebody earlier said that releases are staggered? What does that even mean?

Re: Any sign over the Air or Kies ICS?

Reave - it means that it doesn't become available to everyone at the same time. This can be done for network bandwidth reasons or to ensure if there is an issue, the impact is mitigated.

 

If this is a Kies only update I'm not sure they'd stagger it though. The vast, vast majority of S2 users won't be like the ones on this forum, connecting every 5 minutes to see if it is available yet. They'll simply wait to be told.

Re: Any sign over the Air or Kies ICS?

You'd think there'd be some kind of official statement from Vodafone letting us know what the status is, especially given yesterdays delays.

Re: Any sign over the Air or Kies ICS?

phils1982 - as frustrating as it is, in the time it takes a global company to get an official statement signed off and released they'll probably have fixed any problems they have. 

 

They will only release an official statement if and when they know exactly what the problem is, how they're going to fix it and when it will be fixed. At the moment they're probably working through kinks and unknowns.

I am rather annoyed that yet again there has been a Hugh mess up and Vodafone again blaming Samsung rather then say its us we messed up I have been waiting for this upgraded software since middle of feb when my sources from samsung said Vodafone are testing the software and should be released in weeks. As I said that was feb we now in April 2 months later and nowt tried kies 3 times today and nothing my phone is slow unresponsive freezes every now and again and I'm paying £57 a month for it!!!

thought I did have the latest version, just to be sure I uninstalled both 32 and 64 bit versions and reinstalled. Same issue. Something to do with 64bit?

Re: Any sign over the Air or Kies ICS?

As I've stated many times in the past, people keep asking the same questions and have the same complaints about the update, then people complain about people complaining about the update. It would be just common sense to ignore it all until you have something of worth to add to the thread, as I do. People are more than capable of turning a few pages and reading them.
