I loaded kies on my macbook pro that did not have it loaded when I had 10.7
I used pacifist.app to get it to load. (trial version)
CharlesSoft — software you always wished someone would write
right click on the install kies file and choose pacifist.app
when in pacifist select the kies top file then click install.
BUT kies just sits there saying connecting with a spinning sync arrow
I tried to reload the driver by opening kies and going to the tools drop down and then selecting driver.
I will edit my other post to reflect that one should have kies loaded prior to upgrading to 10.8, that does work for me.
You may want to try these to see if it works for you, but I doubt it, but still worth a try, a note that I do not have itunes properly configured on my macbook as I dont want it on there, so maybe it would work for you?
let us know
best of luck
