CharlesSoft — software you always wished someone would write

right click on the install kies file and choose
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.

Still nothing

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
I have now 2 other computers running kies on Mac osx 10.8.1
Use pacifist above to load the main kies then open kies. Check for updates and do the kies update ,reboot mac

Do all that with no phone connected.

After reboot connect the phone with it unlocked

And kies should detect the phone in a few minutes if not toggle camera mode back to media device
Or follow my step by step guide above, I will edit it later for the 10.8 setup
