Default New version of Kies released by Samsung

The immaculate Kies has been updated.
It is now on 2.3.3.12085_7_5 (3 Sept 2012)
Samsung Downloads

If you are like me and never use Kies, and only update it just in case there has been any improvements made to the USB and modem drivers, then see my post here to download the USB drivers only

See My Kies Post for reinstallation instructions should you encounter problems.

For the PC maybe, the Mac version is still 1.2.0.12012_6. At least Samsung are consistent; both versions are garbage.

EDIT

I stand corrected, just downloading a new Mac version of Kies (v1.3.0.12023_9).

Is this programme real ! Don't know how many times I have updated Kies, but still all I get is connecting . . . . . . . . . when I connect my phone. How hard is it to make a programme that works ! Little things like this mount up, seriously will consider non samsung phone in future.

If just because of Kies, you give up arguably the best phone in the current market, I think you shortchange yourself. The thing with Android is, you have alternatives to Kies. You can go through the life of the phone without connecting to it.

The only reason I use Kies is for official firmware upgrades, but do you know how many just went ahead and flash the upgrades without having to wait and use Kies? There are so many alternative apps for syncing and backup in the market too.

That Kies is not the best software out there is pretty obvious although I suspect its because they are trying to make it work with too many phones using different operating systems. But like I said, you can live without it, so why bother getting all bothered with it?

Kies 2.2.0.12014_18_8 (8th Mar 2012) is now available to download off the Samsung website.

Edit.
This one also comes with a component update that is downloaded on first run.
Not sure exactly what gets updated (hopefully its the USB drivers) , but just thought I'd let you know.

Not had any issues yet.......

2.3.012035_16 is the latest version.

So, you have completely un-installed 2.2.0.12014_18 and all of it's drivers in Add/Remove programs in Control Panel and then cleaned your registry and then downloaded the latest version from the Samsung site?

So... you un-install the old version and you install the new version of Kies, after cleaning your registry and rebooting, and it still tells you to update... even though you have now downloaded and installed the latest version direct from Samsung. You can check this in Kies by going to Help and About.

Try updating without the phone being connected. See if that works. I think the Kies on the Samsung site is still the older version.

How odd! You're right Russell. The Samsung site does offer the older download, 2.2.0.12014_18.8, and then when it is installed it offers to update to 2.3.0.12035_16.

The question is each time i try the update it offers the same update repeatadly......and yes i have done all the steps afformentioned to get round this but i always end up back at the dreaded "Please update to the newer version"

Any other ideas chaps ?????

I manage to update fine without going through the hassle of uninstalling and reinstalling Kies. The only thing that seems to be different is that when I updated, I did not connect the phone, so it was just a pure Kies update.

The only other advise I've read is for you to uninstall Kies, clean all registry and then only reinstall Kies. Since the Samsung website is still using the old version, you should get a notice to update when you on Kies. Try update without any connection to the phone.

Cheers

I have installed Kies 2.2.0.12014_18_8 and after that when i try to connect my S2 it's started saying that "Your device does not support software upgrading via Kies" not sure why is it so,

Even Samsung Service Ceneter people also not aware of this issue and they are also unbale to answer to this,

Some one can please let me know why it's occuring like this.

If the installation process goes round & round in circles, then turn off your anti-virus/internet security, then try re-installation.

I had a problem like this and found the only way to get Kies to install correctly is to turn it off, then do it.

Splash screen does not show the version after 18 has been displayed.

Providing you downloaded from the Samsung link, which does show the .2 version, you're OK.

Oh joy, time for another round of Kies telling me there's an update, downloading an update, failing to apply an update, telling me there's an update, downloading an update, failing to apply an update... ad infinitum.

Thing is, I don't actually use the thing, so why do I feel the need to keep it updated?

This version, 2.3.2.12064_10, is the latest and, "could", solve some people's connection problems.

I can also confirm that it connected my phone on ICS, LPI, straight away and connects perfectly.

I noticed that Kies have been improving too. I even use it to do my contacts now. I hate it that Google puts all my google contacts in MY CONTACTS group of google and I can't get it to be removed through the phone or through the web. Using Kies, I can actually remove it from that group as long as I make sure contact is in another group.

Just don't do too many contacts at once since it might have a problem updating and you have to do all over again. Do something like 10 or 20 then sync to phone.

That said, I never really had too much problem getting Kies to recognize my phone. First time I used, updates was too slow and liable to stop in the middle. The last couple was quick and smooth.

I'm having loads of trouble getting my phone to connect to kies. Have just uninstalled all the drivers as recommended. Am now re installing Kies. I wondered what all the fuss was about originally (only got my S2 in July) and it has always connect without a hitch. Updated Kies last night and I've now spent 2 hours trying without success. I did manage to connect over wifi and it showed an updated firmware for my phone. It's all in the correct mode etc. Argh. Just shows connecting.

Not out of options yet, so will post back if/when I am.

For such a good manufacturer of phones, they do seem to be let down a bit by Kies (or the usb drivers) Shame really.

In case you haven't tried these 2...

1. Try different USB ports

2. Try it without the sim card installed

Worth a try!


EDIT New version of Samsung's PC Suite, Kies, has been released.

Now on version 2.3.3.12085_7_5

Tried different USB ports. Worked fine up until the B S of D whilst downloading to the phone (seems not to like the USB hub with the printer on it.) Anyway, no harm done. Installed Kies on the other PC and everything went fine. Now running 4.0.4 stock rom from T Mobile. Have now removed Kies from my main PC.
