Default Jelly Bean Update Via Kies

Hello Just wondered if anyone could help. I have unrooted Galaxy S3 and have just gone to complete latest update via Kies. All was going smoothly, download to phone was complete, when error came up on PC USB device not recognised. Have updated the drivers via Kies but left with phone saying "Downloading Do not turn off target." Worried now about rebooting phone. Also cannot get Kies to now connect with phone. Can anyone help please?

First off welcome to the forums!

I have moved this thread into the Galaxy S3 forums so that you can get some specific device support from people with your device

Hope this helps!

1. Uninstall any previous instance of Kies/USB driver
2. Download the latest Kies, specific to your S3.
3. Download Samsung USB drivers 1.4.6.0 (I've tried newer versions but they all failed)
4. REBOOT
5. Disconnect from internet (VERY IMPORTANT!!! - forcing Windows to install local drivers ONLY)
6. With the phone disconnected, install Kies + USB drivers downloaded in steps 2,3
7. Connect the phone and let Windows install the drivers.
8. Reestablish the internet connection.

I found this on another forum and it worked for me.
