Default Cannot upgrade Samsung Galaxy SL

Hi All,

I am trying to upgrade my Samsung Galaxy SL from 2.2 froyo to 2.3 gingerbread as the update is officially available , however when I connect through Kies , it recognizes the phone and shows that the firmware upgrade is available , and when i accept terms and conditions and try to move to the next step of upgrade , Kies gives an error message " connection lost" and then it tries to find the phone again and shows that there is a firmware upgrade available and it just keeps going on in a loop endlessly.

Any suggestions pls ?

Try reinstalling Kies and updating it to latest version.

You might want to ask in your phone's home forums which is here:
Samsung Galaxy SL - Android Forums It's not a busy forum or I'd simply move your thread over there. The users there own/use your phone and are more familiar with it and the upgrade procedure. Good luck.

Go Launcher, Launcher Pro, SPB. Etc. Basically the interface of the phone to make it look different.

I was using Go keyboard , I removed it , and still the same issue , I am not using any other launcher on my phone , its still connects , shows the upgrade , I click to move forward and upgrade , it says phone is disconnected and then it finds the phone again and the loop continues , its very frustrating that such a simple thing would take so much time to do.

Hi guys..
I too had the same problem with my office PC.
Initially i thought maybe my office PC was the problem. To confirm, i then connected a laptop to my LAN and tried again. Problem not solved. I also tried uninstaling and reinstalling kies but again the problem was not solved.
Then i went home and tried it in my personal laptop, it worked!
Now everytime i open KIES in office, it still shows the same error. Thus i have to update (or check for updates) on my personal laptop.
Maybe it has something to do with the internet connection!? i really dont know.
if you have any friend with internet @ home, try connecting to his pc and then check.

hope it works for u!
