Just got a TMobile Samsung Gravity from my cousin as a gift. Have been trying unsuccessfully to root the stupid thing for 2 days now and I am unable to download Kies. I keep getting the following message from the Kies Installshield Wizard:
Samsung Kies – Installshield Window
1152: Error extracting
C\users\Tara\AppData\Local|BF3BDE3A and 61514277
Kies.msi to the temporary location
Download Program: Kies_220.127.116.1164_10_1.exe
Here's the link to the program:
My System Info:
3.1 Windows Experience Index
2.0GB (1.75GB usable)
32bit Operating System
Service Pack: Windows 2007 Service Pack 3 (SP3)
Net Framework Client 4
and an 86xbit something or other
Using Mozilla Firefox
Now, it's two days of my life I'll NEVER be able to get back, just trying to get the phone to it's optimum use. Have downloaded Titanium Back+root, but CAN'T GET INTO THE DANGED phone.
I've done a registry clean and all I got out of it was a faster pc (not a bad thing).
I'm tethered to phone as hotspot and when I first plugged it in via usb cable, the system showed that it downloaded the driver for the device, but I don't see it ANYWHERE on my computer. Same thing with the Kies program. When I do a search in the start program box, neither Kies nor Samsung show up, however, I do see it in my temporary download folder. I never get the option to save it to desktop, so I'm at a loss.
I'm wondering if I have to register on samsung.com website in order to get the stupid download, which I don't wish to do, as EVERYONE and their mother now wants access to all your personal information.
