    What exactly did you get on the disk that came with the phone?

    Because that is all I need, just to be able to update the phone when 2.1 comes.

    Ok, I cleaned up everything starting with Samsung & did a fresh install of New PC Studio Ver 1.4.0 IL5 (got it from Samsung India site Support page for I7500).

    It detects the phone and SD Card is showing correctly however it says for I5700 only option available in PC Studio is Update. Unfortunately I am behind firewall here so unable to connect to update servers. Will try again later when I go back home.

    Fingers crossed hoping that I can get the 2.1 upgrade tonight !!!!

    I got the same message could not connect to the server I think this is because there's no update released yet even on the german samsung ..

    Got it to recognise the phone via NPS (v1.4.0 IL5) - latest one from samsung website.

    It says that the phone only supports the update operation however when you try to update you get an error that the device isn't supported.

    Sounds like it's just a waiting game now.

    I went through all of that yesterday and decided i cant be bothered to wait for samsung to update either of its NPS or KIES so i flashed the latest 2.1 firmware in with Odin. Lets just say im a very happy customer! Ive only been using it today but it seems very stable. It booted in german but i changed it to english and its all cool!

    i dont think we will have to wait long

    I think I'll give it a few days first.

    Would be much happier flashing it myself now rather than a few weeks ago though as the firmware that's around is much more likely to be production quality.

    Yea why not wait. I dont really know how samsung deals with their updates so i just jumped in. My fone was an upgrade so i was willing to take the risk. 2.1 is pretty amazing compared to 1.5. More home screens than i know wat to do with and theres an equalizer on the music player which ive been waiting for. Theres also a bunch of new samsung widgets. If anyone wants to know anything just ask

    I'm getting this message now as well. Disabled my firewall temporarily as well just to make sure its not my PC at fault.

    Just have to hope that it will connect eventually and that it finds new firmware when it actually does manage to connect.

    the reason it will not connect to the server is there's no update yet to update the phone to

    Hmm... I might ring up Samsung and see if they have a date yet. The fact is that I haven't even seen anyone get an official 2.1 update in Germany yet, let alone the rest of the world.

    Germany would be Tmobile users? Which should mean UK customers get it as well.

    I am from Germany and i can connect the phone to Kies (PC Studio does not start on my Windows 7).

    The phone is seen (with USB debug mode activated) with a strange IMEI 0000000000. On the phone the IMEI si correctly displayed.

    Until tonight, the software said that it can not find the version to update the device, now it says i have the latest version.

    Hi Dancat, so you're running an official android 2.1 updated through KIES?
    then it means the JCB is the latest official rom.

    Interesting thing to note, Samsung Mobile's Singapore website now has the New PC Studio 1.3.0 IJ1 as a Software download in the GalaxySpica section, only Samsung Kies was there before. Maybe you guys should check if your region's website has them up. I find it odd that it isn't version 1.4.0 though, since that seems to be the one capable of linking up to the phone properly.

    New PC studio does not support Windows 7, Kies will support all windows version since XP

    Still trying to find an official client(e.g NPC, SP7, Kies) to install the update, anyone find one yet :( ?

    No, I have the JCB installed with Odin.

    I could not find wnywhere the original XXIK2 to try with that one.

    The german Samsung site also has a new PC Studio, beside Kies. I will try that one and check what it says.

    Same result with SAMSUNG New PC Studio, version 1.3.0 IJ1

    I wonder what it might say if your phone was running android 1.5...
    It could be because the official rom is the same as the one you're currently running. Just can't wait!! :)

    I think the update is coming through new pc studio as you can now download it from the support for the phone I dont think samsung have sorted everything out yet for us to update the phone...the best thing to do is phone them all these sites say you can update the phone this was anounced on the 17th but they didn't say when it was available to do it
