    The immaculate Kies has been updated.
    It is now on (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 At least Samsung are consistent; both versions are garbage.


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

    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.......

    What happens if you un-install completely and then re-download and install?

    I have tried this and re-installed several versions of Kies and still am being advised to update Kies to 2.3.012035_16.......the version installed is

    2.3.012035_16 is the latest version.

    So, you have completely un-installed 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?

    Yes....i have done all to the letter and still get the same message telling me to update to the latest version......

    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,, and then when it is installed it offers to update to

    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.

    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.

    Downloaded and installed your suggestion.

    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.
