    I'm unable to launch the update.zip via Vol Up+Home+Power so I attempted via adb and I receive the Status 7 error.

    After that failed I figured I'd check to see if I could get 2.2 for my phone. Kies tells me there's a firmware upgrade to I897xxx7 (sorry forget the version name). I attempt to upgrade it however Kies crashes at the same point each time. I then tried on my 2nd pc and the same problem happened. I tried to update Kies on both however I ended up doing a full reinstall. Kies now does not recognize my phone on both computers yet windows (32b XP) does.

    Also reinstalled USB drivers.*

    So to sum it up, I cannot root, cannot get Kies to recognize my phone, and cannot upgrade the firmware.

    Help!

    Firmare: 2.1u1

    Complete uninstall KIES and the samsung drivers, and then reinstall KIEs again. Also format your internal SD card.

    Tried, no such luck. Still says device not supported in kies.

    Edit: any way to update to 2.2 without kies?
