    Ah ok - yea the only reason i asked about the country was because of the firmware version etc that you had mentioned and also to confirm that an update was available for the firmware available in India etc -

    Check your firmware version in settings<about phone<Build version if it is FROYO.DDKA7 then no upgrade will be available because it is the latest version.

    I am guessing the problem is with Samsung Kies on Windows 7 machine .. I am running Windows 7 64 bit on my lappy and I also face the same problems outlined by others in the thread .. So I tried upgrading on my office desktop which run Windows XP 32 bit, it went off smoothly .. It took some time to download and after upgrading the firmware, the phone took a little bit longer than usual to boot up .. Working fine afterwards .. Havent seen any improvement or change so far ..

    Hi,

    I think KC1 is the latest..so you are already up-to-date..I tried updating my KA7 .....to KC1 on windows 7 x64 machine.....didn't succeed...hopefully it will be a success on XP SP2

    Android is based on linux kernel so rooting means getting root access to the OS.root is equivalent to windows Administrator user it can do anything. You can customize everything on your smartphone once you root.

    One downside is rooting will invalidate your warranty.
