    I was trying to upgrade S5830, but couldnt via Kies.

    Well it gets stuck as soon as it starts... the error i get is "Upgrade Stoped Working"

    I did a bit of research online and went through many forums, there is alot of help to do it via other means FLASH, ROOT or through ODIN... Not sure to try any yet....

    hi all!

    can someone please update this thread? i have a new ace with froyo and i'm planning to upgrade it to gingerbread..was running through the instructions using kies and everything looked pretty simple. however just to make sure, i went to check for reviews and i came through this thread. i am now having second thoughts whether i should go on upgrading through kies. i have odin with me, too.

    i emailed samsung philippines for support and was told it would be safe to upgrade and i can do it through kies or i can go to a service center for them to help me.

    what happened to your phones after upgrading through kies? were you able to get it back to work?

    Hello, I had the same problem while updating through kies.. I tried for few times but failed.
    So I tried Odin. and it worked perfectly.. it takes 10 mins total. to upgrade through Odin. you should try it. its good..
