    Hey guys,
    So i have Samsung Galaxy Ace and i wanna update firmware from 2.3.3 to 2.3.6 via Kies.
    When i connect my phone to PC and open up Kies it says that my current firmware version isn't available to upgrade via Kies.
    Any thoughts on this ?

    go to Setting->about phone.

    there you will find the baseband version also the current android version.

    Did you try updating via OTA.

    Setting->about phone->Update.

    Same problem here; also VodafoneRo as carrier; baseband S5830XWKP7.
    I've tried to update from 2.3.3 via Kies; no chance: "your device does not support software upgrade via kies".
    Via OTA (Setting->about phone->Update) i get a similar result ("no update available", but I'm sure that there are available updates.)
    The phone is not locked and still has warranty (that's why I don't want to update via ODIN).

    Samsung releases its firmware updates according to regions. They have not given all regions the latest updates, like for S5830 the best they gave was 2.3.6, and that was over a year ago. It was S5830DDKQ8, for the Indian region and nearby countries.
    A lot of people use firmwares of different regions. I am from India but i am using the S5830XWKPN firmware, that is for the european countries, also i am rooted so i have not faced any problems, but if you intend to use unrooted stock firmware, you may want to look up the problems first that you may have if you use a different firmware.

    If Kies and OTA does not show an avaialable update then Odin is your only option for an updated software.
    In my opinion, if you still have warranty then its best to try rooting and flashing via Odin now, because if you mess up you can go to the service center with an innocent look and tell them that you were playing angry birds and it just stopped working all of a sudden, get it fixed for free.:p:D

    All samsung firmwares, Odin, drivers, ops files and flash guides are available at sammobile.com
