    I am trying to upgrade my Samsung Galaxy S and my home computer is a MAC. The download is not made for a MAC. What now? Has anyone figured this out:thinking: Please share.

    There have been at least two posts about this - try doing a search.
    However, it is probably only possible if you use Windows via Boot Camp.
    Kies Mini will not work with Android. Parallels does not work. Simplest solution is to find a friend with a PC. You won't need to do it often. Gingerbread has just been temporarily pulled. After that I guess there may be one or two minor changes but that is likely to be it!

    You can either find a friend with Windows, install Windows on your Mac, or learn to flash roms using Hemdall.
