    having had my Galaxy S since last Sept and periodically trying to connect it with Kies unsuccessfully I was surprised tonight when it connected.

    It offered to upgrade firmware. I followed instructions until it advised that download had failed leaving me a purple screen on the phone. I've followed the instructions for an emergency firmware recovery but the Kies is now unsuccessfully trying to connect the device.

    The phone displays a warning triangle "downloading" with a message of "Do not turn off Target!!!"

    Can anyone help a non tecki? Is my phone knackered? how do I get back to where I was originally?

    Thanks to anyone who can help

    Had similar recently.
    Open kies and select emergency firmware recovery.
    Boot phone into download
    Then connect to the pc
    this should trigger the process.
