    I have a Galaxy S which keeps freezing. Wanted to retry flashing it with kies. It says I am on the latest firmware but how can I simply wipe it and reflash just to make sure I don't have some kind of corruption? sorry for daft quesion but newbie.

    Thanks

    If I go into restore mode and delete the cache then plug into kies, will it know there is no firmware and download new?

    You can't reflash using KIEs. Even if you do a factory reset, the firmware is still there. The same goes for cache.
