    I have a GT-I9100M galaxy s2 i am trying to install ICS with kies..... it will not recognize the phone. when i plug the phone into the USB port it tries to install drivers but then says the phone id cannot be found. I have tried different drivers different kies software, called samsung they gave me an excuse that is was the wrong kies. uninstalled and re-installed. it recognizeswhat type of phone it is but always tries to connect. Any ideas??? can i install the update just using the phone??

    frustrated....service provider wont help either

    To install the update to ICS, I9100MUGLD3, for the M variant using Odin, see post #1 under, "My firmware is not eligible for ICS yet but I want it now!", here.

    @Lineman69 - You can also try the driver compilation I uploaded in this post. The instructions to installing the drivers are just above the attachment.

    Found the answer posting it here

    Samsung Galaxy S3 - Error "HARDWARE ID MISSING" when plugging phone into computer. Simple Fix for Windows 7, 64-bit OS: 1. Use Control Panel to Uninstall all previous Samsung USB Drivers.
    2. Download Samsung USB Driver v1.4.6.0. from http://downloadcenter.samsung.com/c...nt_L710_GSIII_Samsung_USB_Driver_v1_4_6_0.exe
    3. Reboot computer.
    4. Disconnect computer from the Internet. *This is very important!*
    5. With the phone disconnected, install Samsung USB Driver v1.4.6.0.
    6. Connect the phone to the computer and let Windows install the drivers.

    7. Reestablish the Internet connection. This worked flawlessly for me on the first try. ***The KEY here is to disconnect from the Internet where indicated, thus forcing Windows to install the older, Samsung USB Driver v1.4.6.0. ***Following EVERY Kies update, DISCONNECT the computer from the Internet before plugging in the phone for the first time, or you will have to repeat these steps! Have a Nice Day!
