    Version - not had chance to try it yet, but I hope it will fix the USB connection issues, and may even let me flash my phone!

    Thanks for the heads up, but today is 17th, do you mean tomorrow? No updates showing up for me yet.

    Oops - sorry, I meant the 17th - typo.

    It is a full download, don't know if the installed version has detected it , as I don't have it installed at work

    Support for Galaxy S SAMSUNG

    It DOES now say there is a firmware update available. Will check how to backup apps then go for it.

    You are right. Strange though. Launching KIES update checker doesn't say that there's an update.

    Edit: No firmware update for me. Still using JG4. But the "your phone's version cannot be updated" message has been changed to the more appropriate "your phone's version is the newest".

    I am currently updating it, but Kies is veeeeery slow to download the update. It has been more than an hour now and it has only downloaded 28% of the update so far.
    Am I the only one experiencing this?

    The update should be completed tomorrow morning :D

    I just finished the update.

    It took over three hours.

    Many times I got a pop up saying there was no internet connection. I clicked Retry and the download resumed.

    Many times it appeared to stall.

    I just waited it out and it finally completed.

    Thanks stephen67 for your answer, it is exactly what I am seeing.
    I am just glad to know that I am not the only one, so I know the problem is not on my side.
    I had to update many "PC suite like" programs in the past, from Sony Ericsson, Nokia, Apple, RIM, LG, (and also Samsung), but it is the first time ever I am having such a headache to update one of these programs.

    This thread is more about the Kies SW update than about a possible GS update :)

    Whatever. People are saying that they are updating the phone. That attracts my attention. :)

    Maybe you are thinking of this thread?

    The only mention of a firmware update in the current thread are these ones:

    Still no Kies update on mine here in the UK.

    I'm sim free and running Vista and have v1.5.1.10074_2 presently running.

    I wonder if this update is OS specific?

    I also have v1.5.1.10074_2

    The new version I have just downloaded form the samsung site (link at top of thread) is


    no sign of any firmware update though. My handset is sim free/unlocked from factory


    Ok - im confusted now.

    Just been back surfing around the samsung site - now the screen is telling me that the Kies software was updated on the 18/08/10 (as opposed to the 17/08/10) but the version that it is offering me is which is the same version I downloaded last week!

    doesn't fix usb connection problem, still will not load my galaxy s, just get looping mtp application, although not as fast as before it looks like it is scanning and doesn't connect.

    useless crap.

    (SGS Orange unbranded and unlocked)

    Download the lastest version of kies from the link. It's an international version.

    I am new to smart phones and have the Galaxy S for just a week. Found out about Kies and although samsungmobile say its a 139MB download all I can get after a 4 hr download session is 89MB. When I try to execute the file it doesn't appear to do anything.:thinking:

    I'd be grateful for advice and suggestions or even better places to download from.

    As I am also unable to get the internet I was expecting I guess I am going to a great reader of the forum for all the good advice I am sure has been offered to previous numpties like me.

    Nice to join you happy people.

    Kies download/update SUCKS!!!
    I guess you already read the whole thread, but just in case, see the 4 threads here
    You might need to download it again :(
    I will try to put the latest version on rapidshare, or anything similar.
    IF I can download it in less than 4 hours :(

    I got it down in about 6 minutes. My phone syncs with it (though it did with the old version) but now when I try and sync my contacts with outlook it tells me I need executive admin level permission, which as far as I knew I had!

    The looping mtp application thing is a known problem and solvable. You need to unmount and format your phone's internal SD card then reboot. Chances are you still won't be able to connect to Keis, but that one specific problem will be gone.

    Lucky you!
    I downloaded 26% so far and still have 40 minutes remaining :(
    I found out (at least, on my PC) that for some reasons, it is faster with IE than with Firefox.
