    Hello all,

    one more time the samsung kies has fail to update my galaxy s. I have done the below mentioned procedure. Please tell me any expert where i am wrong:-

    "Firstly, make sure to backup all the important data present on your device.
    Download Samsung Kies version or something that is not the latest, you will need to uninstall the latest then install this one.
    1. Connect your phone and open Samsung Kies and let you phone be detected as usual.
    2. Keep Kies open, minimize it and run regedit in windows.
    3. Locate HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Samsung\Kies\DeviceDB\
    4. You should see some folders, named 1,2,3 etc in that folder, look for the one that mentions your current firmware, IMEI number, etc.
    5. Once you find the correct folder (only one folder mentions this information), you need to modify 3 strings by simply double-clicking on them.
    6. Locate the following 3 entries and change their value to the ones shown below. (You may first like to backup their value data to a notepad file).
    SoftwareRevision = I9000XXJF3/I9000SWC/I9000XXJF3/I9000XXJF3
    ProductCode = GT-I9000HKDXEE
    HIDSWVER = I9000XXJF3/I9000SWC/I9000XXJF3/I9000XXJF3
    Now close the Registry editor and do a Refresh. So, while Kies is minimized and still open and connected to your phone, you have changed these 3 strings.
    7. Click on

    The update has been removed by Samsung for some reason so the kies hack will not work a the moment
