    Don't you need the Kies software to update Samsung phones? I thought their updates were done over the PC?

    It's there in all Android handsets I believe. Probably easier for manufacturers to leave it in and have it not work, than take it out and potentially break something.

    If there is an update, I presume it's via Kies but my knowledge of samsung procedures is limited, sorry.

    Hi!
    Back to the 1st question.
    Even i am getting this error message. When i try to upgrade through Wi-Fi at home or office i get this same message. What to do?

    Second, currently my galaxy SL GTi9003 is having firmware version 2.2.1 and Kernel version: 2.6.32.9 root@SE-S605 #1 and build number: Froyo.DDKF1

    Is this the original launch version? I did try to update it officially but i'm not sure whether i've done it successfully or not!! :mad:
    I have read abt how gingerbread is unofficially available, but i dont want to take chaces. i want to know if this version that i mentioned above is officially the most recent or not?

    and btw i bought this phone in Delhi through samsung dealer.

    Thanks u guys

    to the 1st question, i believed el presidente has answered it. you cn only do the update through kies. and for gingerbread, you can opt to update manually through the link i posted. i had this done to my phone since august and up until now, i dont have any issues (gingerbread 2.3.4 XXKPE version). two or three days later, XXKPH was released but i did not bother to update to it cause XXKPE was perfect for my phone already. if you decided to do it, just make sure to follow the instructions correctly and itll be fine.

    most stable version right now for gingerbread is XXKPM
    flash first with XXKPE then XXKPM
    you cant flash from froyo to XXKPM directly

    ill still stick to XXKPE or XXKPH though cause the model used for this gingerbread version is the i9003 while xxkpm used the samsung GIO. (or is it just me being paranoid.....)
