    Default Sg3 wont connect with windows 8

    Hey everyone, first post... Unfortunately its for help lol

    Just got a new laptop running Windows 8 64bit, and it won't recognize my sg3

    Tried the proper driver, installed kies, still nothing.
    Phone/device not showing in device manager either.

    Would really like to get it setup to sync /xfer files

    Sg3 is running slimbean 4.1.2

    Any ideas?

    Try using Kies Air or any one of the other bazillion apps that allow you to establish a browser connection to your S3.

    Make sure you download the drivers from Samsung website.

    Mate dont worry my phone was never recognised in kies on windows 8, I went back to windows 7 and I was fine, im not sure why it doesnt get recognised. Maybe samsung will update kies soon to make it work.

    Well right now kies isn't compatible with my phone /rom

    In using airdroid which is OK but i Am strongly leaning towards w7. W8 is a joke in every aspect

    That's weird I'm on slimbean 4.2.1 and my phone connects to my windows 8 PC fine. I didn't even have to install the drivers or kies.

    Then again I booted into twrp recovery and enabled USB mode through there.
