    Hello, i am stuck & need some answers please. I am on Vodafone with SGS3 with 4.3 on it ( ota myself ) but it was bug riddled as we all know. I down graded it via odin but now i see though Kies the following message - Your device's firmware version is not supported to update firmware via Kies. I have this below - PDA:MJ9 / PHONE:MJ9 / CSC:MJ9 (KOR)

    Any ideas please?

    Umm, where did you get the build that you loaded via Odin? Can you provide a link?

    What model and region are you in?

    Do you remember what build (like the MJ9 part) you had before you upgraded to 4.3?

    For installing what is billed as "The first ever leak of 4.3, I hope you learned a lesson.

    KOR sounds like the region code for Korea.

    Sounds like you need this

    Be sure to boot into Recovery mode and clear the cache and perform a Factory Reset after updating the firmware.

    This might interest you; I have an unlocked S3 in UK & got the 4.3 update, which as we all know was terrible. I did however, get an update to that which fixed every single problem I had; no doubt the carriers are not too far behind.
    Good luck though.

    Hey folks, My Kies now says - Current Firmware : PDAMK6 / PHONE:MK1 / CSC:MK4 (VD2)
    But my current firmware is not supported by Kies

    Barry,
    You loaded the firmware that I pointed out? And Odin said that it completed successfully? The Phone and CSC should both have been updated to MK6.

    And you did clear the system cache and perform a Factory Reset after updating the firmware?

    Barry,
    Now that everything is showing MK6 you can try using Kies and see if it'll load the correct region - in the Kies software, select the second item in the Tools menu and just follow the prompts to enter the model number (in CAPS) and IMEI/Serial Number (both found under the battery - it's ok to remove the battery at this point).

    Hopefully Kies will load the correct region this time around.

    I'm not sure what's up with the firmware on Sammobile...

    Barry,
    Sorry, I went back to the link that I originally provided you, and your response in post #13, then I went back to the Sammobile detail - looks like what you reported in post #13 was the correct version information for all components. I just can't explain why Kies wasn't happy with it.

    My bad - sorry about the extra thrash.
