    Default Help With KIES/Why Does Kies Suck so bad?

    Have a T-Mobile GS5 and want to upgrade to the newest firmware that allows VoLTE. Simple, right? Just plug into KIES and upgrade. Well, nothing can be further from the truth. 2 Macs, 1 PC, 1 VM, lots of uninstalling and reboots of phones and computers, nothing.

    Just says you need 100MB of space free. Funny, I've got 4GB free on the phone, cleared all caches (system and all apps), removed the SD card, etc. Same BS error.

    It's not available OTA yet but one would imagine it would be simple to grab with the software as it sees the phone perfectly.

    Any suggestions? Don't want to do a factory reset as backup on Android sucks and I don't want to spend another month setting up my phone and re-setting up apps.

    I was under the impression that the OTA had to be released for Kies to upgrade the OS.

    Hmm... AFAIK it's been released for T-Mobile users in VoLTE areas but available for those of us not upgraded yet. That may explain it though.
