    Default Re: Gingerbread now available (finally)

    Hmm... still no joy. I'm on XP Pro, 32-bit and Kies Mini never sees the phone, USB debug or Kies USB.

    The phone is reset to factory, but rooted. Could that be it?

    TIA!

    They have some info about Kies not seeing your phone on the page.

    Kies Mini Does Not Detect The Phone:

    Depending on the amount of data stored in the phone memory, this could impair Kies Mini's ability to detect the device. It may be necessary to remove the microSD card (Requirements). Should problems persist, the internal memory may need to be purged. Backup all desired data (using instructions provided above) and then go to Menu>Settings>Privacy >Factory Data Reset. Follow the onscreen instructions and after reboot, attempt to connect to Kies Mini.

    The Media Scan process could produce a loop if connected while in progress. If this occurs, disconnect and power cycle the device. Wait until the device fully boots and the process is finished before connecting again.

    When the handset goes into download mode instructed by Kies Mini, additional drivers need to be installed. A timeout may occur from the time the drivers install until Kies Mini can detect. Should this occur, close Kies Mini and remove the cable. Next, remove the battery cover and battery. Afterwards, insert the battery, place the cover back on, and power on the device. When the device reboots, connect the data cable and open Kies Mini.

    Also they say uninstall the Samsung drivers BEFORE and then get new ones. I had only copied some pics from my phone to my computer once. I didn't have to remove the drivers, but I had to let Kies look on Windows Update for the drivers. I tried to install the drivers from Kies, but it wouldn't see my phone then.

    Been through all that a couple times, and the media scanner is not running... I'm stumped!

    I think my Captivate is haunted!

    did you remove the drivers and then let Kies contact WU to get the newest? Takes a while to do.

    also, i saw mention of some having issues because of the IE 9 update and it didn't say anything about if they were using IE 9 or not. i don't use it and just rolled my IE 9 update back before updating.

    i didn't have an issue with my AV or firewall, but i have read some had to turn all of that off on their computer before updating.

    This happened to me. I had one PC where it wouldn't upgrade because I had not removed the older drivers from when I tried to root the device and I installed Kies. I never was able to get that PC to recognize the phone (it would keep saying the USB device malfunctioned and when you looked at the hardware ID, it said USB/UNKNOWN).

    I used another PC and was able to upgrade the device.

    You may try to do a system restore back to before you installed Kies and then go and remove any Samsung drivers you had installed. That may help. If not, it will be a lot of research and trial and error to get the old drivers off.

    Well, this is frustrating! Somewhere in the attempts to upgrade, wifi got broken! It sticks at "Obtaining IP address from..." and never connects. Tried several networks, even the open one at a local AT&T store, no joy.

    What really capped it (heh!) was when, on a whim, I plugged my wife's Captivate in, and it was instantly recognised! Grrr....

    Two differences between our phones; hers is still Eclair, and hers is not rooted.

    Just for grins, over the weekend I tried to un-root, but SuperOneClick couldn't do it.

    My phone was never rooted, but I still had the same problem. Have you tried a factory reset? That solved the problem for me after a while. I

    Before my reset, though, I used this app: https://market.android.com/details?i...b3JlZml4ZXIiXQ..

    to fix my wifi a few times, and it did fix the problem, but it seemed to only be a temporary solution (a few weeks-months before breaking again), but it does save yourself from a reset.

    I know I repeat this a lot but I'm a firm believer in a factory reset after a OS upgrade.

    I've done the factory reset and the FXR, still no joy.

    Has anyone else with a rooted phone done the upgrade?

    Well, I'm finally there!

    Ended up using the ODIN packages from xda-dev, from here.

    Very nice!

    Would you please share all the steps you took to get there. I am trying to use the official Samsung upgrade with Kies, but even after trying several times, doing factory resets, the process still gets stuck on the step when Kies is trying to put stuff on the captivate (the yellow download screen on my cappy). Not sure what else can be.

    I thought of giving ODIN a go, but all the discussion at xda-developer is very over-whelming for a android newbie like me.

    Thanks


    EDIT: My captivate is stock Froyo 2.2 and has never been rooted before.

    I've been trying to figure out how to get my phone to stop having all of the issues that formed once I updated to Gingerbread, and I'm not feeling too good about having to do a factory reset just to fix it. It seems as though a lot of people are having the same issues as I am (force close tethering manager all the time, keyboard likes to switch to Deutsch when I want to switch to the numbers/punctuation keyboard, it will randomly restart from time to time, and then it has some minor random issues that don't occur as frequently). I'm hesitant to do the factory reset cause I have a feeling I'll screw something up and lose all of my apps and data. Is there any word about them doing another update that will fix these issues? If so, maybe I'll just wait it out.

    The Captivate is pretty much nearing end-of-life. I wouldn't expect another update.

    Ended up doing the factory reset. I didn't end up rooting, though. I didn't really have a lot of stuff I really cared about going back to default, and luckily, AndroZip has appbackup, so I didn't have to buy anything again. My phone works like new, so I guess it was worth it, more or less. Wish I didn't have to reset it, but it was better than the alternative. I plan on keeping this phone for a while, so I need to keep it working smoothly the best that I can. If it takes a factory reset or two to keep me from going crazy, then so be it.
