    Thanks for the quick response. I checked and my version of Kies is up to date. Also, my phone is checked as a "media device" and not a "camera". Any other suggestions?

    Does anyone have the Jelly Bean keyboard? Did AT&T remove that from the update too? I know there is a version on Google Play, but they are charging for the PRO version which should be included in the this update. What a disappointing upgrade, if you can even call this an upgrade.

    Well thats Bizarre lol. Try rebooting your phone maybe? I think someone else here mentioned that Kies didn't offer them an update right away also.. I recall them saying it eventually popped up after a while. Sorry I cant be more helpful. Good luck

    See if connecting via USB makes any difference

    Indeed. download the latest version for your operating system. Set it up and connect your device via USB and it should auto check for the latest firmware once Kies has recognized your device.

Very happy with this update love google now as well. Just wish i could set double tapping the home button go to Google now, did turn off the double tap for s voice thing though.
    Another quick way to access Google now would be to hold the Menu button and when the white screen pops up just say "Google" and google now will appear. :-)

    Air Kies will not work, you must have your phone connected to your computer with the USB cord.

    For whomever was asking..the double click to bring up Google Now can be done.

    This app:

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...hvcnRjdXQiXQ..

    Look at the app pics, make sure the last step when you close and it asks, you choose HOME2 as the default.

    Now, step #1

    For the Home>Home choose the App "Voice Search" and not the "Google" app if you want to double click the home button and the "speak now" option is up and you do not have to wake it up by saying "Google"

    Step 3, the HOME application will be TouchWiz or a Launcher if you are using one.

    Then the step, step 4 I talked about above, it's easy to miss if you aren't careful because you are used to telling it to use a launcher here, choose the "Home2" option after tapping close. That will now bring up the Google Now "voice searching option" when you double click. Also add the Voice Search app (the one with the mic picture) to your lock screen, which BTW, can now have 5 icons instead of 4.

    The memory card icon is a new feature to let you know where you pictures and videos will be stored. If you change the storage to phone memory a phone icon is displayed.

    Since there has been some confusion from people about Kies, the BIG problem that some people have(not just here on this thread) is that you need to be using Samsung Kies. Not Kies Air or something else. Samsung Kies is a really badly written app that is somewhat similar in function to Apple iTunes, but for Samsung devices. You can download it here:
    Kies - Sync Media, Contacts & Calendars Across All Devices | Samsung

    Kies itself has been known to have issues, but is the best, and to my knowledge only way to install the official JB update(you don't need to root or do anything fancy).

    So, get Kies, install it on your computer(must be an administrator account on Windows, not standard or limited user), and then plug your phone into the computer. You will see drivers get installed if you are on Windows. Once the drivers finish installing, Kies itself should now show you what firmware you have on your phone, and will now offer the update.

    Try a different USB cable, you may be using one with pins shorted for charging. That solved my problem.

    Kies work on Windows8; click HELP in Kies and make sure you have the latest version. I don't have any problems with Kies when connecting my GS3 or my wife's GTab2 7" Plus; I ony have problems with my GTab 10.1' with ICS. Go figure

    I was at work yesterday when this failed, I think it was a too slow of a connection.

    I tried at home on another Win 7 64, and the download,etc went much faster. It stopped and got stuck at 0% when it was downloading firmware on phone (Phone said do not disconnect...). After an hour, I killed the Kies process on the computer, (maybe re-started phone? can;t remember) and started Kies again, and successfully upgraded phone to 4.1.1.

    Lesson learned: Use a good data cable (some of my micro usb cables are only good for charging), and have a good data connection for downloading, otherwise it give strange behaviors...

Presuming the update goes as planned, will it remove the folders I've created in 4.0.1 or change any settings? I would hope all it will do is update the OS and leave everything as is especially since I'm running stock Touch Wiz, with no launchers, roots or ROMs. Thanks.
    Everything will stay as it is. I will tell you though, if you use "talk back", don't enable it after the upgrade. You will freeze your phone, BIG TIME.

    O.K., I tried using your method, but ran into a problem. My lock screen becomes disabled. Any thoughts on this?
    P.S. My lock screen becomes disabled when i shut off s-voice, whether i use your method or not.
