    Latest version of Kies for Mac(Lion) doesn't work. I'll wait for the OTA from AT&T.
    Hrmm I downloaded Kies earlier for the first time for Mountain Lion, and then downloaded the update to Kies from there without a hitch. Once my SIII was connected to my MacBook Pro Kies immediately detected that there was an update for my phone, and within 30 minutes, I am happy to report that I now have JELLY BEAN!!! This is an awesome update, and worth the wait, and all of my complaining!!! Here's to hoping Verizon is next!

    Not seeing an update via kies. Updated kies, no change. Uninstalled kies, downloaded from keis website, no change. Used 2 different Samsung USB cables, no change. Anything else to try?

    I'm pretty sure the cable has nothing to do with it as I used the cable that came with my HP TouchPad. As soon as I installed Kies for Mac, and rebooted my MacBook Pro, then reloaded Kies. It said there was an update for Kies. Once Kies was updated, I plugged in my SIII and immediately was notified of the Jelly Bean 4.1 update. As a Mac user I was worried this would be a mess, but the upgrade experience was effortless.

    Are you running Windows or Mac? I did a quick search on Bing(just kidding I used Google) for "Kies for Mac" downloaded from the Samsung site, plugged my S3 into my MacBook Pro, and let Kies tell me there was an update. Really easy to do honestly, even as a Mac user.

    Will a Kies backup on ICS and restore after the update to JB work? I want to back up texts, E-mail settings and ringtone preferences.

    If your phone is plugged in, and being charged I don't think it matters.

    So it was downloading but it just randomly quit downloading or what? What do you mean by "no go"?

    If you are having trouble with Kies recognizing your phone, try a different or standard, i.e. "non-charging" USB cable. I switched cables and the update popped right in. Nice. Thanks all for the heads up to go get it.

    Did kies ever connect to your phone?

    Are you using a USB hub? If so, hook the cable directly into one of the PC slots.
