    Friggin update system.

    It downloaded fine. Sat and waited. Said "Preparing for upgrade" then boom, I get the "Battery is Low, Recharge now..." message!! Hello ya stupid machine, the phone is PLUGGED INTO THE COMPUTER CHARGING. So now it just quits and won't proceed.
    It is best to charge your battery to 100% when flashing a rom or doing a firmware upgrade. That is the new basis the software will use for your battery calibration. Although you are charging your phone while updating, the charge generated by a USB port is not enough to sustain the phone during a high CPU usage when updating firmware. To prevent any damage to your phone, it is best to have it charged at least 40% to ensure it does not die while updating. YMMV

    Mine already download... i just have to wait... Because my batt is low... What do you think my batt level has to be before it lets me install it?
    Phone has to be a 50% or greater before Kies will allow the upgrade, which is ironic as today was the day that I decided to see how long my battery would last. I saw that the update was available and I have 16% battery, of course.

    Oddly you can't encourage a charger to work any faster, wishing doesn't make the electrons flow faster either...

    Once you install Kies and connect your phone there is a button on the main screen that says "Firmware Upgrade/Update." Press that and follow the instructions. Make sure your battery is fully charged before you begin.

    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.
    No still not seeing the update. Kies shows the phone is connected, but the section that shows Firmware Information has Current firmware version and nothing after it. I tried deleting kies again and reinstalled it, no luck. Plugged directly into the PC (Windows 7, 64) USB slot, tried multiple slots.

    Go to Help in Kies and update the program. Then hook your phone up and it will prompt you to upgrade.

    Mine auto detected the update. Took about a half hour from start tonfinish but worked. Seemed like it hung for a while a few times. Patience is not my fortay... Let it run and do its job.

    oh wow! Kies finished downloading the update & after it gets to 100% completed, it rebooted my phone automatically. Unfortunately, my phone is stuck at the "Downloading..." screen for over 15 minutes now. I went to their website to check out the file and it is huge. 738MB.
    Firmware archive | Samsung Updates

    I'll let the phone run for another 30 minutes and if the progress don't improve, I'll download the firmware to my SD card and install it from there.

    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!
    Figured i would give it one more try, and i got it. I completely deleted Kies from my Mac(i have lion). Reinstalled Kies, and got version 2.0.0.12113_6. Plugged in my phone, and BINGO, update available. Took about 30 minutes, and it's all good now. Was even able to sync everything on my phone w/Kies. I must have had an outdated version of Kies, or a corrupted copy. Never even took out my SD card, but it's working and all was restored.

    It should auto check for the latest firmware once your device is connected. Make sure you phone is properly connected to Kies.

    I just tried this update via Kies method and my AT&T GS3 is now fcuked!

    I am on JB, But now it's stuck in an endless loop. It boots, gets to the home screen then freezes and crashes and reboots again. And again. And again.

    I STRONGLY advise people to wait until the official AT&T update.

    Off to the AT&T store I go tomorrow. Hopefully they can help.

    Update worked. Turns out all I had to do was restart my phone BEFORE I did the update process. Once I did it all worked fine. Took at least an hour.
    All is well.
