Ok so im assuming then that i am doing the process wrong by going through settings>software update to check for the update?
Cause every time I choose the option it keeps saying 'No Firmware"
Do I need to use this Kies thing to do the update?
And is it an app for the device or a program for a computer?
I think going through to phone to search for updates is for OTA updates, and so from what i read its only available through kies at the moment.
To get the update now, you have to use Kies Mini. Its a program for the computer. Search XDA-developers for a direct link to download it. Once downloaded, open it, then on your phone go to setting>applications>usb settings and put ask on connection, you could just put kies but idk, i put ask on connection lol. Then Kies will read your phone, tell you theres an update and you can choose to update or not.
I see, thank you very much for your help, it'll be a while until i get access to a computer that i can make this happen with. Was hoping that it would be done directly through the device, but i guess not.
If anyone knows of a way to do it straight through the device, please let me know.
Have other vibrant updates been done through kies? Seems kind of strange, I bet most users will never even know this is available.
All of the Samsung Froyo updates here in Canada went through Kies. The diffrence here is that I don't have to be personally notified that there is an update. Samsung just posted on their website that froyo is available for all of Telus users( they then announced that Froyo is avaible for Bell "" Rogers ""). All I did was to open kies and plug in my phone-installed the 2.2.
Kies is tempermental - try reconnecting the device. Also, make sure that you have the option set under "what would you like to do under USB connect" to "choose" so you can pick the "Keis" option there - I had to connect and reconnect several times this morning to get it to recognize my phone.
