    2) Used GTG's Ultimate Unbrick to go back to OFFICIAL stock KD5
    3) Plugged back into Kies and clicked update
    4) Waited for Kies to update the phone

    It's not complicated if you just follow what the people that have gotten it to work tell you. If you have the update on your phone from November UCKH1, then you can't update. USE GTG'S ULTIMATE UNBRICK TO REMOVE THAT UPDATE. Oh, and I'm on 64bit Win 7.
    If you do this, I assume it wipes out all of one's data and settings. Data is easily backed up and restored, but can settings be restored after a wipe and upgrade?

    SECONDLY: would the installation of GB wipe out all settings in any event, whether installed this way or in some yet-to-be-announced OTA upgrade?

    Thanks!

    Just do what i did i got this from the Infuse forum on AT&T and it worked.

    Samsung Infuse 4G

    I too had the problem that everyone is having with kies mini and Samsung support, but I found a fix and it does not require gtg unbrick to be use..



    Here is what I did:

    1.Download the .md5 file from this post xda-developers he captured it from kies mini. Download the file it will be called I997UCKL2-Homebinary.tar.md5 save it where you can find it like your desktop.



    If you have a Mac, then I guess that you could unzip it and flash it thru heimdall, not sure of how to do this as I don't have a mac



    2. Download and save Odin3 1.7 from here Anti Virus Software - David Star Enterprises v1.7.exe to your desktop



    3, When the .md5 file is done downloading it will be called I997UCKL2-Homebinary.tar.md5



    4. Run Odin, make sure infuse shows up as a com port. Load the upgrade, which will end in md5, into the PDA slot



    5.Place phone in download mode here is how you do this

    1.Once the files are selected put the phone in download mode. (Pull battery, replace battery, press and hold both volume buttons while plugging in the USB cable connected to the PC.)
    2.Once you see the device connected in ODIN, hit the Start button to begin the flashing process.
    3.Once the process completes, the phone will reboot.


    6. The phone think on the ATT splash screen that is normal with any update.



    7. Welcome to Gingerbread. you can verify this by seeing the icons at the top in the tray will be smaller (i.e battery, signal, network,)



    8. Go to menu-> About Phone -> Firmware verision will say 2.3.6(GB)

    Baseband Version will be I997UCKL2

    Kernel version will be 2.6.35.7-I997UCKL2-CL806505

    Build Number will be Gingerbreat.UCKL2



    9. Pass this around to every one you know that can't update their phones for kies mini including ATT rep they are lost on this as I had an encounter with one today where the samsung rep disconnected the chat with him well he was trying to help me.



    10. Be nice to ATT they have no control over this update this is Samsung problem written all over it.

    This is what I was told by samsung on the phone this afternoon. Samsung found a problem with GB and pulled it from the server. It doesn't matter whether you have the 5 or the 1 version. They are looking to have it fixed by Fri. The problem I find with this is that I recall reading of people upgrading this weekend which would not be possible if GB was pulled.

    Hello everyone,

    I have seen my other post from the ATT forum post here and it work so here are the new instructions

    I too had the problem that everyone is having with Kies mini saying my phone is unregistered and Samsung support not doing a thing to fix the issue., but I found a last night and it does not require gtg unbrick to be use or your phone to be rooted or any of the like. If you follow these steps you should be good, if you have problem plenty of us on this thread an help you out.

    Here is what I did:

    1.Download the .md5 file from here (this is the same file that jvanlew at XDA Devoplers found) I just made another download so it does not take up his bandwidth he gets all the credit for this find. This file has been captured from Kies mini so it is the official version of Gingerbread. Download the file it will be called I997UCKL2-Homebinary.tar.md5 and save it where you can find it again like your the desktop where all your icons are this will take some time about 10 to 20 mins depending on your Internet speed.

    If you have a Mac, then I guess that you could unzip it and flash it thru heimdall, not sure of how to do this as I don't have a mac, so if someone wants to try this and post how to do it with a mac great.

    2. Next Download and save Odin3 1.7 from here v1.7.exe and save it to your desktop this will be a quick download. Open Odin3 v1.7 up. Don't click anything in Odin till that md5 file is done downloading.

    3, When the .md5 file is done downloading it will be called I997UCKL2-Homebinary.tar.md5

    4. In Odin click PDA it will pop open a window browse to your desktop or where ever you save the file select it and click open.

    5. Do not click anything else in Odin leave everything the way it is.

    6. Place phone in download mode here is how you do this:
    Connect the usb cable that came with the infuse into your computer usb ports does not matter which ones you use.
    Power down the phone then remove the battery, put the battery back in, you will need two hands for this press and hold both volume buttons with your thumb, then plug in the USB cable that came with the phone in to the bottom of the phone.
    You will get a message on your screen that says Warning!!!
    A Custom OS can cause critical problems......
    a. Press Volume up to continue
    b. The screen will change to a yellow Triangle that says do not turn off Target!!!!
    c. Your phone is now in download mode.
    You will see the device connected in ODIN, and it should have the second row of box filled in as such 0:[COMxxx] your com port will change mine goes between 3 and 4 you may get com1 as long as it is in there that is all you need, it will be in yellow.
    Hit the Start button in Odin to begin the upgrade process the box above the com box will have stuff in it now not a whole lot to read there.
    In Odin there is box that says messages it should have the following
    <ID:0/004> Added!!
    <ID:0/004> Removed!!
    <OSM> Enter CS for MD5..
    <OSM> Check MD5.. Do not unplug the cable..
    <OSM> Please wait..
    <OSM> I997UCKL2-Homebinary.tar.md5 is valid.
    <OSM> Checking MD5 finished Successfully..
    <OSM> Leave CS..
    <OSM> All threads completed. (succeed 1 / failed 0)
    You also see a progress bar on the phone in blue if not then the update is not taking and you may get this
    <ID:0/004> Added!!
    <ID:0/004> Removed!!
    <OSM> Enter CS for MD5..
    <OSM> Check MD5.. Do not unplug the cable..
    <OSM> Please wait..
    <OSM> I997UCKL2-Homebinary.tar.md5 is valid.
    <OSM> Checking MD5 finished Successfully..
    <OSM> Leave CS..
    <OSM> All threads completed. (succeed 0 / failed 0)

    8 If you get this and no progress bar start over by removing the battery and the usb cable and try again to put the phone in to download mode.

    9. Once the process completes, the phone will reboot on its own

    10. The phone will think on the ATT splash screen for awhile about 2-3 min that is normal with any update on a phone

    11. Welcome to Gingerbread. you can verify this by seeing the icons at the top in the tray will be smaller (i.e battery, signal, network,)
    a. And by going to menu-> About Phone ->
    Firmware version will say 2.3.6(GB)
    Baseband Version will be I997UCKL2
    Kernel version will be 2.6.35.7-I997UCKL2-CL806505
    Build Number will be Gingerbread.UCKL2

    If you brick your phone you didn't follow the instructions.
