    I've used kies before im familure with it. I have attempted to root my device a couple times and was successful. But i tripped my flash counter so all i did was restore the back up i made before rooted. So that unroots me and puts me back to stock right? So now the ics update is here and whenever i plug in to kies it just says no firmware. Am i the only one? Could it take sometime for me to get it maybe? Help please. Thx

    In cases like these, for updates, I would just go back to completely stock. Don't do it piece meal. Do a full on wipe and get the regular version back on somehow. It's the fastest and cleanest way to go about the update I believe.

    I had to update to the most recent firmware before kies would recognize I was eligible for an upgrade. What version are you on now? Go into settings and see if you have an AT&T update available OTA (outside kies). If you do, download that first and then connect back with kies and see what you find.

    I apoligize. You had posted that image in your first post and I ignored it. I now see that you are already on 2.3.6.

    I guess you have checked to make sure kies has been updated to the latest version? When I first opened it up (it had been a month or so), it went through a pretty long update.

    Otherwise, I'm not really sure what to do. You might try the instructions set here to restart the whole process of getting back to stock firmware. The stock tar (step #2) on this page is one version behind 2.3.6 (2.3.4 or 2.3.5?), so you'll need to upgrade back to 2.3.6 via OTA to get kies to kick in.

    I wouldn't use the Tar from xda. I was having problems with that one I had to use the Tar file from Sammobile.com then click on firmware and then I searched for I727 and dowloaded that Tar file. It worked better for me and then automatically allowed me to download 2.3.6 OTA and then I plugged in to kies and then i was able to download the ICS through kies. Hope this helps following the instructions on xda worked exactly. good luck.

    I'm fully stock at 2.3.6 and I connect fine to kies, no firmware or any updates for me.
    Is it a regional thing? or do I have to wait for a OTA?

    That sucks man I had problems getting kies installed on my win 7 64 bit, kies is a pos piece of software if u ask me I'd maybe try restarting your PC just to eliminate that possibility and mybe try reinstalling kies
