    Ive been working since noon (nearly 4 hours) and cant get kies working on any of my 3 computers. It took me 20 minutes to root nd flash ics on my captivate, so there must be better way

    Same issue here. I downloaded Odin V1.85 and the MD5 file from SamMobile but I honestly don't know how to proceed from there.

    I was having the same problem. My phone wouldnt be recognized after i did the ICS leak. so i dowloaded odin v1.85. Then I went to Sammobile and downloaded the original 2.3.5 tar file (make sure its the ATT not the Rogers version. Went through odin. Once it was complete then i let the phone set its self up. Then I upgraded to 2.3.6 over the air. Then I plugged into Kies and that's how I managed to upgrade. I really hope this works or you have already figured it out.

    If you are running a 64-bit machine, you might not ever get Kies to recognize your phone.

    I have a 64 bit machine and I had no issues. The problem is when you try and upgrade from original 2.3.5. You have to be in 2.3.6 for it to work.

    I cant get the dang kies application to work, my phone is recognised but then the app neeed to update and it doesnt actually update, infinitly looping trying to update, so on one computer I tried removing kies which is nearly impossible because even with all the work ive done when I try to install the,new one it acts as if the old one is still there and endlessly loops. One computer is vista 64 the other vista 32, might get a chance to try on 7 computer wednesday

    Mine upgraded fine from stock 2.3.5, it wouldnt do it from 2.3.6.
    Also you must be stock 100%. It wont upgrade from a leak. And if windows 7 64b gives you problems, you can run kies as administrator. I did not have any issues with my pc running W7 64bit.

    64-bit or 32-bit of any Windows OS doesn't have any affect on the upgrade process. Kies is a feisty program that has a mind of it's own.

    I had 2.3.6 and it wouldn't work for me on 64-bits. Go figure.

    I finally got it to work on my daughters 32 bit win PC. I tried 2 different win 7 64 bit machines and a Mac with no luck.

    If you go to xda-developers.com they have a step by step instruction on how to do it. Hope this link works and its on about page 4. 4.0.4 is out! - xda-developers

    I was able to finally get Kies to do the upgrade, but the above will work just as good and some claim even easier. Good Luck.

    I couldn't get it to work on a 32-bit XP machine or 64-bit WIn7 Machine. But Odin worked fine. Now running 4.0.4. I'm less impressed with the Launchers. They seem laggy. I'm using Apex, might try Nova. Does GoLauncher work with ICS?
