    Hi All,

    I have recently debranded my Orange UK GS3 in the hope of getting the latest software updates that have been released, however i'm getting "no software updates are available" and I'm no longer able to connect to Kies.

    I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this and if this was normal after flashing your phone.

    My build number is now XXLF2.

    Thanks in advance!

    It does connect to Kies - however it says "Your device does not support upgrading via kies".

    Really not sure what to do as the reason i did this was to get the updates orange were not sending out!

    Unfortunately not...orange are really bad at handing out updates and also they removed the update option from the phone itself!

    Yeah i backed up the phone so I may just go back to that if this doesn't give me any benefit..

    no probs m8. i read somewhere else that u should put a stock unbranded rom on the s3 to get updates + not a custom rom if that helps
