Have not received the update message on my phone about to try attempt number 2 with the Kies software

First try it set my phone in Odin mode and then my PC lost contact with my phone.. so it just stood there... Pulled the battery and phone restarted fine.

Time to try again.


Edit: Just updated .. worked without a problem.. I did lose my root status.. but.. it still kept the tethering manager from running so hotspot still works. :)

I updated to 2.3.6 via Samsung Kies. Work the first time just took awhile. I do not like that the update does not allow one to widened the pictures in the gallery to set the wallpaper, other than that little annoyance it is all good.:cool:

Ok i'm glad i found this thread. My phones been pissing me off lately and tmobile said the new update would fix it. Installed samsung kies, but it wont connect through usb. It'll connect just fine through wifi, but wont give me the firmware update prompt. Just gives me the options to look at all my stuff on the phone and thats it. I have the latest usb drivers installed on my pc.
If i open kies on the computer with the wifi on my phone off, then plug in the usb, it still doesn't see that it's plugged in. Someone help. I need my phone for work and it's really really annoying how it freezes up all the damn time.

Edit: ok i think i got it working. Wrong usb cord. Who knew an LG mini-b cable don't work for it. It'll charge it but that's it. Thanks guys for the info.

How long does it take? it's been at this screen for a half hour now..... nothing's changing.

I tried CM9 and it is nice but I would love to have use of my camera sometimes. That being said I am now using Xquizhit Custom rom. It is great as well. I have tried Rebel Rom but the update icon keeps telling me there is an OTA update but unable to download it OTA, it is annoying other than that a great custom rom as well. They are all really good but Zquizhit is my favor and everything is working:-*

I'm finding not insignificant improvement in battery life after this update. Things feel smoother all around. My Kindle app, which had been broken, now works perfectly.

I'm quite a happy camper at the moment. :D

Besides what I mentioned above there were minor interface and other tweaks which I do not recall but, everything tightened up and became snappier all around.

Can someone PLEASE install voodoo report via the Google Play and submit the report so @supercurio can make a working solution for the Wolfson audio built into this phone via voodoo sound? I have tried sending one with the stock rom and with rebel and both crash on me. I am graciously asking anyone and everyone to try to send that report. It's a VERY simple process.

Thanks SO much in advance!

I tried. I can't get anyone to run this program. I've installed two different roms now on this phone including trying to run the voodoo report app on the stock rom and it force closes each time. All I need is someone to install the voodoo report app. it will automatically send a report over to supercurio so he can take a look at the hardware to be able to include voodoo sound on his next release.

I tried it myself it also crashes but it did it after a bunch of details spammed my notification bar. I was also able to send an email right after that so not sure what he received.
