According to the information displayed on Kies I’ve: version PDA:JFF / PHONE:JF5 / CSC:JF7.

Does anyone knows how to overcome this situation? What is being validated by Kies?

I cannot upgrade 🙁
When I plug in my phone it comes up in kies and informing me there is a new firmware. I click on “Upgrade” it starts downloading the firmware. After it`s completed window is disappear and phone disappear from left top side of kies from the list. After that a popup window comes up saying “Plugin: ” and some characters.
See link below for screenshot.
I`ve done it many times and it`s always the same.
Phone is brand new no apps on it. It has been set back to factory set but still the same.

I`m using win 7 home 64bit. Newest Kies just downloaded from samsung website. Phone is locked to Three 3G UK.
I`ve tried to install xp on my pc but it crashes at beginning of installation. 🙁

Any ideas?

@Peter: have a similar problem, using Win XP – after downloading the software from Samsung the upgrade software crashes with some unhandled exception. Wrote to Samsung tech support about it, they told me to upgrade various system components (.NET framework, Java Runtime, Microsoft Windows Mobile Device Center) to latest versions. Didn’t have time yet to do it, you may try.

Hi.. finally I could upgrade..
I moved home recently and at first 3 weeks I have had no broadband at home. So I`ve used mobile broadband usb dongle during the upgrade. Firmware upgrade has crashed with a “Plugin” message (see my post above). So finally.. after home broadband installation I`ve given an another try for kies and it has done the job without error.
So ones with mobile broadband: get to a “internet cafe” and upgrade your device using wired broadband. 🙂
