Hi Rose, If you scroll down there are several ways of upgrading; the most common being downloading the Samsung Kies program to your computer and plugging your phone into the computer with your provided USB cable. Hope that helps.

Do not use kies to update you samsung galaxy s2x t989D ! It caused my phone to corrupt and say "firmware upgrade enquired an issue. Please go to kies and try again", In the end we had to go pay and get it fixed. DO NOT USE JIES TO UPGRADE

Why is Kites telling me that it cannot update my phone because of the IT policies?
How do I get the update? Will it be sent OTA? You see: My SIIX has never been able to connect to Kies from day 1, always showing the error "Device not supported by Kies 2.0". And the "Check for Update" option is also missing on the Phone Status screen. It seems both of these problems have been mentioned before either here or elsewhere on-line. Any solution?

You will need to update Kies to the latest version. Here: http://www.samsung.com/ca/support/usefulsoftware/KIES/JSP Version number should look something like this: 2.5.3.13043_14. You can find the version information under Help > Kies Information. The S2x doesn't have the ability to upgrade over-the-air (OTA) which is why the Check for Update area is missing. However, with the new JellyBean upgrade, they've included that feature.

step one: draw a devil summoning circle step two: summon the devil. step three: offer up virgin blood or yoyr soul whichever you have handy. step four: ask him to fix kies or make it never exist. or you could root your phone. heres the link to another thread that helped me. https://c.getsatisfaction.com/koodo/topics/samsung_galaxy_s2x_shg_t989d_jelly_bean_update

Not sure by what you mean by 'went on' Kies. I'm assuming you connected your S2x via usb cable/computer, started Kies and received an error message? Just a quick note, you cannot use Kies Lite or Kies Air to perform the firmware upgrade. Feel free to include more information so that we can assist you further.

To update mine and get it to connect to kies. I had to back up and save all data through usb mass storage. the factory reset my devicebefore kies would connect

Kies in most cases will do all of that for you. However, I've run into many instances where the S2x simply will not connect to Kies. Glad to hear the update was a success and thank you for sharing this workaround.

you need to download updated kies software in your pc. www.samsung.com/ca/support/usefulsoftware.KIES/JSP#versioninfo select first option Kies and download it. then connet your s2x via cable and launch kies. it will automatically pop up firmware upgradation available. make sure your phone is 100% charged. it takes 15-20 minutes but it works 100%. i did it last night. best of luck.
Get the latest Samsung Kies it should detect your phone and tell you a new version is available.

I have upgraded to the latest Kies. I am using the USB cable I got with the phone. I have tried different USB ports. I have also done the phoneutil switch. NOTHING HAS WORKED. It's still "Device not supported by KIes 2.0"

As long as it's the Samsung Galaxy S2X (SGH-T989D) model it should. It could possibly be an issue with the drivers and the computer misrecognizing the phone. I'd suggest trying to follow the built-in troubleshooter, it ended up helping me when I had that issue (phone not even being seen by Kies on first use)

I plug in my phone to do the update and it always says that Kies is not responding when i start to download the firmware.
