SGH-T989D II satellite II firmware upgrades; HELP !


I have a Samsung SGH-T989D X Galaxy II. I can't seem to get it to work with Kies software so I can get Software/firmware updates. I hear this is a problem. Does anybody know about updates for this phone and how I can get them ?

Did you try logging onto the samsung website to do your update?
yeah I did. Went through their helpdesk chat line. No solutions. I don't even think the Satellite II does over the air upgrades unless I'm wrong.

No the S2 doesn't have OTA updates, it has to be done over KIES or flashing the update. Is the phone even connecting when you connect it through your PC's USB port? If not Try using a different USB port on your PC when trying to get it to connect to the KIES software you have loaded on your PC. Or try reloading the drivers needed to connect

Here's an alternative method for installing 4.1.2. Jellybean for the S2x. http://community.koodomobile.com/koodo/topics/installing_jellybean_4_1_2_when_samsung_kies_wont Odin version 3.07 works best. http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2189539
