Can't get the update to succeed. On Windows 7 and the latest Kies. The update keeps failing - after a long time - with a failure message saying my PC couldn't recognize my phone.

I downloaded Samsung Kies Air to my PC...connected my GS3 to my  PC....Kies recognized my device. Went to upgrade firmware. Itproceeded to download firmware upgrade components & when it finishes the program Kies closes after that's complete. It does nothing else after "downloading firmware upgrade components" What's going on?

You may be lucky. I finally got the update to succeed and have had network issues since. Before the update, my GS3 was getting 9,000+ Kb/s download speeds. After the update, the speeds are nothing more than 3G speeds of around 3,000 Kb/s.

 

I wish that I hadn't updated mine now. I suggest disconnecting yours and rebooting and leaving it as is with ICS till AT&T puts out an OTA official update.

Has anyone had any problems or noticed any bugs with the update or decreased speeds besides Marty_LK?

I tried to download it last night, I got the latest version of Kies and it was unable to update. I kept checking and it says I am up to date.. so I quit trying.. I hear there is a GPS bug on the update?

This update will not be available OTA.  It's either Kies or nothing.

Downloaded mine. The only problem I have had is I can't turn data on and off with the pull down screen it's no longer there. Other than that running like a champ.

Do troubleshoot and it will install drivers. Then try again that should take care of it

drunkmasta just give it a try again. I was successful the second time. I just connected my usb cable & hit firmware upgrade & it worked. It's quite the lengthy update. I've had the Jelly Bean update since Tuesday evening & haven't noticed or had any bugs or issues since I updated.
