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.

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.

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.

I got the "you already have the latest firmware" for 4.0.4 message too, but it turned out there was a Kies update. I think it's in Kies>Tools - try checking the app for an update and if it finds one, install, reboot and try again. This worked for me.

All of you that are wishing, hoping, praying for this crappy bloatware laiden update - go to the XDA forums (search google, not sure if I can post links here or not).  Root your phone (not illegal) permanently, and flash a custom Jellybean rom to it.  Viper XL is a GREAT rom that is based off of the Rogers (ATT Canada, basically) version of Jellybean.  It works GREAT!  Plus, once you root the phone, you can continue to install new roms, and keep it up to date, since AT&T has decided to dump support for this phone.  I just got fed up and did it, an and was surprised at how easy it is to do.  If any updates come out, I'm sure they'll block the exploit that is available to root the phone, thus preventing you from ever updating the Android OS once support for it ends (which probably has happened already, all thing considered, lol).  Good luck!
