Skyrocket firmware after update cannot be managed by Samsung KIES anymore
Over a month ago I recieved an over-the-air update for my Galexy S2 Skyrocket. Up to this point I was using KIES to update my phone. But since the over-the-air update, KIES cannot manage the firmware.
I even brought the phone to a Samsung service center on 2 different dates and wiped the phone and restarted.
On the second trip, the service tech used a non-public Samsung program called "SMART" and discovered that the current firmware of "PDA:LI3 / PHONE:LI3 / CSC:LI3 (ATT)" was not even listed as the current firmware within Samsung's firmware version repository for either SMART or KIES.
So, until AT&T submits this version of firmware to samsung and samsung lists it as supported firmware, KIES cannot manage the firmware for my Skyrocket.
However, I suppose it could still be true that they have not updated the Kies firmware data base. I am skeptical that this problem will be addressed before the release of Jelly Bean for the S2 and those of us with this problem will be left out in the cold.
