Kies Mini

Good news, everyone! After a bit of a false start yesterday, the Android 2.3.6 Gingerbread update for the Samsung Infuse 4G on AT&T is now available via the Kies Mini. Now the bad news: the Android 2.3.6 Gingerbread update (software version KL2) for the Samsung Infuse 4G on AT&T is now available via the Kies Mini. (See what we did there?)

Kies is notoriously one of the most tempermental update system there is, and that stigma hasn't been lessened with this latest update. A good number of you are seeing the same thing we are in the image above -- an unregistered device. That's no fun.

But at least the update is finally out there, and these things have a habit of sorting themselves out. Shame it's such a mess in the meantime.

Just downloaded this morning. Didn't loose anything and running fine. Everything looks basically the same other then a couple changes I see right away. We will see if the battery lasts longer as they claim.

Junk.. The Kies isn't working. What a joke.. I updated in November does that have anything to do with the fact Kies says I have an "unregistered device?"

Of course, you must run stock ROMs in order to show up as legit device.

My parents own this device (I have the S2 I was smart...lol). Anyways, if I remote log into their computer with their phones plugged in this should be seamless right? Most of my updates are through clockwork so I'm used to starting from scratch. This update (assuming nothing goes wrong) should keep everything else intact on the phone right (home screens, app data, etc.)??? Thanks.

I had the "Unregistered device" issue too and it appears to have something to do with the OTA update back in November 2011(update to UCKH1). I can confirm that flashing back to UCKD5 then attempting the update via Kies Mini does work. I used the GTG's Ultimate Unbrick method found at http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1116251

Now to find a way to root again...

Samsung has killed all download links for the Samsung Infuse on their site. They are working on a fix for customer who are having the "unrecognized device" issue on Samsung Kies Mini.

AT&T Cell Phones: How Do I Update My Infuse 4G (SGH-i997) Mobile Device to Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) Operating System?

We currently have put a hold on the update. Samsung and AT&T are aware of the issue with the Infuse 4G Update and are developing a fix.
