hi ther.... im facing a problem... no clue if its the cell phone or my laptop or Kies... I downloaded and installed the latest version of Kies... When I launch the application a error message pops-up stating -  KiesPDLR has stopped working... OK fine... I clicked on Cancel and Kies application opened... O sorry, before opening Kies, I connected my Galaxy 3 and then opened the Kies application... :-) Kies was able to detect my Galaxy 3 and a message pops-up stating - A new firmware version is available. Updating may improve the performance of GT-I5801. Do u want to upgrade? (It also says about current and latest firmware version)... I clicked on Update and then a new window pops-up about Caution... I accepted it and clicked on upgrade... Then this annoying message comes up stating that firmware cannot be upgraded... Why??? I had to tell everything in detail because there is not one site that talks about a solution... Pls help... being trying to upgrade to froyo 2.2 for a long time now... Hoping to hear frm u as early as possible... Thanx... Ryan
