    is downloading the software from net.. and then wen updating the version
    in phone it gets in to  an error and exits. then phone remains with the
    old froyo update.

  • Ryan Paul Joy P

    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

    I’ve updated my Galaxy5801 thru’ kies update. Everything looks good, but two of the froyo features are NOT working in galaxy 5801 (2.2) update,
    1. Live wallpaper not working
    2. Adobe flash player wont work in galaxy 5801, bcoz of ArmV6 processor.

    Additionally swype keypad also NOT working.

    Will Samsung give any other patch to fix LIVE Wall paper and swype keypad?

You need Odin downloader, goto http://www.samfirmware.com and download I5801DDJP2 firmware and You can install it. I also got my phone original model back I5801 which earlier after hacking the phone was showing as I5800. Hope this helps you all. Cheers!!!
