Hey guys, first of all thanks for all the help so far. You folks make beeing the new guy comfortable. Now for today's questions. I keep seeing all these threads about problems with upgrades of firmware, upgrades on kies, and they all mention one problem or another. I have an s2 19100 and every time I connect to my pc with a usb cord I get told that kies updates are available and would I like to upgrade (my kies is 22.214.171.12454-20) and i'm being offered version 126.96.36.19964-9 which I always refuse because of what I see on this forum. So far I have just used kies to transfer videos back and forth from my pc to S2 and my old version of kies seems to work just fine.
I need to know from you pro dudes is how does the upgrade balance against all the problems that seem to be happening to people. Also when I boot up my pc, i get a message saying "firmware for the 19100 has finished downloading, check which model you use (I thought 19100 was the model) and upgrade" so I must have started an ugrade before and then copped out of doing the installation of the upgrade. I guess I need to know what good this upgrade will do me and what it is.
Another whole different question. I understand now I can upgrade to ice cream sandwich. I assume that is separate and different than the kies upgrades I'm being asked to accept? And last but not least what is "Odin"
As you can see people I am really really flying blind here. So simple explanations work best with my limited knowledge.
Thanks as always for your kind assistance, revdoc
