Exclamation [Q] Kies doesnt recognise my S3 Firmware

Hi

Ever since I have updated my S3 with Odin I am having trouble with Kies. I can not update with kies and when I connect my phone and go to update section it says "Your current Devices Firmware version is not supported to update firmware via Kies".

So I know what the crack is about that Product code and CSC have to match blah blah blah.

Soo what I would like to ask for is help finding firmware that will match my S3 so it will be up datable through kies again.

My S3 was bough in the UK in Phones4U and service provider is Vodafone. But it never was branded or bloated with Vodafone apps so I am guessing that I have had a BTU unbranded firmware and as I read on other forum Phones4U sell phones with UK BTU Firmware.

My current Firmware is PDA:MK6 / PHONE:MK6 / CSC MK6 (KOR) Baseband - I9300XXUGMK6 / BUILD - JSS15.I9300XXUGMK6/ KERNEL - 3.0.31-2168382 4.3 jellybean

Before I always downloaded UK BTU Firmwares and none of them were not supported with kies.

Also my binary count is 1 after downloading and flashing 4.2.2 which was supposed to be official but wasn't but I am not sure if it affects kies updates or not.

So what Firmware will be compatible with my S3 so its supported with kies? Please help and ask for any additional information about my phone if it will help.

use sammobile.com and flash chosen firmware for the UK via odin. After that check your csc.

Hi the info about my current CSC is from the KIES when i connect my phone to the PC. Does it mean that my phones CSC is Korean or that the Firmware I currently is Korean?

I bought my phone in he UK so i think it should be BTU shouldn't it ?

Also uglyjohnny I have downloaded kies3 but I still get the same message about my firmware but thank you for help.

Also I have use sammobile.com to download my firmware and it was UK firmware i downloaded every time.

Hi i had the same issue and here is how i fixed it

1. Flash the 4.3 UK BTU firmware from sammobile using ODN
2.Root your phone using cf autoroot - Instructions http://www.theandroidsoul.com/samsun...des-downloads/
3. Download CSC Changer from play store and change CSC on BTU
4.Download and install triangleaway app to reset flash counter - http://au.ibtimes.com/articles/49732...m#.Urj3D7Rn25h
5.Flash the 4.3 firmware again using ODIN
6.Now go into recovery mode and wipe cache and wipe factory data

Your phone will be unrooted and the CSC will match ( Credit goes to medi-927 who originally posted this guide)
