Hello,

Have any of you noticed yet that you are unable to check or download software updates if you have rooted? all you get is a the message in the attached picture.
I really, really do not want to download Kies, especially if there is no guarentee it will work. Do you know of another way of updating my rooted phone or hiding root from the software update application?

You have to use Kies or just download and flash the updates using ODIN if you are rooted.

I think you posted the wrong screenshot too...
