Default Samsung Kies / updating to Gingerbread

I am having issues getting Kies to update my rooting and rommed phone to gingerbread. The reason I want stock gingerbread is because most of the ROMS out there now for cappy are sluggish and battery isn't good. Here are the things i've tried
1. Tried going back to stock with odin
2. Tried to download kies using united kingdom method
3. Download mode
4. Debugging mode

Every time I get "device cannot be upgraded" I have tried to search the forums and I have tried everything I see that is relevant. Still no go. Without an "official" stock gingerbread odin, this is pretty frustrating. I would love a Cognition build for gingerbread but have PM'd DG and got no response... So if someone knows a sure way to do this I would be grateful if you could share
Current Rom: Depends on the day

Past Roms:
Continuum 5.2
CyanogenMod7
Cognition 4.1.1
Twingerbread
Cognition 3x
Perception 10.4
Axura 2.5
Phoenix 5.2

According to this thread it looks like they've (temporarily?) pulled the gingerbread update. I'm hoping they fix the tetheringmanager force-close problem that it had.

I think you have the same problem I had with Kies Mini. Here is how I fixed it. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...ht=nv+data+bin

Some how, some time, some where along all my flashing my product ID changed from ATT and Kies Mini would not recognize my phone.
Phone: Nexus 5 stock 4.4 with ART
_____________

Tablet: Nexus 7 stock 4.4

_____________

Wife: Nexus 5 stock 4.4 / Kindle Fire otter CM 10.1.3 4.2.2

Isn't he referring to the Infuse when saying they pulled it down?

Just a reminder that your phone has to be fully charged before you start the updates. Kies detects your battery and will reject your updates. What screen are you making it to? Are you allowed to click for the update, then get rejected?

It turns out that my product code got changed, even though I was backing up my EFS folder. I managed to get my product code changed back and backed up that nv_data.bin file and all is working as it should now. Thanks for all the help
