You know, that Kies actually needs to be installed (not running) because of the USB drivers? Or you could try these ones: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2038555

Are you sure Framaroot didn't work? It worked on my S running 2.3.6, notmsure why it wouldn't work for 2.3.3

As rasm said, Kies needs to be installed. Try install it then plug the phone in while its on. The drivers for connection SHOULD start installing...

Uhm, well I don't own my S anymore, but I always used Framaroot 1.5.1 and I used the... Aragorn exploit (I think)
