Hi,

I need some help im farily new to any sort of android dev or hacking my phone etc etc.. I am geting the following error after trying to update my phone to a leaked version of kitkat this happend months ago and i finally have time now to get this phone going.

I tried this : http://androidcentral.us/2013/09/how...issue-on-kies/

Keis did not reconize the phone.

I want to try this :
But i went to samsung-update and downloaded the latest firmware but its been downloading for 2 days. If this is the right path to go down the above instructions does anyone have a faster download link to the file I need?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Try going to sammobile.com and download the Kies software. The article you cite is from 2013 and I know the software has been updated since then. You should search in the Q&A section on how to update using Kies. (http://forum.xda-developers.com/galaxy-s4-sprint/help) Not sure if there will be anything there or not but you will not finding anything in this section about it. There are several ways to update to KitKat in that section. I have never really used Kies so I cannot help you with using the software itself.

You can't use kies, that is for official releases direct from Samsung. You need to download Odin, preferably 3.07 or 3.09 since you are installing Kit Kat. Download the NAE Stock Tar file from here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2663619 it is a fast download. Extract the tar file from the zip you downloaded. Open Odin with administration privileges and load the TAR file into the PDA slot (3.07) or AP slot (3.09). Place your phone in Download mode and connect it to your computer. Once the phone is recognized by odin click the start button and let it run. You can get Odin here: http://odindownload.com/
