[Q] Kies won't offer latest firmware. Stuck w/ GB
So my dad and I both have the Samsung Galaxy S II LTE Skyrocket from Rogers; I727R. A couple days ago I updated mine via Kies from Gingerbread 2.3.5 to Jellybean 4.1.2. Today I tried updating his (also GB 2.3.5), but once I connect his device, Kies says it already has the latest firmware.
Is there a way around this? I explained my situation to Samsung Support over the phone and the representative's suggestion was that "even if someone had the exact same phone model and carrier, the update could be rolled out at different times." And I was advised to just wait. Hasn't Jellybean been out for a few months now?
I tried a hard reset on his phone and it still didn't offer any firmware updates. Can anyone help? Thanks.
