Ok, now I have a S4 and after setting everything up
just the way I want it i tried to do a backup. For some
reason it always hangs up on one of the backup
categories. I tried unchecking a few and it still hangs
on one. I finally only did about 5 or 6 things and it went through.
Got me baffled on this, any ideas??????
Have you read the "pinned" threads in the General section yet?
You never said what your firmware was or what your carrier is, but if it is AT&T and has MF3 firmware, KIES will not work for you at this time. You should do a lot of researching , reading, and learning, before you end up with a hard brick. Good luck.

Make sure you read and understand the "PINNED" threads in the "General" and "Q & A" sections of the AT&T S4 forum BEFORE you ask for help. Use the forum's "search" function to find posts with additional information. You should not expect others to help you if you haven't tried to help yourself first. Also, read, understand, and follow the "XDA" rules.
