Not as far as I am aware. I got a firmware update notification from the official KIES software. Kies software still says it needs an update. This is What it says.... <GT-I9000>'s Firmware can be upgraded, please click here to upgrade....
Current Version :PDA:JF3 /Phone :JF3
Latest Version: PDA:JFA /Phone:JFA
When you upgrade it just goes through the motions and then after completion you reconnect and it says the same thing again.
The phone functions normally but i just cant get or make calls because the IMEI is rejected by orange because its that default 0049 one that everyone else with this problem has.
