A new approach!
Spoof the firmware version on the device, to trick Kies2.0.

But as you might understand, messing with system files is always dangerous and the possibility for a brick is always present. Hopefully this will not occur I'm doing my best to avoid that.

You should not use this app if you cannot get into Recovery and/or Download mode! (3 button combo) As always when you modifies system files!
Remember to disable any lagfix before updating!


For everyones safety I would recommend doing a manual backup of /system/build.prop and the complete /efs folder including nv_data.bin

The app does this automatically to the internal SDCARD, but just to be on the safe side I would recommend a manual backup to the computer aswell.

There is three steps where a reboot is required after step 2. The app will tell you what to do.

Step1.
Backup everything. If this fails, step2 is not available.

Step2.
Set the new ProductCode and PDA. Reboot!

Step3.
Set CSC and Phone. Do NOT reboot. Connect to Kies2.0 and update!
This setting is not permanent and will go back to previous setting after reboot.
Remember to disable any lagfix before updating!
Done!

-------------------------------------------------------------

How to Restore
Press restore in the menu. Reboot required.

If something fails, please send me your logcat.

So here it is: SpoofFw - requires ROOT and BusyBox


Online Market link

If you get problems to connect to Kies after you used this program, try remove the registry key "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Samsung\Kies\Devic eDB"

Please let me now if it works out for you.

Hi,

I'm new to the forum and am very interested in your work, at the moment the file to "fool " Kies 2.0 has not worked for me. I have the version 2.2 of Android 9000XWJPB/I9000FOPJP3/I9000XXJPP/I9000XWJPB and product code FOP. Sorry for my english, i'm from Spain.

It does'nt entirely work. Tried and it shows me update available.
But when it supposed to start downloading new rom, it say that latest software is already installed in my phone.Then Kies resets and start over offering update again.
So, I guess it detects the real rom in the phone.
Nice patch, though. Maybe you can see what is the problem.
Thanks

Same here - I just posted in the "original" theme about kies registry patcher.
Kies finds update, and when i start upgrading, the phone disconnects, and then after 1s reconects back. I cannot upgrade.

No panic:)
Obviously some can upgrade, some cannot. We are the first with this problem.
I have jpx. Could this cause problems?

HTH....

Running Kies 2.0.0.11014_49

HIDSWVER I9000XXJPO/I9000OXAJPO/I9000XXJPP/I9000XXJPO

Product Code GT-I9000HKDTMU

Model Name GT-I9000

Doesn't work unfortunately - it offers me an upgrade, appears to download the file then gives the Disconnected error.

I've also tried manually editing the registry as per kies 1.5 but no more luck.

I've tried on 2 PCs too.
