Downloaded a 217mb update over wifi this morning ('stability improvements' apparently), but during the install process it said something about a 'checksum fail', then booted back up and said 'firmware update failed'.
Phone still works thankfully, what update is this? Worth me trying again?
if the firmware was available to download from a site (hint hint)
you could use a program called odin to upload it to your phone
it's not jelly bean as I have defaulted to the samsung default firmware because of a error with this download not virgins customized I should have
not really any difference though apart from the my account shortcuts missing and a default samsung startup screen
is virgins default firmware for the galaxy ace plus available to download anywhere ?
There is a site you can download Samsung firmwares from and the latest version available for the Ace Plus is 2.3.6 (PDA S7500XXLK1, CSC S7500VIRLK1) if your phones are Virgin branded or for non branded phones it's version 2.3.6 (PDA S7500XXLH3, CSC S7500BTULH1). Dial *#1234# into your phones dial pad to find what version you have. Have you tried updating via Kies rather than OTA?
the problem is the latest versiuon of kies or the last few are reporting that phone not supported not jusr for this model but other models as well so that's no good and as the version of kies on the phone does everything but fiormware updates you are really rather stuck
The other day a message came up on my phone (Galaxy ace plus) asking if I would like to upgrade the software. So I said yes. Plugged it in made sure the the wireless was connected. Left it to it. After half an hour the software was downloaded. I set it to update. Halfway through it froze. I told it to wait rather than force close (About three times )
Then as it was not doing anything I can cancelled it. Switched off and back on. It went through the process of reverting back ok. So no damage done. Then it came up with the message about updateing again so said yes again. This time rather than freezeng it went through the whole process than said it had failed. I made sure the phone was Ok and left it.
The next night I tried again now It says there is no update available !!
And does anyone know what might be causeing it to fail ?
Kies does not work for me as it says "not supported alert" message. (Windows 8 64bit)
