    firmware upload problem

    I'm having problems uploading the firmware. It always stops at 60% and doesn't move past that spot. There isn't an error message. I tried to restart it a couple times.

    Any suggestions?

    I may have to take it in to a Verizon store otherwise.

    On that link you sent me, the last option is all in chinese or something. It's the firmware option. I didn't download the driver before. It was going for about 25 min and it would get to the 60% fast, but then stop and not move.

    sorry about the link. go to vzw site or www.samsungmobile.com
    you should be able to get it there. you have to install the driver first. after you do that, reboot your computer.
    let me know how you do

    I'm having problems finding it. The phone did boot up, but the phone itself does not work, meaning the phone function does not turn on.

    Well I guess I won't do that again. My phone was under warranty and they replaced it. The store I was at didn't have the stuff they needed to flash the phone with. I would like the update, but I'll have someone from another Verizon store do it for me.

    ya...you have to have the drivers first. after that the sofrware does the rest. sorry about that. i thought i bricked mine. i ended up reflashing and then flashing over a custom rom with 6.5.
    i love it more than ever now.

    I got the update completed this weekend. So what are the main differences or changes I should notice or be looking for? I noticed a couple new programs, customize the widget bar and easy settings. I never used google maps because it wouldn't work.

    you now have gps. that doesnt mean only google maps. i have Bing, Gmaps, and Amaze...all free. some of the screens are a bit different. i really cant say because i am running a custom rom and only saw the updated rom for a min or less. the only part i have is the cf03 base. i guess the big deal is the open gps. that was major for most people.
