Your right, it now says phone not supported!

My first attempt eventually downloaded the update and I guess it must have started to upload the update to my phone but after 27% it just hang there for over 1 hour doing nothing. The screen on my phone was flashing red with the words "ALL DOWNLOAD" written in bold white letters.

I had to disconnect my phone because I had to use it and hoped that it was not corrupted. It seemed to work fine and showed the initial firmware.

I am trying to see if the update will work again and will keep you posted on the results. So far its been 'loading the update files' for about 15 minutes and is only at 12%

Ok heres how i did it. I had the same problem as you to start with.

Got to 27% and it hung, but it did prompt me to install the usb drivers at this stage. So i downloaded from samsung site and reinstalled. Came out of program which prompted me to it being a failed update. Then did the recovery as the install had frozen (keeping fingers on 4 and 7 and powering up with the usb cable connected). Then the screen displayed ALL DOWNLOAD again. Run the update again and it worked.

Still cannot see what has changed, but will update with Samsungs reply on Monday.

I pulled the plug and it was fine.

Incidently the date of the firmware is 19/9/08. How weird!!!!?!??

When mine was flashing red, I took the battery out and it did not seem to hurt it.

I backed up all my data beforehand and I figured that if everything went bottoms up I would be straight back to Carphone Warehouse for a replacement.

It took me an hour to get to about 70% the second time so I just gave up.

I have pretty good broadband too so its obviously something at samsung end that's slow

Have installed latest version but it keeps telling that my phone isn't connected even though PC Studio shows it as connected.
Strange.

success

I have just downloaded the update with the usual 27% failure, I just pressed 4 and 7 and inserted usb cable then powered on, next thing success i now have the 07/10/2008 i8510xxhj3 upgrade on the phone. There seems to be no real upgrade...yet, the camera is still slow and lags incredibly, and I still cannot take a good photo. Another few days of this and I think i will be giving this back to carphone.

How long have you had the phone? I have had mine 2 months. I did speak to someone at samsung about a month ago and he said it was a Symbian problem and the N96 was having the same problems. However, the N96 has had updates, but then again Nokia own Symbian, so i guess they will repair their phones first. An update is likely in the Spring
