http://forums.androidcentral.com – Hey guys, I'm new here & apologize for posting a question that I'm sure you've seen numerous times but I need some help. I'm attempting to upgrade my Samsung Galaxy epic 4g touch using Kies. I keep receiving the infinite update loop. After a couple of hours reading on different forums I decided to come here. I'm on a Mac 10.5.8 if that has anything to do with the problem. I've downloaded kies version,my device is not rooted. Looking forward to any suggestions! I attempted to re download it, now I can't connect to kies. This software is a hassle. (HowTos)
