  1. I am here from Sweden and I couldn’t wait for Kies to upgrade my phone to Jelly bean with Kies, so I upgraded my phone to Jelly bean with Odin OTA which is released for Poland and its working perfectly, but now the problem is that if i connect my phone to KIES on my laptop so it gives me a message that “Your device does not support software upgrading via Kies”. So please let me know if there is any solution so that I can still connect my phone with KIES software. thanks
