Get the phone fixed so it will work again. I've seen folk lost months trying to get by with a broke part on a thing.
Yesterday, the well-mentioned Jelly Bean 4.1.2 update came out in the Netherlands for the GT-N7000 Galaxy Note. The only problem is that I haven't received anything yet, not an OTA update at all while I read messages that fellow countrymen did succeed to update their Galaxy Note. My Galaxy Note is SIM-lock free and it isn't bound to any contract.
That's why I turned to KIES which I have had problems with for months since I can't connect to it at all. The USB port of my phone is broken, so I have to connect to KIES with WIFI, but when I hope KIES or KIES Light, it doesn't say it's connected to my phone, but my phone says it's connected, or it would just stay forever on the loading screen before it would actually just won't connect.
As for KIES, I have reinstalled it for about 10 times now, just as 10 times restarted, I even removed the Micro-SD card out of my phone but neither that worked. I am not aware that there are any programs open which could affect the connected, nor I have any ROMS installed.
I have been searching for ages now, but nothing seemed to have worked for me, which is getting very frustrating now.
Does anyone have any ideas?
