I am trying to upgrade the firmware of samsung galaxy S LCD using Samsung Kies. I am using the recent version of Kies. But during when I click start update it is showing that the FirmwareUpdate has stopped working. and it is showing preparing firmware upgrade components forever. Please advice me what to do.
Had same problem.
Open the App Drawer, tap on Settings > Storage, tap on Unmount SD card
Then you have to physically remove the SD card. Worked now!
I'm having the exact same problem and just received the following message from Samsung:
It's quite a number of possibilities being mentioned.
