Hi, I'm trying to upgrade my SGT, and I've tried several times, getting more and more frustrated each time.. At first I had problems with Kies finding my device, but after that was sorted out by using a diffrent PC, a new problem appeared. It starts the firmware upgrade, downloads OK, but then the screen on my tab shows a yellow sign with an android-worker, and after a while Kies gieves the following message: failed to convert to upgrade mode. Try again later.

Anyone had the same problem, or know what to do? I've even tried a factory reset, but that didn't work either, so now I have to re-download all my apps as well!!

As I said I couldn't get it to work at home, Kies didn't find the tab. But last night I tried formatting my laptop, and reinstalled Samsung Kies, and PRESTO! Kies found my device, and the firmware-upgrade worked like a charm :) Don't know how or why it worked, but it did, in my case anyway :)
