Download Kies Mini to Update your Samsung Phone

Each time you want to make or apply an OS update, a tool which is stored and running in the phone’s internal system is searching for the upgrade and then is taking you through the installation procedure. We are talking of course about the official software releases and not about custom ROMs, or unofficial firmware. But, during the following lines I will show you how to download an app which will offer an update possibility apart from the classic OTA (Over The Air).

The tool is designed and developed by Samsung, for its devices, meaning that you can’t use the same on different handsets. It’s an official application, so don’t worry, you will not lose the warranty, or something like that, by using it. I am talking about Kies Mini (I will show you from where you can download it), a program which is coming with many features.

In order to take advantage and to receive the updates coming from Samsung, you should have the latest version of KIES Mini downloaded and installed on your phone. The tool is coming with drivers that will let you install and apply beta firmware, which otherwise can be flashed only by using Odin (another program developed by Samsung).

Remember that in case you already have Kies installed it is a good idea to check if there are updates available. Also, check for this each time you have the opportunity. Now in order to be able to download Kies Mini you should have access to a Windows / Linux / MAC running computer, to your phone and to its USB cord. Also, on the PC you must have available an USB port and don’t forget to temporarily uninstall Firewall, or other security programs from your computer and from the smartphone.

Then, all it is left to do is to get the actual tool. So, download Kies Mini from here and place the file to the computer. Then, you can copy the program on your phone and check for OS updates.

  • hater

    Lol the most unspecific instructions lmao. All it talked about was its origin, how about actually telling how it can be installed? Download Kies mini, place the file to the computer and then COPY THE PROGRAM on your phone? That doesn’t even make any sense lol

    • jose

    Please help! ? My SM-G920P (Samsung S6) is bricked. I instaled a featured theme from the phone (Red Metal) and everything was fine until the following morning. The next morning there were no signs of life. After charging for 4 hours still no signs of life. I have tried all combinations of down volume, home, power buttons for different second time frames and nothing. It will not reboot or anything with the different button options (home, down volume, power or both volume up and down pressed at the same time as power for 35 sedonds or more. Or all buttons pushed for 35 sedonds or more.) no variations do anything. I downloaded Odin and the firmware, but with not being able to get the phone to go into download mode I can’t get Odin to recognize the phone is connected. Please anybody share your ideas. Thank you.
