    Galaxy Gear Firmware tutorial plz

    Hi,

    I am trying to update my Galaxy Gear to the latest Tizen update but through my kies I cannot do it for some reason I was wondering if anyone has a tutorial video on how to do this manually without kies and on Mac Osx Mavericks.

    Many Thanks Lenny

    With a Mac, Kies is going to be the way to update.
    You need the correct Kies.

    Concentrate on trying to get Kies to work on your Mac, or run Mac in Windows and use PC Kies.

    What errors are you getting with your Mac and Kies?

    Is your device recognised when you connect it to Kies with the original charging cable?
    The model name appears in top left of Kies.

    If not, the USB drivers have not installed on your Mac.

    In the tutorial, there are 12 stages in the installation guide.
    Where is your installation stopping?

    You need Kies3.
    Check for updates to Kies before connecting your Gear.
    You could also try the Tools > Firmware Upgrade and initialization option.
