Before you update your phone using ODIN or root your phone, an obvious question comes to your mind "Whether I will be able to get Samsung official firmware updates Via Kies in Future?". Well its possible now. I don`t know how many of you used CheckFus Application which we have published sometimes back. There is one more simple App available from same developer Johan which can help you getting official Kies Updates even after rooting/ODIN/Custom firmwares. We have made a detailed Video Guide for our readers to do it without any mistake. Read on for more details.
