Download Samsung Kies on Mac OS X Mountain Lion 10.8

By Sidharth | Features

The video below explains how to force Samsung kies to work on Mac OS X 10.8. If you were not able to update Samsung kies on Mountain Lion using our previous method, this tutorial should definitely help.

  • Download Samsung Kies from here:
  • Open the downloaded Kies DMG file
  • Right click on the “kies20mac_s9218.pkg”, then open it with “The Unarchiver.”
  • You will notice “kies20mac_s9218? file name. Open this file.
  • Right click on the “contents.pkg”, and click “Show Package Contents.”
  • Double click “Payload.” This will create a new folder named “Payload 2 2.”
  • Double click on Payload 2 2.
  • Double click “Applications”, then you will notice a new Kies icon.
  • Drag Kies to the application folder.

That’s it! You have successfully installed Samsung Kies on your Mac computer — works on iMac, MacBook Pro and Air. Next time when you open Kies on OS X Mountain Lion, it will not only work flawlessly but also messages like “Connecting” will disappear when you connect your Android phone to Mac.

On the other hand, let’s just hope Samsung will update Kies to a whole new version that is compatible with the latest version of Mac OS X. When will they do that? Only time will tell.

I could not get my Samsung Galaxy Ace to connect to my iMac instead of messing around Googling this i phoned Samsung UK up,and the guy said it was compatible with the S2,S3, Galaxy Note,and Galaxy Note 2. I said are you sure he replied yep.

Excellent instructions. On my MAC Book Pro 10.6.8, the program was a simple drag and install.

However, the Kies program says the Samsung Infuse (ATT i997) is not a compatible device

Thanks sooooo much for this!! Had been looking and trying for hours… Now it’s working 🙂

Thx for the program, but can it be that the kies program isn’t working with the samsung galaxy x cover?
