Samsung Kies is a Phone Management Utility that let's Samsung smart phone owners manage their mobile device from their PC. It allows you to sync and store the data and contents of your mobile safely so that you can retrieve it a later whenever needed. Samsung Kies features the ability to view, edit and sync contacts, call logs, playlists, etc as well as allows you to copy files between PC and the device. However, this great utility has it's limitations and drawback. In the time when custom android roms are becoming popular and available at a large number for varieties of devices, this software only support stock Samsung firmwares. That is, It lacks the support for custom android firmware and thus, hinders the use of custom rom by normal users. However, with latest release of  Samsung Kies and Kies Air, it has now become possible to use Kies sync even if you have a custom rom installed on your handset.


This handy PC Suite for Samsung devices has also added the support for Wireless Synchronization with the release of version 2 and above. However, Kies Air, an application that lets Samsung handset owners to connect to Kies PC wirelessly, is officially released for high-end smartphones and only Samsung Galaxy S II I9001 handset is included in the list of supported devices. But, many developers around the open source communities easily found out the way to make it work on other devices too. The below presented is the modded version of this same software that will let you sync your device's content to your PC even if you have a custom firmware such as cyanogenmod or MIUI installed on your handset.
