The webversion of Check Fus 2.0
Now supports both Android and Bada OS!
Check for firmware updates for you Samsung device, e.g. I9000 Galaxy S, P1000 Tab, GT-I5800, GT-S8500 and should also work for other models if you provide the correct information.
To check for firmware updates on your Samsung Android device, use CheckFus found in the market by scanning or clicking this QR-code or search for 'Check Fus'.
The download a firmware, use Check Fus Downloader, the only working Firmware Checker, Downloader and Decrypter for Samsung firmwares to your desktop PC.

A long time have passed since the last message so it's time to give you all an update on what's going on.
Samsung have made changes to the authentication for their servers and that is the reasong why neither of my apps are working at the moment. With help from some friends over at XDA and from home I have managed to get passed the new authentication. Now I just have to implement it in the applications.
I started at a new job two weeks ago and that is the main reason why I havent had enough time to make the nessecary updates. The progress is ongoing but in a pretty slow pace unfortunately. But please have respect since this is all done on my spare time between work, study and family.
I'll let you know when things are up and running again.
Too much to do, too little time. I appologize for the slow updates on the Android app, but I have very limited of time at the moment. I'm about to start on my master thesis very soon and my daily job takes the rest of the time. Anyways, I realized that the download counter didnt work, so that is fixed now. :) If you are in need of old firmware files I recommend visiting my friends over at SamMobile.com to get those. They have a large archive of files that no longer is available on Samsungs's server. Over and out! Oh, and if you have trouble using CheckFus Downloader, you can find an excellent video guide here
As many of you probably have noticed, @SamKiesUpdates have begun tweeting firmwares found using TestMode in Kies. I will add ability to download TestMode, enable TestMode in Kies and the next version will also have a sorted list.
But what is TestMode? TestMode is a mode in Kies which enables you to install a not yet (but soon to be) released firmware and is only intended to be used by advanced users! Not for the regular user. As promised, here is the new version: Check Fus Downloader 2.1. v.2.1 - File version 188.8.131.52
* Added ability to download TestMode firmwares
* Let's you enable TestMode in Kies (Please report on XDA if it works)
* Sorted model list
I got some good news and a major update!
You no longer need FusCipherUtil.dll to use CheckFusDownloader! This makes it possible to port to other languages, such as platform independent Java :) I will start the port as soon as I can, but dont expect it to soon :)
* Bada support
* Not limited to the preset list anymore (Advanced tab)
* Decrypt a already downloaded firmware
* CRC check a already downloaded firmware
* Bug fixes and a lot of code clean up.
Consider a small donation to keep me motivated :)

Now also works for Bada Os!
I got even more news today! Now the web version finally works again! Unfortunaly not for Bada OS at the moment. In order to resolve that I have to get hold of a bada device.
May I present Check Fus Downloader! Download and decrypt the latest firmware from Samsungs servers. Link to download is here
To be able to decrypt the downloaded file you need to have "FusCipherUtil.dll" in the same folder as the downloader. This file can be found in your Kies installation directory. E.g "C:Program FilesSamsungKiesExternalFirmwareUpdate". Due to copyright I cannot link to that file.
