JF2 is an older firmware. JH1 is the newer one. Since it is newer, it should correct a few bugs in the older firmwares. What bugs, I don't know.
You could upgrade to JH1 though.
No new features have been added though and I have noticed only some minor changes.

Guys on windows Xp using kies can follow the guidelines posted below. I am on windows xp sp3 and have faced some terrible issues with kies. You might find these tips very helpful
1>Install the latest version of kies
2>If you are connecting your phone for the first time, then start kies and change the usb setting on ur phone to "ask on connecting" and then connect(once kies is fully loaded).
3>If you get an Mtp error or takes very long time to detect the device,then disconnect the phone and run driver recovery in kies under settings and then connect the phone and choose samsung kies in the pop up on phone.
4>if it still fails,then try USB debugging. I have never tried it,so you need to help yourself here
5>On windows xp you might have some issues downloading/installing apps, in which case you can disconnect the phone,download your favourite apps and then select all phones and go to my downloads and then connect the phone and install the apps(i.e when the install button turns orange).If you select just S8500,then you might run into issues.
6>The above settings work for broadband connection and I'd suggest you to connect to internet if you are using kies for app installation or firmware upgrades.

Please stop commenting like this. Go to 'Google', see what is firmware and what it does.
New waver, 25 Aug 2010Kies is known to not play well with the 64 bit version. :) Oh? Too bad then.

I had that 'Connecting to device' and 'MTP Device' error when I was in XP, but since I am using Windows 7 I never had any problem. If you connect the phone then it should show 'Installing driver' at Taskbar, click there to view the status that what is installing. If all the boxes ticked then you will have a 'Samsung Wave GT S8500' icon at the top right corner of Kies.
Hemant, 25 Aug 2010Guys,
Faced a strange situation with my wave a couple of days back. The phone just went dead... moreGood luck buddy. I really cant pin point what went wrong there, it sounds horrible though. I hope it gets fixed and doesn't post any problems.
Are you sure you don't have any kids in your home ? Something similar had once happened to my Nokia 6270. Loved that phone for its music quality (was the best until then), and was my first slider phone.
Turned out that one of my visiting niece had kind of dropped it in water and then they put it out in the sun to soak and kept it back in place. :-s I had no idea what had happened lol.
