The original GS2 just got 2.3.6 OTA update. It is a 20MB download. Have fun.

Mainly bug fixes. Android OS is updated from 2.3.4 to 2.3.6.
If you rooted your phone and removed some bloatware, the OTA update likely will fail but will not brick your phone (like Captivate OTA did).

I checked for update and it said my phone is up to date. Still completely stock 2.3.4. Are they rolling this out to different regions at different times?

OTA updates are always roll out in stages. It's just your luck when you are eligible for update.

Great, but I think I'm gonna wait and see how it goes with a few of you first. I'm one of those who had my Captivate bricked by the OTA update last year!

I've tried and update failed because I rooted to remove some bloatware. But unlike Captivate, the update failed gracefully. So far for those with full stock ROM, I have yet to see any bad luck.
But your caution is well warranted, the recent Galaxy Tab 10.1 update bricked quite a few tabs (even fully stock ones).

I got the update to work by reflashing the stock UCKH7 firmware to restore bloatware (yeah, I removed it). After doing that, the update went through just fine.
The problem is that the update gives me a MAJOR phone call isue. Everyone says that I sound like I am "swimming" and randomly "dunking me head under water." I called several people from different places and they all say they hear the same issue. Now, I am gonna be honest and say that over the past few months, I have been flashing leaked ATT updates to my phone and ALL of them EXCEPT the stock UCKH7 have given me this annoying problem!!!!!
Should I contact ATT or something? And if so, then how do I do it without them giving me some B S answer like "Try performing a factory reset...." etc etc. I KNOW that the issue is the modem because I just flashed the UCKH7 modem (keeping the UCKK6 kernel) and now the problem has gone away! What I cant figure out though is why only SOME people (other forums), besides myself, are having the same problems as me.

I got mine (2.3.6 OTA) today. About 25 MB file, it was done in about 10 minutes. But the first thing I've noticed was that the spring scroll was removed. I'm greatly disappointed about it. I love spring scroll. It maybe because of the dispute between Apple and Samsung. But I want the previous version (with spring scroll-and-bounce). Anybody can help?

My phone downloaded the update. Now the battery will not last more that one day, and Bluetooth does not will not connect to head set. Nice update. Takes a good phone and mucks it up. Any advice on how to get this fixed?
