Just completed the update and everything seems to work fine. Including the lights at the bottom. The only things I don't like is the loss of the wallpaper scrolling and the loss of the lockscreen picture swiping off. Hopefully Samsung/ATT will fix these 2 issues.

Look at all the faux accounts made by the AT&T PR team trying to spin the 2.3.6 update as something positive, what a laugh. This update BROKE more things than it fixed. Did AT&T even test this "update" before releasing it?

I'm not a faux account and th update installed perfectly. If I have a complaint, it's the delay in a 4.0 release. I didn't really see the point to this one though. There are some UI changes but no noticeable difference anywhere else.

I appreciate your participation on this board. I add my voice to those who have noticed the menu, home, back and search keys will not stay backlit since the new update. I hope this is fast-tracked for a quick fix.

The Samsung Galaxy SII Skyrocket is the milestone of smartphone world. But it is very odd that still it has not the ICS OS??

Repeatedly unsuccessful update. ATT finally transferred me to the Samsung support center directly. Samsung informed me that the carrier should have advised me that the update had been made unavailable since some i727 devices were not successfully downloading and installing the 2.3.6 update.

Update ran without any hitches on my phone, like others was surprised to see the notification, then disappointed to see what it turned out to be.

Hi. I did the OTA update on my Skyrocket and it installed fine, and everything seemed to be running smoothly.
Then I noticed that certain apps were not finding all previous data. Gallery is not finding all photos that previously appeared in the Gallery (photos I had taken with the phone and that I had downloaded), and a third party app (DejanNotes) that had lots of Memos and Contacts is empty (no data at all.)
It seems after going to 2.3.6 it is not reading the SD Card or the external memory the same way. I thought I saw a message about USB storage at some point, but I have not plugged it in to a computer in a while.
Why happened and can I get all my data back easily or do I need to go to back ups?
Fortunately, the stock Calendar and Contacts are fine with my data.
Thank you, Rocketman

When I tried this update in February, the update bricked my Samsung Skyrocket. I had to get a replacement phone from AT&T. This time, I will NOT update as many people have posted that this update has only minor changes and is not necessary. Upon receiving the notification, I went into Settings->Applications->All Applications->Device Management->Clear Data. By clearing data on the Device Management app, it stopped the nag screen for the update and cleared the notification.
AT&T should stop pushing non-crucial updates on its users. The last update only allowed 3 postponements (you cannot decline the update) and then it updated the phone automatically making my phone unusable with a white screen of death. There is no clear way to stop the update.

Samsung Galaxy SII Skyrocket is from AT&T only. So why does this att smartphone's OS can't be updated frm anywhere in this world !! Over the Air or Kies on the other hand in U.S.A. or other places in this world that's should not be a concern. This is logical and technical and user friendly way
