I posted some information including links related to the leaked ROMS, but it appears to be a verbotten topic (Ve haff vays to make you like our ROMS).  Best to go to XDA for information.

Download worked great.  After rebooting phone, it seems that bluetooth connectivity issues with connection to car phone in Jaguar XJ were fixed. No other problems noted up to now.

I completed the 2.3.6 update successfully on my Skyrocket.  Now the 4 touch keys at the bottom (menu, home, back and search) do not light up when I turn the phone on (unlock it).  I have them set to be always on and I checked that setting and it is still set to always on.  If I uncheck always on, check always off, then recheck always on the keys light up and stay lit until I turn the phone off.  When I turn the phone back on those keys remain dark until I repeat the process.  I have tried completely powering down the phone and restarting it with the same results. 

Any suggestions?

I have the Same Problem with the menu buttons.  I am quite surprised and disappointed that AT&T and Samsung would allow an update with such an obvious issue out to the public.  I was on the phone with tech support for both Samsung and AT&T and they appear to be unable to fix the problem with out resetting the phone, which is not an option, (especially if there is no guarantee that the the reset would work).  I would expect that a patch or something will be on the way as the lack of illumination of the main menu buttons could possibly pose a safety issue.

Thanks for details on the Skyrocket 2.3.6 upgrade.  I have no issues with phone operation except for the wallpaper movement on home screens.  It no longer moves horizontally as it did before the upgrade.  I also notice that while the Settings / Display still shows Gyroscope calibration, there no longer is a calibration for Horizontal movement.  This must effect the wallpaper movement.  Is there a solution forthcoming?  Thank you.

Update:  As a workaround, the setting for 6 seconds on does work and I am using that for now.  Would still like to get this reported as a bug in the software update.  Thanks.

Why would I want this update?  WHat are you thinking AT&T?   20 MB download and it isn't even ICS?   Get with the program and get the ICS update out ?   WHy are you so lagging in everything?   Do you want Verizon to beat you out in everything?

 

WHEN IS THE ICS UPDATE COMING OUT FOR OUR PHONES?

Guys, scrolling wallpapers are not a big deal, you can get this functionality back by just installing another launcher. There more than a few, personally, I use Go Launcher (open the Play Store aka Google Market and search for Go Launcher Ex) which is free but there are others (I also like ADW Launcher but it is I believe $2). After you have installed another launcher, hit your home button and select the new launcher that you just installed. if you want to use this launcher by default so that it doesnt ask you every time you hit the home button, hit the Home button and tick the 'use launcher by default' checkbox. Another nice feature of Go Launcher is the ability to hide apps you dont use (ie. bloatware). After you have Go Launcher installed, go into your app drawer and hit the menu button on the phone, select hide apps, just tick the apps you want to hide. While not as nice as just removing these apps altogether, it works for me. I hardly even remember having any bloatware installed because I have them hidden. One little disclaimer, Im a proud owner of a Samsung Note, I personally dont have a Galaxy S2 but my sister and mother do.

One more thing I forgot to mention, if you are having any troubles installing the update or it makes the phone run poorly after the update has been installed (which might include buggy or sluggish), backup everything on your phone (pictures, movies, contacts - make sure they are syncd current with google or whoever you are syncing with, etc.) and do a factory reset (Settings->Privacy->Factory Reset). During this process, the phone will reboot I believe twice. Once it boots back into Android, setup your wifi (Settings->Wifi) and then check for updates (unless you already installed the update previously, factory resetting does not revert the firmware to older versions, it just clears data and caches off the phone making it as if you bought a new phone with the update already installed), the update should install without any problems. Be warned, a factory reset erases anything custom you may have put on the phone which includes apps (so things like games will no longer be installed and any save data like saved games will be erased). Phone manufacturers try to make these updates so they dont have to erase everything, sometimes, it doesnt go as planned. A factory reset usually fixes any wonkiness that firmware updates bring. While this is not the update everyone has been waiting for, it is a significant one, bringing the Skywocket in line with the latest version of Gingerbread - this brings 2 security fixes that I am aware of that Google has addressed. While ATT can be blamed for untimely releases, they should get a little credit for at least bringing out an update. My Note still has recd nothing, my Captivate (now nearly 3 years old) recd only 3 updates during its entire life.

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.

Jamileh,

 

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.

 

Thanks,

 

Dan

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

This update is crap. My battery gets drained much faster now after update. 1 HR unplugged and battery is down to 79% with moderate use.

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
