Just got a Device Management message that a software update for my Skyrocket was available from AT&T, and it automatically connected and started downloading the 20 megs or so. It went throught the installation process, but as the progress bar got to 75% or so, the screen went dark and the phone rebooted, showing an error message "Install interrupted. The software update could not be installed at this time." So I went into Settings/Software Update, clicked on Check For Updates, and it again went through the same download & install process, with the same error result. I tried again, and this time it told me that my software was up to date, and that I could check again in about 24 hours. I am still running Android v2.3.5.
Anyone out there have any idea what this update is for, and why it won't install? Thanks.

I cannot see any other differences yet.
The incoming call screen uses the same (new) round buttons as the unlock screen.
Also 2.3.6 is supposed to include a fix to the voice search. I double checked the settings and it seems that I now have the choice between vlingo and google, which I don't recall having before the update.

This is what Samsung tech support said:
There is an issue with the update.
The FOTA update for EMR1(KK1) has been stopped by AT&T and could resume at a later date.
The update was delivered to approximately 31,000 devices.
Once the update is official again, it will be posted on the Samsung website or you will get notification on the phone.

that's old news. They pulled 2.3.6 a while back for this reason. But this new update seems to be the corrected version of 2.3.6 that they pulled after 31,000 downloaded it a few months back

How did you get it to install? Did you do it over the air? Did you have 2.3.5 or 2.3.6 installed?
It is installing on mine right now (84% and climbing).
99% <long pause>
100% "update is OK"
Nothing new on the boot screen. Though it does take much longer once the logo has been drawn and "rethink possible" is etched on the screen. Normally, I'm only at this screen for a second or two. It was at least a minute or more.
- The unlock screen is different. It now shows a concentric circle with a padlock when I touch it telling me to swipe to unlock.
- The device management page is up when I unlock. All it says is, "Installation completed. The software has been successfully installed. Your phone is now ready to use."
- Build number is not Gingerbread.ucla3 (I do not recall what it was before.)
- Android Version 2.3.6
- Kernel 184.108.40.206
I cannot see any other differences yet.

I'm on 2.3.5. OK, finally got the update downloaded. But when it rebooted it went into CWM !?! LOL Then told me the update got interuppted...??? Where is the OTAU downloaded to so I could run it manually? Anyone know? Thanks.

I'm another one. I got a message about an update being available, tried to download it and it failed on install. I'm still on 2.3.5. I was really hoping for ICS since they have been saying in Q1 2012. I'm also on an unlimited plan so that may have something to do with it. I still quite bothered that I'm being throttled when I get to 2GB. It doesn't really slow down, it stops. If it went to 3G speeds, I'd probably be able to accept that, but once I go over the 2GB, I can't do anything.

I was having the same problem but then i decided to try to do a factory restore and then try updating. This worked the first time. ((**** Be sure you back up your photos/apps/contacts before you do this! ****)) Hope this helps!

The differences i noticed are the same as posed above. The lock screen and the dialer look slightly different. Other than that i have not noticed any real differences. Of course i am still re setting up my phone after the factory restore .

Nothing to it. Back up contacts to Google or SD card. Connect phone to pc and get photos. Android saves appdata via google so when u re-download app it should keep all the settings.
