Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket updateSamsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket update

Folks are letting us know that the AT&T Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket is in the midst of receiving an update. However, that update's failing for a good many. We're not seeing any official changelog just yet either on AT&T's or Samsung's side, but we've got inquiries in. Chances are we're looking at bugfixes with just a 21MB update, but we'll let you know if/when we hear more.

AT&T Galaxy S II Skyrocket getting an update, failing for many

47 Comments

my friends just updated successfully it moved the version of Gingerbread up to 2.3.5, checking deeper for what bugs it fixed....

I think I'll pass on this one then, I probably would have had to reroot after the update anyways. AT&T update fail.

All u have to do to bypass the 24hr wait is turn off the auto clock and change the date to the next day. It's still failing after multiple tries for me....blah.

Just go into settings, applications, manage applications, all, device management, clear data. Best way to bypass the stupid 24 hr garbage.

So, mine finishes downloading, but since im rooted with Clockwork mod, when it tries to reboot and install, it takes me to clockwork mod and does not install the update. Not sure how to manually do it. I tell the device to reboot from CW mod and when it comes back up, phone tells me "Update not installed successfully" Do i have to go back to a stock recovery to get this installed??

I was lucky enough to recieve the update, and it flashed to my phone no problem. then i installed cwm and re rooted via odin. working on a cwm flashable zip right now for rooted users

Well this shows that at$t an Samsung hasn't giving up on this phone... usually they move on to their next flagship phone..I can't get this update... ^custom rom :-)

I'm in the Atlanta area. Downloaded fine for me. After the update and auto-reboot, it says the software update could not be installed at this time. Guess it isn't quite ready for prime time...

My dad's skyrocket updated automatically with out confirmation, and the new update looks like it added a new lock screen. Kinda looks like touchwiz ics lock screen.

Other updates included refreshed icons for phone and memos.

The camera app was also refreshed with minor changes. Only visual difference i could see was that the bottom bar where the record button was is now transparent compared to before's translucent

Oh, and I'm in the SF area. CA

Don't think its Sammy, I am with Sprint and when they did a bug fix to correct a few issue on my 4G Touch, same as the Skyrocket, the download went well and went to 2.3.6 no problem, think its ATT and it bloatware, our update let us take it all off if we wanted too.

I did a factory reset, went through the AT&T Ready2GO process, then did the AT&T upgrade. It all went fine. By the way.. that AT&T Read2GO process was easy to set my phone back up.

Here are the things I noticed so far:
Android from 2.3.5 to 2.3.6
Baseband from I727UCKJ2 to I727UCLA3
Build from Gingerbread.UCKJ2 to Gingerbread .UCLA3

Stronger LTE signal in my house, from 1-2bars to 3-4bars. Was getting 9-10mbps, will test speed later today. Interested to know if the stronger signal translates to faster LTE speed at the house.

Lock screen is faster to unlock.
Inbound calling screen is different, slide buttons are on the bottom.
Missed calls and texts are included in one circle centered in the screen, compared to one on each side. havent had time to see if that can be changed or not.
Only 4 Live wallapers, Galaxy, Grass, Ocean Weather, and Windy Weather.
App and Home button, seem to be more responsive.

Thats all I found so far.

I had to do a factory reset to install the update as well. According to the Lookout carrier IQ app, if anyone still cares it now says that carrier IQ is not on the phone after installing this update

my skyrocket stalled in the middle of the update, stayed on update WHITE screen for 3 hours, sent to att repair center and now they are replacing the phone. oh boy. hope everyone fared better then mine.

Bricked my phone....Nothing works, no vol up/down+power button, Kies refuses to recognize the phone, called ATT and they told me that it needs to be replaced! Fantastic job! Dont know who to blame ATT or Samsung!

Just bought mine on 23 Feb and it shipped with 2.3.5. Haven't gotten any update pushed from AT&T as of yet.
