Skyrocket OTA

If you're rocking the new LTE Samsung Skyrocket on AT&T, you might want to check for an OTA update.  An OTA to Android 2.3.6 is pushing out now, and we manually checked on our review unit (Menu>Settings>Software update>Check for updates) and sure enough, one was waiting.  We're not quite sure what was changed here -- we know that 2.3.6 addressed a bug in Google voice search, but we imagine Samsung and AT&T packaged a bit more into this one.  We're not seeing anything listed at the usual locations, so we've reached out to AT&T and Samsung for an answer.  In the meantime, updates are always fun and make our inner Android geek feel good, so grab yours and we'll sort it out in the forums.

Thanks, Vlad!

Samsung Skyrocket OTA update pushing out now, updates to Android 2.3.6


Updated in the same month it was release? Amazing how much support this device will get! Love the SKYROCKET!

When I updated I noticed a new baseband(I727UCKK1). I'm in Dallas for Thanksgiving so I've got LTE. I noticed a big improvement in my speeds. From about 7Mbps to a best of 30Mbps. Not bad. Will know in a couple days when I get back to Tulsa if it helped the poor HSPA+ speeds. 1~2Mbps, not good.
