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

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 (opens in new tab) at the usual locations (opens in new tab), 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!

  • Downloaded and installed only to find out the Dolphin Browser HD was uninstalled.
  • What happened to my original Gs2 Samsung?
  • Awesome ... but I have to wait 6 hours and 3min till I can check for update lol
  • Wait a second...AT&T and Samsung are updating a I dreaming?
  • 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.
  • Just checked. No update for me. I'm still at 2.3.5! What's with that?
