    Updates do not come in apk form. they are not apps.

    Rather they come in .zip for to load manually via recovery. If youre not rooted your best bet is to just sit tight and wait for it.

    I'm sorry. How did THIS thread get posted on the homepage. I guess we're going with this title now instead of the original 2.3.6 post?

    The only thing keeping me at bay here and not rushing back to stock is Visa is not supported as of yet. But good news to see they jumped on board like I figured they will. The prepaid card would have been nice 2 days ago when I left my wallet at home and needed to buy lunch with 2 dollars and some lint. Nice emergency 20 on there. CVS, 711, Mcdonalds. You get the point, lol.

    Are you rooted and stock or rooted with a different rom? Rooted with a different rom. Wait for your rom to update? Stock. Download the OTA and probably reflash SU.

    I'm probably just going to wait on CM7. Just got a nightly update that hasn't random rebooted once with 1.4ghz overlock Netarchy. So, maybe if Visa was supported out of the box I'd go back to my stock rom but I'll wait. Maybe, with luck, the apk will work on the 2.3.5 build. Maybe... lol.

    Edit: I just want to point out how I think it's funny that this time Google is telling us the update is here; and, last time Sprint posted the update on their site and pulled it and this time Sprint doesn't have it on there site.

    I don't think it actually works because it never worked for me but just spell it out on the number pad.

    LOL. You were too busy looking at your dial pad to see what the numbers were. I took the shortcut.

    no update here either. Funny thing is .. I was rooted and had Oxygen ROM (my favorite ) installed. So in hopes of Getting Google Wallet, I went back to Stock (still leaving it unlocked though) ... As soon as I rebooted, that first update was pushed right away.. you know the one from back in July ...25th or whatever.. but the Latest update for Google Wallet isn't showing up.

    I think it's strange that july's update showed up in seconds ..and Google wallet isn't pushed.. I would think it's the same server that they're coming from.

    I'm sure the "switch" is left on at this point and it will roll out immediately to whoever needs it. Which is like what 20 people. No bandwidth issue there. And it's known to work. Flip it on now to EVERY Nexus S owner and not knowing if it works. Problem when your OTA only.

    I meant zip, sorry. In any event I forced the last update after downloading the proper zip file and loading it through the bootloader. Not that big of a deal to do manual update. If anyone finds the zip file please post. I don't feel like waiting for the automatic update as it seems many of you feel the same way. Thanks!

    Meaning that's all the ever happens. I think maybe it's for persons who don't have a previous update. Ie if you were to flash back to ship build you could do that and get what's been out now for a while. Not the new ones.

    I'm rooted and stock. . . But what is SU??
    Yeah, if I'm rooted I should probably know what that means, feel free to make fun of me!
    I love the stock feel but wanted to be able tether my 4G and use screen capture!

    With the OTA, doesn't it take you back to stock unrooted??? That was the fear when the game out with 2.3.5 and Chud here walked me through a download that kept everything so I'm wondering if some one is going to come out with the same.

    SU means Superuser the app that's in your app tray with a Android and 2 bones.
