    Oh I just found out something else interesting about the 2.3.6 update. If you hook the samsung galaxy s2 skyrocket up to the computer via the usb cable and enter samsung Kies, almost all of samsung Kies will work but as for updating it through samsung kies I get the message "The device is not campatiable for update via Kies". So it looks like another area is broke. I contacted samsung about this also and they said the baseband version I am running differs from the version they have on record for the samsung skyrocket. If any of you would like to know, im running on a samsung galaxy s2 skyrocket sgh-i727 on at&t with a baseband version of I727UCLA3 if that helps anyone. Samsung told me I should have a baseband version of I727UCKK1 instead.

    I haven't gotten a notification for an update, so maybe they have pulled back?

    Looks like most of this update is Apple patent lawsuits related. Both the slide to unlock, sliding wallpaper, and slide to answer call are all changed to differentiate from Apple. All these "features" are in the latest ICS AT&T leaked build as well.

    Last I checked, the iPhone doesn't slide the whole screen to unlock, doesn't have a sliding wallpaper, and doesn't have an even close call screen as the skyrocket.

    Apple is arguing the motion of the slide from one side of the screen to another as an infringement. Like slide to answer call.

    Anyway, it is what it is. Justed wanted to clarify to some of you expecting the sliding wallpaper to be a bug. I think it was intentional on Samsung's part.

    If true, that stinks then that politics between manufacturers are crimping tech advances. Is Samsung forced to do this concession with all their phones?

    Next apple is going to sue for other devices having a touchscreen or icons for apps. I can see it now.

    I love Apple but I am NO fanboy. I actually despise Apple fanboys. Anyway, all of the lawsuits are because Steve Jobs wanted to destroy Android by spending every penny Apple has. Hopefully Tim Cook will come to a settlement and call it quits.

    I was rooted with several apps frozen, updated the first time with no problems. Root is still intact and no issues to report. So far so good.

    I noticed that the update fixed my bluetooth issue with my car
    I hope they fixed that. I'm getting tired of restarting my phone once or twice a day just to get it to connect with my car!

    Guess you got lucky or something, Just tried for the second time it downloads, reboots then gets to 75% and says update is failed.

    I am rooted with just the att bs apps and tethering manager frozen.

    Guess ill wait till ICS

    Just did this update last night and it looks like battery life is better so far. Other than that, I haven't found much difference other than the unlock and call answering buttons. No problems found either.

    just downloaded this update and after reading about some of the changes, namely to the "swipe" actions, i checked the stock alarm in the clock app --- that too has changed from the simple swipe bars to the "swipe circles" that can be swiped in any direction.

    i've got to say, i think I like the swipe in any direction better - especially in the morning when I'm frantically trying to snooze the alarm.

    Edit: looks like the new message notification on the lock screen has been changed too, to an obnoxious red dot that reminds me of a "DO NOT PRESS" button... Though it is conveniently located right where my thumb likes to land, rather than having to awkwardly flick the ribbon like before

    I just got and update for samsung Kies today on my skyrocket sgh-i727. I havent attached it to my computer yet but I'm hoping this addresses the issue with Kies where I could not update my phone via samsung Kies. Just posting this to let the rest know about the update.

    whats the word on the street about ICS coming to sky rocket ATT?

    ICS will be coming but I think I wont wait. The moment that the SIII comes out I might jump ship like I did from the Infuse to the SII. Waiting and waiting for GB almost killed me

    I'm running the leak. Going back to GB wouldn't kill me, but I prefer ICS, even in its beta stage.

    Pulled out my Skyrocket today to charge it as my GNote is my daily driver. While updating several apps, I decided to check the software update. A 20.8 MB file downloaded and installed with no issue. It is the UCLA 3 update. I immediately checked it with my car bluetooth and it works much better than before. Seems like a stable upgrade!
