AT&T’s Samsung Galaxy S II Android 2.3.6 Software Update Rolling Out Now

A couple of days ago, Samsung and T-Mobile started rolling out a new software update for the Galaxy S II. Today, Samsung has teamed up with AT&T to release the Android 2.3.6 update for the the carrier’s Galaxy S II.

The Android 2.3.6 update for the AT&T Galaxy S II brings some security patches, and some minor improvements like the home button lag being fixed. The TouchWIZ launcher has also been updated and now scrolls screen circularly i.e. it will automatically take you to the first home screen when you reach the last homescreen while scrolling. The update also removes the bounce overscroll effect which happens when a user reaches the end of a list, with a blue glow effect. Users who have already installed the update are also reporting an overall smoother performance, and less battery drain while using the phone as an access point.

Many readers reported that the update failed to install for them for the first time. However, when they tried to install the update later on, it got installed successfully. The update is being rolled out in stages, so it might take sometime to hit your phone. ¬†Alternatively, AT&T SGS2 owners can manually pull the update from AT&T’s server by going to Settings->About Phone and selecting the Software Update option.
