Just got a Device Management message that a software update for my Skyrocket was available from AT&T, and it automatically connected and started downloading the 20 megs or so. It went throught the installation process, but as the progress bar got to 75% or so, the screen went dark and the phone rebooted, showing an error message "Install interrupted. The software update could not be installed at this time." So I went into Settings/Software Update, clicked on Check For Updates, and it again went through the same download & install process, with the same error result. I tried again, and this time it told me that my software was up to date, and that I could check again in about 24 hours. I am still running Android v2.3.5.
Anyone out there have any idea what this update is for, and why it won't install? Thanks.

Good point, I don't trust ATT to be on time with the update, but I can hope that the update thats being pushed in the timeframe they gave is ICS. I won't hold my breath though.

I have the same issue. BUT I already had 2.3.6 installed on my skyrocket. So I am wondering what this update is. since I already had 2.3.6.

I'm in the same camp as you guys. I tried it twice and it failed both times at 75% on the white screen. Then my phone boots up as usual.

I'm not an unlimited user so I can't image then hindering my data since I pay for 2GB and never go over. But maybe it is for other unlimited LTE users?

Ha! you bring up a very interesting point. I had the same problem, the download never completed. And now you got me thinking, cause I am under an unlimited data plan.

If I would guess, it will be GB 2.3.6 with Carrier IQ removed.
ICS update will be much much later and much larger in size (think 200MB). The rumored ICS date (3/1) is for international versions of SGS2 and Note. AT&T versions will probably wait another 3 to 6 months.

If we ever able to get his update downloaded and installed, do any of you know if we can undo it and go back to 2.3.5 (currently on my Sky) can we back up the firmware like we do on iPhone? any suggestions!
No you can't. It is a one way street unless you track down a 2.3.5 firmware and know how to use ODIN to flash it yourself.

I've tried twice, says I have to wait 24 hours, but says my software is up to date and shows version 2.3.5
24-hour thing is easily fixed by clear the app data of Device Management app.

It is installing on mine right now (84% and climbing).
99% <long pause>
100% "update is OK"
Nothing new on the boot screen. Though it does take much longer once the logo has been drawn and "rethink possible" is etched on the screen. Normally, I'm only at this screen for a second or two. It was at least a minute or more.
- The unlock screen is different. It now shows a concentric circle with a padlock when I touch it telling me to swipe to unlock.
- The device management page is up when I unlock. All it says is, "Installation completed. The software has been successfully installed. Your phone is now ready to use."
- Build number is not Gingerbread.ucla3 (I do not recall what it was before.)
- Android Version 2.3.6
- Kernel 18.104.22.168
I cannot see any other differences yet.
