Ashok, 28 Dec 2011Upgrade is curently running on my SGSII. Twice I have aborted. 2nd step is damn slow.How much time do you waited for the 2nd step? I kept my phone for complete 30minuts but no progress atall. I use 1mbps Internet connection which is enough fast I guess.

Whats the point of update 2.3.6 without gtalk video chat ?, which is major feature of 2.3.4.
One more point to say confidently that samsung development team is much lazy or either not capable.
I am Galaxy S GT - I9000 user from mumbai using 4.0.3 and enjoying gtalk video chat.
