yes that is the Update Tool for the MetroPCS Admire to go onto 2.3.6. OP you can use that without a problem but just for future purposes you go to the samsung website and check to see if the phone has any new updates

Then maybe you should use a 2.3.6 based rom like Open Android or Android World Order. Those are pretty stable and have little to no bugs on those roms. OA is based off the generic 2.3.6 update. AWO is based off the offical MPCS 2.3.6 update. You could always just stay on 2.3.4, there isn't an extreme difference between 2.3.4 and 2.3.6.

ive only ever heard to users having problems when trying to upgrade but thats cause their phone somehow got unplugged. the entire process thats less than 10 mins and as long as you have the cable plugged into the computer all the way then youll be fine. ive done the update more that 5 times already, not even kidding

Different lockscreen, different baseband, and restores all the bloatware

I'm trying the update now on a friend's phone. It's over 30 minutes now it's been sitting here. It's at 50% right now, system.rfs download is displayed at the status bar on the bottom. I'm going to leave it sit overnight, but if it's still in the same place in the morning, what should I do? Restart the phone and try the update again?

Edit: nevermind. The came became unplugged somehow (not sure how because I hadn't touched it and it was still plugged in) so I just redid the upgrade process. I used a USB port on the rear of the computer this time. I forgot that I had always had that problem when flashing my SGSII.
