I think 2.3.6 is being released for s5830I and not for s5830. Can anyone confirm? I'm currently with 2.3.4 in India. Kies shows it's the latest firmware.

Yes 2.3.4 is the currente ver in India & KIES confirms it for me too. But s5830I has never sold in India so why did they make that announcement? Mine is Samsung Galaxy Ace GT-S5830/S (GT-S5830OKAINU)

Are you sure that s5830I is not sold in India? Then why the heck they rolled out the update? Also thru samsung's twitter I inquired and they said 2.3.5 is available for s5830 in India. But that also doesn't come.

But did they specify that 2.3.5 is available for Galaxy Ace. It could available for some other model I think we should hold our horses, in all probability they must have made a clerical error in the model nomenclature.

I connected my phone to KIES today it said there was some patch i agreed to install after it went thru it showed this as current ver of firmware


Uploaded with ImageShack.us

then KIES gave an error & crashed, after restarting its back to what it was originally ver 2.34. S5830DDKQ6

I guess Samsung believes in using KIES to test your loyalty to Samsung & Android

socrates0 thanx.. i am installing that now.
Mean while, I updated kies. As u have posted the snapshot, i think there is some glitch in your update. Try disabling antivirus of your pc and then update kies. It should work fine. For me, it's showing this though i didn't update my firmware yet.

Hmm there was a small patch (update) to KIES some days ago. Cool what is the size of the update & how long did it take. I suppose you used WiFi & what are the changes as compared to 2.3.4 in India.

The lock screen is changed to 4.0 style, few changes in icons and mostly the performance is improved... still trying to figure out what are all the changes in 2.3.6.. OTA download size was 14mb, used wifi so it was quick installation took about 10 to 15 minutes...

Is this the right way about going in for the OTA update. Go to Menu->Settings->About Phone-> Software Update. In my case Sign up.

It is the right way.. it is asking you to sign in with your Samsung account... if you don't you can just sign up for one by going to "Samsung account" in "software update" menu.

RAM consumption is less compared to 2.3.4 and even Internal memory freed up a bit... performance is really improved and battery drain is also less

Did you take backups of all your data sms/contacts/notes/appointments/photos etc. I suppose all that is lost during the update.
Do you have to remove the memory card/sim during this procedure?

You might want to take a back up just in case but you won't lose anything by updating. Nothing needs to be removed either, just go for it! It's an official update so the chance of something going wrong is very slim..

I wish O2 would get the 2.3.6 update out over here!

Updated from 2.3.4 to 2.3.6 today. OTA & not thru KIES . Downloaded in less than 5 minutes but the installation took at least 30+ minutes. In fact I was wondering if the update had got stuck midway but it went thru slowly (patience in not my strong point). Like others have mentioned I noticed this (immediately on starting).
1) Home screen clock display shifted to bottom.
2) New unlock system. Can be confusing as there no direction on what to do.
3) No problem (so far) in browsing thru the gallery.
4) There is a slight different in accessing the contacts/sms/logs. Basically the first three buttons frm the left side.
Will update in due course as & when I notice an upgradation/degradation in performance.

@wearethestorm You were right I didn't loose any data But I had taken a backup of everything, just in case

Just noticed that the ringtone for receiving a sms & the delivery report is the same - no matter what ringtone you have applied Bloody inconvenient
&
When the phone gets charged I do not get s sound notification like in 2.3.4
Has anyone noticed the same? I wonder what the 'Notification' ringtone is used for?
@dhawanmohinish You have mentioned 'new kind of notifications on home screen while msg,call comes.' Is this same as what I mentioned in this post? My ringtone for incoming calls has not changed.

Even i bought the same last week. It is 5830i with 832 and 2.3.6.
Place: Bangalore

Battery seems to be really bad. I charge it previous night and without much usage it goes off by evening around 5 or 6.
