Default Easiest Way to upgrade to Gingerbread v2.3.6

What is the safest and easiest way to make this upgrade from v2.3.4.

Any thoughts. I have done the research and there is no real good method that I see.

Has anyone done this and noticed a difference?

Is it worth it?

I've done this. It doesn't really matter if you upgrade your phone, its just slightly faster and and slightly better stability. But if you want to keep your phone up to the latest updates, you can do so.

i was wondering if there was really any benefit to it. I have no speed or stability problems with 2.3.4. Any real benefits to validate the update?

Anyone have the location of the rom and a tutorial on how to upgrade. My phone is rooted.

Hmm... I don't get it. I'm still stuck with Android 2.3.3.

Whenever I look for a software update, it keeps telling me that there is none although many people I know already have 2.3.4 pre-installed...

@Brython
It usually takes a long time for the phone to find updates on the internet. (I don't know why..) I had to wait like 1 month, then i checked updates on my tablet and it finally said that there were updates!?!
