    Downloaded the update from the samsung website, plugged my phone in, installed the update... and everything still looks the same on my phone. It looks like I'm still running Gingerbread 2.3.4.

    Am I doing something wrong?

    Take a look at this post: [STOCK] [CWM-BACKUP] Samsung Admire 2.3.6 Rooted and Debloated (F118)

    That post helps me a lot and now my ADMIRE is runing 2.3.6 with plenty of available space(Internal Storage)

    From what I read though, 2.3.6 was supposed to give you a new home screen or lock screen or somethin. That's why I figured the update didn't work. :/

    And it still says I have 2.3.4

    The only thing the update gives you visually is a new lock screen and a new incoming call screen

    What he linked to is a backup someone made of a rooted stock 2.3.6. You just have to flash it with she's cwm

    So there's no official 2.3.6 for the MetroPCS Admire?
    How would I flash it?

    That is the official 2.3.6. It's a backup of it someone made and it's pre rooted. I and the instructions are in the thread
