    Some SGS2's come with 2.3.3 and you can upgrade to 2.3.4.

    The next step is 2.3.4

    There is no further upgrade written yet. It is the latest Gingerbread OS that exists!:eek:

    What else do you want?:thinking:

    No worries, so were we all once upon a time. :)

    As well as the Android OS itself having specific versions such as 2.2.x (Froyo) and 2.3.x (Gingerbread), the core Google apps also have their own versioning.

    This new version of the Market app has been pulled from an already-updated handset and made available for everyone. In time it will be rolled out automatically to all handsets, but this allows users avoid the wait.

    It's already been rolled out, I received the new version of the market around two weeks ago, it auto updated after using a market fix which must have cleared the cache or something.

    Obviously not to everyone just yet though, or nobody would be installing this "new" version. ;)

    I think you will find that that is the old "new" Market (3.0.27) you received OTA.

    This is version 3.1.3 which was only released 24th Aug.

    If you go to Settings > Applications >Manage applications > All > Market... you can see which version you have.

    I was refering the to the new look market, not a specific version but yes it's 3.0.27.

    Well no, if I never ran the market fix I would probably still be on the old market, plus it required root.

    I'm not sure exactly why it updated but it was either after running the market fix from Chainfire 3D or after using market enabler, both require root.

    If your rooted give them a try.
