    I have recently purchased the Samsung Galaxy S2 from att which has 2.3.4 installed. The screen lock feature doesnt work properly as I am able to bypass it sometimes. I have checked for software updates and there is a 20mb update available. But read from other sources that there are issues (battery, WIFI etc) with the new 2.3.6 release. Could anyone please suggest if I can proceed with installing the update and if this fixes the security flaw.

    upgraded to 2.3.6 a week ago and everything seems to be working fine. The screen lock bug has been fixed. No problem with WiFi or battery for mine.

    Thanks for the info guys... BTW I came to know from one of Dev's in XDA Dev site that the settings for screen time out and lock time out are different which was causing the issue. Having set the values accordingly, its now working fine...
