Users of the Nexus S have apparently been reporting issues with the Voice Search function baked into Gingerbread activating of its own accord randomly, as a Nexus S owner i`ve never come across, but it’s apparently serious enough for Google to announce that it`s rolling out an OTA update to Android 2.3.6 to fix this bug.
However it appears to come with a catch, users who have completed the update are reporting that this breaks the tethering side. I asked VodafoneAU_help about this update on Twitter last night and they advised they have no news on the update but to keep watching their software information page.
Just as a side note, you might be thinking 2.3.6? I’m on 2.3.4, what happened to 2.3.5?
In the US the 2.3.5 was rolled out as a fix for Sprint Nexus S 4G users who experienced WiMax issues, so i`m guessing this update will be fairly useless for users in Australia but will be rolled into the 2.3.6 update anyway when it arrives. We`ll keep you posted on the update.
