I don't have an Android device, so I have no idea if the patch works :)

Does anyone know the % of Android devices on that old platform? "Android 2.3.6" seems like a quite old platform, right?

I found these stats from January 2014:

Android 2.3.6 looks like it's part of the second-largest usage band (21.2%), Gingerbread.
