AT&T Galaxy Note 2 Update Fixes The Exynos Exploit
The last time when the owners of the AT&T Samsung Galaxy Note2 got a firmware upgrade was back in December when the company released the multi-window update pack. The sad part is that the update did not bring the latest Android version, 4.2 Jelly Bean. It looks like the carrier forgot something two months ago as it already rolling out another update via OTA. This software has only 8 MB.
According to AT&T, which offers details of its official website, this new upgrade will come along with a CPU security improvement which is meant to take care of the Exynos vulnerability problem that caused a lot of trouble to the device, and to some other high-end handsets developed by Samsung.
Unfortunately, this update won’t boost your operating system to Android 4.2 Jelly Bean either, but it will bring the baseband to version I317UCAMA4.
Actually, AT&T isn’t the first carrier in the United States that released the security fix upgrade to the Samsung Galaxy Note 2. The first carrier that pushed the update is Sprint, which started rolling it out a couple of days ago.
If you own Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and you are an AT&T customer you should wait for the notification as it can arrive in any moment. In case you haven’t receive it, you can always check for the update manually by heading to “Software Update” and tap “Check for Updates”.
At 8MB the update seems useless, but believe it will fix an important issue, so make sure you download and install it on your Samsung Galaxy Note 2. After you do that, let us know by leaving a comment in the section below the article.
