Sprint Galaxy Note 2 owners should be looking for an update notification sometime soon, as the carrier has begun to push out a security fix update which bumps the device to version L900VPAMA7. While not particularly exciting, security fixes are important so you'll be wanting to grab it as soon as it becomes available. 

The update is rolling out in stages OTA and Sprint says all users should receive it within 5 days. To check for the update manually, head into Settings>System Update>Update Samsung Software>Check Now. If there's anything else you notice post update, be sure to jump into the comments below, or the forums, and let us know what you've found.

Sprint pushing out security fix update to Samsung Galaxy Note 2

Same question I have. I'm thinking that this is the security update for exynos exploit so the chances are that it will. I will be heading over to the forums to see what people are saying.

I heard that google wallet r96 will work on this update. Check for r96 on xda and let us know if you try it. I will be trying hopefully soon after my phone sees the update.

Bravo Sprint. Just pulled down the update and the Note 2 works even better. Was about 289mb so it took a bit. Browser seems much faster and windows come up quicker than before. Some of the widgets changed a bit too, such as the browser favorites used to be 4 wide and now it's 3. Battery life appears better as does cpu usage but I haven't had the update for more than a few hours so take it with a grain of salt.

It's great when they release updates that improve the device. Good job Samsung and Sprint. I don't usually post about device updates but quite pleased with it and good deeds deserve to be rewarded in my book.

I'm pure stock no root so not sure if this update breaks any root/roms.

I also notice the same improvements you have talked about as well
However, I have a caveat that the icon for 'Smart Stay' is on nonstop unless turned off, of course this could be from me using 'Rotation Control,' but unlikely

Clear data on the application "Google Services Framework" and restart. May have to do this a couple times. That worked for my fiance's S3 update to 4.1

Got the notification of the update today. Why the heck is the smart stay icon persistent? Just clutters up the notification bar even more. The update did allow Google Wallet which is very nice.

Clear data on the application "Google Services Framework" and restart. May have to do this a couple times. It will either prompt you to update, or you will have to manually check for the update in your settings

well i got Galaxy note 2 and i am still waiting for the update here in Oman. I tried changing CSC but not helping. Can anyone tell me which CSC to select to get the update?
