Sprint Epic 4G Touch, T-Mobile Galaxy Note 2 getting fixes so far
When word dropped in December about an exploit to the kernel used with some Samsung Exynos chipsets, Sasmung promised an update "as quickly as possible" to plug the hole. Looks like fixes are starting to push out. Here's what we're seeing so far:
- Sprint Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch: Sprint has officially announced software update FL24. It'll be rolling out over the next 30 days or so. In addition to "security updates," it adds Sprint's Connections Optimizer. More in our Epic 4G Touch forums. If you can't wait for the update to push out to you, Team Sextape (really, folks?) has it in TAR form.
- T-Mobile Galaxy Note 2: Also official is the T889UVALL4 update for TMo's Note 2. The update comprises "Exynos and other security enhancements" along with "various bug fixes." The update is pushing out over the air, or you can update manually via Kies. More in our Note 2 forums.
Other devices affected include the international Galaxy S2, Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note and Note 2, certain tablets using Exynos 4, Galaxy Player models, Galaxy Tab 2s and the Galaxy Note 10.1.
