GALAXY Note II Product Image_Key Visual

Howdy, Sprintsters! If you're a Note II owner, it's time to head into Settings > About Phone > System updates again, as The Now Network is pushing another OTA to the massive handset. It's a small one, with only a couple of fixes in tow:

Build: L900VPAMC2

- Waking a device with the home key incorrectly brings up the Recently Use applications screen

- Home Screen security updates

Exciting, no? At least you'll have a safer home screen and won't have to deal with seeing recent apps when you turn the device on with the home button post-update, though. So that's something.

The OTA should be rolling out starting today, and should hit all devices within five days. More info below.

      It's in the article. Did you read it? Build: L900VPAMC2

        It wasn't at the time, I asked Cameron to add it. I want every one of our update articles to have a build number.

    I wonder if other Note II variants (such as the SGH-I317) will be seeing a similar update soon?

  • Maxwell Kozlov

    I get the recent apps upon waking the device problem on my T-Mobile Note 2.

  • Shawn Suther

    Interesting. The leak of this (w/ same build number on 4/13, XDA) has reports of some serious lag issues, other possible probs.

    This update is a problem. Scrolling in every app is clunky and jerky. And tons of input lag issues. It's really really annoying. Very tiny issues, but they really kill the experience. I'd undo if possible.

      same thing happened to me my phone seems laggy since this update

  • Bob Sterrett

    My SPH-L900 is still on L900VPAMA7. Manual checks keep reporting the Samsung Software is up to date. My Device status is Modified (yes, I am rooted). Is rooting going to stop all OTA updates?

    • Bob Sterrett

      Woke up this morning (day 7) with the offer to reboot to apply the update.This answers the question about whether rooted devices can get OTA updates: Yes. My phone was previously rooted using Chainfire's AutoRoot via the Method 2 at http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2143479 which loads a rooted PDA image (right?). Today's OTA unrooted my phone (Device Status = Normal (instead or Modified)). I am hoping Chainfire will be able to provide an updated AutoRoot for the SPH-L900 based on the L900VPAMC2 build.

  • josh

    Will this get rid of root?

  • Fabio

    I'm rooted and I don't have any of the problems this OTA is supposed to fix and I know it will most likely break my root. Is there any way to stop the notifications?
