Galaxy S4 Google Play Edition Joins The JWR66Y Club With MH5 Over-The-Air Update

Now that the HTC One Google Play Edition is dancing in the club that exclusively admits devices running the latest bleeding-edge version of Android, it's time for Samsung's Galaxy S4 Google Play Edition to do the same. For some reason Samsung seems a lot less coy about the update - while only a few users on the XDA forums are reporting that they've received the latest software (labeled MH5), both the kernel source code and the official over-the-air update have been posted to the usual spots.

The JWR66Y update to Android 4.3 is comparatively tiny, consisting of a few security enhancements and precisely zero impact to the end user.

HTC One Google Play Edition OTA Update 3.07.1700.1 (JWR66Y) Rolling Out Now

If you're using a stock HTC One from the Google Play Store, check your phone's notification drawer. Go on, check it. I'll wait. If you're one of the lucky few, you may be seeing a special surprise in the form of a software update. At least one XDA Developers member got the update to version 3.07.1700.1 earlier this morning, though he was using a standard model One that he'd soft-converted into a Google Play Edition.

We're not sure exactly what's in this update, but the build number is marked JWR66Y.H1, indicating that it's probably the same small bump that Nexus devices started receiving in late August.

AT&T Galaxy Note II Getting A 165MB OTA To Version I317UCAMH3 That Doesn't Really Do Anything Interesting

The Galaxy Note II is getting an OTA update. Hooray, right?! Eh, kind of. The update clocks in at 165MB, but it doesn't bump the Android version or even add new features. What you're getting is 165MB of updates to Google and AT&T preloaded apps.

2013-09-11 15_06_04-Update the Software for the Samsung Galaxy Note II (i317) - AT&T Wireless Suppor

The update will be pushed down to everyone automatically over the coming days, but you can check for the OTA manually from the Software Update menu. After the update, your About Device screen should still read Android 4.1.2, but baseband will be I317UCAMH3 and the kernel should be 3.0.31-1363381. This update is still a variant of the JZO54K build of Jelly Bean.

Samsung 4.2.2 Tablet Updates: Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 WiFi (GT-P3110) In The UK, Galaxy Note 8.0 3G (GT-N5100) In Germany

It's been nine months to the day since Android 4.2 was announced, and just under four months since Samsung's first non-Nexus 4.2 devices started hitting the shelves. But apparently it takes at least that long to make sure that every non-touch gesture and gyroscopic scrolling function works with a new version of Android. Case in point: both the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 WiFi (GT-P3110) in the UK and the Galaxy Note 8.0 3G (GT-N5100) in Germany are just now getting updated, according to SamMobile.

The 4.2.2 update for Samsung's tablets has been kind of sporadic.

PSA: The Latest Chromecast Over-The-Air Update (12840) Patches The Bootloader Exploit Used To Obtain Root

The Chromecast runs a modified version of Android, so of course modders are all over it like white on rice. The folks at GTVHacker already gave us a working bootloader hack and root access, not that there's much you can do with it at the moment except switch to the beta or dev channel. Unfortunately, a quick over-the-air update for the Chromecast seems to have closed this modding avenue already. One XDA-Developers member has discovered this firsthand. We're currently waiting to hear back from GTV Hacker with a confirmation.

It looks like the change wasn't intended to mess with GTV Hacker's root method, which involved loading up a custom USB boot image.

AT&T Pantech Discover Makes The Jump To Android 4.1.2 Via OTA Update

Thanks to an update released today, the AT&T Pantech Discover is making the jump to Android 4.1.2. It may be two versions behind at this point, but it still gives users access to Google Now, which is perhaps the biggest advancement that Jelly Bean has to offer. Now you would be forgiven for seeing this phone's brand and rolling your eyes, but the Discover is actually a competent device. With its 4.8 720p screen, 1.5GHz dual-core processor, and massive 12.6 megapixel camera, this has the taste - if not the smell - of a high-end device. It only costs $49 from AT&T with a two-year contract, and it comes with an "easy experience" theme that perhaps makes this a compelling handset for users who would be otherwise intimidated by a vanilla Android device.
