AT&T Galaxy Note II Receiving Minor OTA Update To Version MA4, Likely Fixes Exynos Exploit

AT&T's version of the Galaxy Note II is receiving a minor software update this afternoon, presumably patching the Exynos chipset exploit discovered back in December.

The new software version is I317UCAMA4, and the update is 8.45MB in size. AT&T refers to the changes as a "chipset security enhancement," so it's pretty clear that the Exynos exploit fix is probably the major feature of this patch. We've not noticed any other changes as part of the update, and the Android version remains at 4.1.2.

[New App] Market Helper Lets You Download Incompatible Apps Without Changing The Build.prop (Root Only)

One of the more annoying things about the Android app ecosystem is that there are loads of apps and games that are needlessly restricted to one device or another. If you care to get down and dirty, you can edit the build.prop file on rooted devices to make your device appear to be something other than what it is. Market Helper gets you the same results, but it doesn't touch the build-prop and it's easy to revert to your original profile.

While it's been nearly a year since Sprint last issued an OTA update to the EVO 4G, it looks like the Now Network isn't quite content to let the first EVO die just yet. A small patch incorporating security fixes was announced over at the Sprint Community forum today, bringing the EVO to version 5.07.651.6.

While this may not be the world's most anticipated update, it's definitely a noteworthy one. It's one of the first times we've seen an Android phone get an official update after over two years on the market, at least in the US.

[Deal Alert] HTC One VX In Red And White Is $.01 From AT&T And Amazon Wireless, Respectively

Want An HTC One VX for V-Day, for practically nothing? Then head to AT&T's website or Amazon, depending upon which color you prefer. Both have the device on sale for $.01 with a new or extended contract, but AT&T has the red version, while Amazon has the white. The regular subsidized price from both retailers for the phone is $49.99. I'd go with the white ( it looks a little more snazzy) but there's no accounting for taste.
