Samsung Galaxy Note 4 top

Samsung is wasting no time in addressing that nasty “Stagefright” exploit found on more than 95% of Android devices (the one that could allow for a hacker to do all sorts of malicious activities on your device). New for Samsung Galaxy Note 4 owners on Sprint, software build N910PVPU4COG5 will soon makes its way to users and aside from bringing Android 5.1.1 goodies, takes care of that Stagefright bug.

  • Android version 5.1.1
  • Lollipop OS Upgrade
  • Message Waiting Indicator fix
  • Security fix (Stagefright)
  • Misc. bug fixes

The update weighs in at 615MB and takes care of a few other miscellaneous bugs as well. We haven’t found the usual Sprint support docs announcing the update, so if you don’t see it quite yet, don’t worry — it’s coming. Once completed, feel free to enable MMS auto-download again in your favorite messaging app. While Google did mention that Nexus devices would be seeing an update to fix Stagefright starting this week, we’d wouldn’t be surprised to find other carriers/devices pushing out something similar. Be on the lookout.
