    It said 'new features' didn't say anything about a fix

    i thought orange was on 4.1.1, therefore if its now showing 4.1.2 then thats your upgrade. Google the 4.1.2 upgrade to see what you get or look at threads on here as I can't think of them all. Main feature is multi window (having two apps on screen at once). Others include adjustable notification toggles, something called 'page buddy', keyboard imporvements, chrome included as default, general ui updates.....

    If you were already on 4.1.2 then I think they re-issued it to block a security vulnerability

    No, this article is wrong. It is combining 2 faults into 1. It is getting mixed up between the Exynos Memory exploit and the Sudden death fix

    The new bootloader is rumoured to fix the Sudden death issue however there is absolutely zero evidence of it. All this bootloader does is introduce a way to prevent permanent flash counter resetting.

    As for teh Exynos flaw, yes apparently a fix is being pushed for this currently so any update after 4.1.2 is most likely that.

    I would ask that people refrain from posting that article though as its written terribly and completely inaccurate.

    I am on the 3 network and I have had the 4.1.2 update for a few weeks now so does this mean I have an unbranded/unlocked phone?

    And the phone is performing the latest update now.

    If you got it directly from 3 UK, it will be branded. If it was Phones4u / CPW, its unbranded.

    If you type *#1234# into the dialer, that info can tell us for sure.

    The article states that there is speculation surrounding Samsung ALSO fixing the sudden death issue, which is accurate. There is speculation that the sboot packaged with XXELLA fixes it. As I have already stated, there is ZERO evidence to suggest that.

    The update does indeed address the Exynos flaw, that's not speculation.


    ...But this isn't what the CNET article says. The CNET article is calling the Exynos security flaw "Sudden Death" which is inaccurate. This is my point.

    The comments in the article already pull CNET on this so:

    1) No need for me to
    2) Not sure what your problem here is.

    I simply want people to understand the current situation by reading articles that are accurate.
