    This is one of the reasons you don't need to take OTA updates after rooting.
    Updates are much more timely when using a custom ROM, which also have more features than stock.

    From what I read, it seems the OTA update did a lot more than patch the one particular exploit.

    This post was started by the guy that came up with the bootloader unlock process.

    Here is another one.

    So, what if you haven't yet rooted the phone and are on this latest OTA? Is it now impossible to root the phablet?

    I've had my VZW Note 2 since Dec. 21st and used the app from Google Play to root. Worked like a charm. Then I applied the fix to make multiview work with ANY app and it too worked like a charm. Then I got STUPID and tried to load a custom bootloader and "bricked" my phone. I downloaded Odin and a stock ROM image and fixed my phone (returned it to stock) but the 1-click method wouldn't work any longer. I had to download a pre-rooted odin file. Afterwards, I tried to apply the multiview fix and it bricked my phone again. I had to run Odin again and put the pre-rooted ROM back on the phone again. So I DO have root, but I can't get the multiview to work AND I can't load a unlocked bootloader either.

    Freakin' Verizon!

    Okay, So I am rooted using the Exynos abuse app that I downloaded. What will happen if I apply this update?

    I am not running any customer roms. Is there a change log of what this update does?
