    Just got an OTA update on my vzw note 2. I'm assuming it's to fix the exynos security flaw, as I haven't found any other differences.

    my phone is updating as I type.

    I'm on Verizon and my phone was in the first run.

    Would love to know what the update is supposed to do. My phone has been flawless since day one.

    Here's the info on it from Droid Life

    Looks like it locks the bootloader again and removes the exploit on the chip that allowed root access.

    Just did the update....lets see what happens..no clue what it did, but is was a quick one so could not be that much.

    Probably that Verizon smart chip that limits your data and follows you around...oh wait, they already did that.
