Did anyone else get a pop-up for a new OTA update today? I'm running NI2 and the new one looks to be NK2. Google doesn't return much in the way of results for something coming today/recently. There's not much on Verizon's site either: http://www.verizonwireless.com/dam/s...5-12-16-14.pdf All it lists is a VPN fix, SD card fix, and replacing ISIS with Softcard. It does not appear to be Lollipop

Hopefully flashing the kernel to NCG rooting and then returning to the current kernel still will work. I can download the files if someone can explain how to extract the kernel.

I got the update and applied it. Lost root (knew I would), but everything else seems fine.

I don't know how to extract the kernel though. Hopefully others take notice and help you or just provide the process and files for the masses.

Also just got the update on my Verizon GS5.
Appears to be a small update as the download and install did not take as long as other major updates.
Verizon still at 4.4.4
Unable to find any reference to the change log via a google search.

Anyone have a change log?

Still amazes me after all these years how quick people are to install updates. I don't touch them with a ten foot pole till i find out 100% what's in them lol.

use terminal emulator or adb (just need root) - for system and kernel dump

Code:
su 
dd if=dev/block/mmcblk0p15 of=/mnt/sdcard/boot.img
dd if=dev/block/mmcblk0p23 of=/mnt/sdcard/system.img

Seems to be a small and non-critical update. I'll probably skip on this and wait for lollipop.

I've had a few skips here and there, but occurances vary greatly depending on the app, BT device, and distance. 90%, though, is problem free.
