Hello all,

The last updated I received on my AT&T Note 4 was the August 1, 2017 Android security patch level, which was probably around September-October of 2017 (obviously I don't remember).

But, mid-morning Nov 12, 2020 I started receiving notifications that a software update was available. I just ignored them, thinking it was some kind of bug. But when I woke up the morning of Nov 13, 2020 I found that my phone had restarted after installing the update. It was waiting on my boot password, and after typing that in it went through the normal "optimizing apps" screen that appears after a system update.

Here is the information from the "About device" page:

Device name
SAMSUNG-SM-N910A

Model number
SAMSUNG-SM-N910A

Android version
6.0.1

Android security patch level
August 1, 2017

Baseband version
N910AUCU2ETI2

Kernel version
3.10.40-8932341
[email protected] #1
Mon Sep 14 16:23:37 KST 2020

Build number
MMB29M.N910AUCU2ETI2

Security Enhancements for Android status
Enforcing
SEPF_SECMOBILE_6.0.1_0029
Mon Sep 14 16:28:02 2020

Security software version
MDF v2.0 Release 6
VPN v1.4 Release 6.1
ASKS v1.2 Release 161011

KNOX version
KNOX 2.6
Standard SDK 5.6.0
Premium SDK 2.6.0
Customization SDK 2.6.0
Container 2.6.0
CEP 2.0.1
Enterprise Billing 1.2.0
OTP 2.6.0
SE for Android 2.4.0
SSO 2.5.0
Shared Devices 2.6.0
TIMA 3.2.003
VPN 2.2.5


So it looks like somebody (Samsung?) in Korea (KST is Korea Standard Time) compiled the Linux kernel on Mon, Sep 14 2020 4:23 pm and pushed out an update. Anybody have any further information?

AT&T has an information page on the update here (I included spaces in the URL which you'll have to remove manually due to forum not letting me post links):

<AT&T Base URL> / device-support/ article/ wireless/ KM1126949/ Samsung/ GalaxyNote4N910A

But there's no information other than the release date was Nov. 10, 2020. Android version is still 6.0.1 (same as last update), and the Security patch level is still August 1, 2017 (same as last update).

The kernel version in this update is 3.10.40-8932341, same as the kernel version from the July 21, 2017 AT&T update, but the compile date of this kernel is Mon Sep 14. So I don't know if Samsung/AT&T applied some patches without bumping the kernel version, or if they just recompiled the kernel for fun.

The information page link is https://www.att.com/device-support/article/wireless/KM1126949/Samsung/GalaxyNote4N910A

It says that the change is to implement a "Network conflict fix".
The build number and baseband version have been updated:
Build number: MMB29M.N910AUCU2ETI (was MMB29M.N910AUCS2EQH1 )
Baseband version: N910AUCU2ETI2 (was N910AUCS2EQH1)

I haven't updated and I haven't noticed any network issues. I'm using a data only SIM from AT&T MVNO FreedomPop which doesn't get updates. I'll probably use an at&t SIM to update in a few days if no one reports any issues with the update.

I took the update around the middle of December (three weeks ago). I haven't noticed any issues or any visual operational changes at all.
