Hey guys, it looks like Verizon is rolling out an update. I clicked to see what was inside but it took me to a broken link. Does anyone know anything about this?

Yeah mine is the same. Can't tell any differences so far. The link for what the update contains was broken, so I have no details. I am sure they will be posted here soon enough though.

Mine just completed. Odd, they updated the kernel with a date of 9/8 but did not push the Sept security patch.

Thanks to you two for that then lol. Can't stand people that pick others stuff and post it taking credit. But anyway thanks for the help... I had no idea what the update was for and just clicked it in a half sleep this morning.

I was reading about that bluebourne vulnerability so glad they covered that. Anyone know who runs that blog?

The article author's email address is at the end of the article. I don't know that he runs the blog, but someone keeps deleting my comments. The vulnerability IS NOT FIXED by this update. Armis' vulnerability scanner indicates that my updated Note 8 is still vulnerable.

EDIT: A post to a VZW update thread on Reddit suggests that the Armis app may be providing a false positive. I've emailed Armis with a request for verification and will followup if/when they reply.

UPDATE: Version 1.04 of Armis' app now correctly reports that VZW Note 8s have been patched to eliminate the vulnerability.

Well, I was prompted to install this update on my "SM-N950F/DS" (international variant), and maybe the update you're getting includes some of these changes?

I noticed that I can't see the device maintenance option anymore. I was trying to look to see my free ram available

Any way to know if this could effect a potential root exploit or not? I'm always leery of taking updates when I first get a phone that hasn't achieved root yet. Is it safe to install?
