Verizon is now pushing an over-the-air update to the Samsung Galaxy Note II, though the company has yet to declare what changes the update makes to its largest phone. Considering that Samsung yesterday issued updates to the Epic 4G Touch and the Galaxy Note II on T-Mobile to address security vulnerabilities related to the Exynos processors, it's likely that the Verizon update does the same. While the update addresses some important security concerns, it also appears to prevent a method used to unlock the device bootloader and enable customization. Those who like to tinker with their phone's software may want to wait to learn more about the update before applying it.
