I received a rather large software update yesterday via the Software Upgrade Assistant. I was already running Android 4.3, and that's the version I still have, according to the phone. Any idea what this update might have been? Unfortunately, the update didn't come with any notes, or indication of what I was getting, what it was intended to address, etc. Would appreciate any information you might have.
The following was updated:
The Kernel Version:updated from se.infra@R0304-01 #1 Tues Sep 24 ------- To Kernel:se.infra@R0302-06 #1 Wed Oct 16
Build number version updated from JSS15J.N900VVRUBMI9 --------- To JSS15J.N900VVRUBMJ7
Most likely tweaks and/or bug fixes to improve the "user experience"
You may not want to accept update, there are alot of folks complaining it made their note 3 worse than before. Wished I knew how to get original software back because as bad as it was, it was better than this latest update, good luck.
LShan, seeing it is believing it. You can view your current software and verify if any software updates are available by following the steps listed below:
From a home screen, select Apps ( located in the lower right).

Connectivity issues mainly. Here is one quote: "now my phone wont hold a consistent signals with fluctuations from 1x to 3g to LTE.This happens in spots where i would be able to hold a LTE signal but now goes to 3g or 1x. This didnt happen until this update yesterday."
