While this update may not be quite as exciting as the last, AT&T has announced and begun rolling out another update for the Samsung Galaxy Note II. This latest is a security update and is now available over-the-air. Basically, those carrying an AT&T branded Galaxy Note II -- you may want to be on the lookout for an update notification.

Well, that or heading in and trying to grab that update now. To go this route, you can navigate to Menu -> Settings -> About phone to get the process started. AT&T notes that you will need to be connected to Wi-Fi in order to grab the update and that it will bring the baseband up to version I317UCAMA4. Your Note II will remain on Android 4.1.2.

The details state that this update includes a "chipset security enhancement." Basically, a small update, however given this is likely taking care of the Exynos exploit that was discovered back in December, we suspect this is an update that many will consider worthwhile. Otherwise, the update process should take just a few minutes time, however there will be a reboot once the update has been installed.

Looking back, the previous update for AT&T Galaxy Note II users came in late-December. That update however, as previously mentioned, was a bit more exciting and included the multi-window support. Bottom line here, while this latest may not be the most exciting, it is one that we think is probably good to grab.

    Thanks for the explanation. I just got my Note 2 and had the multi window update come through 2 days ago. For some reason I decided to check for an update today and was surprised to see one available. Had no clue what had changed though so I’m happy I came across this article. Thanks again
