    Just received some upgrade on VZW, but am still on 5.0.1. Perhaps in preparation for 5.1?

    That was likely the Security patch that I posted about the other day. We're assuming it's a stagefright fix at this point. I downloaded Lookout's Stage Fright Detector (after installing the patch) and ran it. Got a clean bill of health.

    There are a handful of Stagefright Detector apps in the Play Store. I chose to use the one by Lookout Security, since I've known about them longer than this Zimperium or whatever, though they're the ones who supposedly alerted Google to the problem.

    If I installed this, would it conflict with Knox?

    I wouldn't think so. It's not like a full antivirus app. It just scans to see if the exploit could be triggered on your device. I ran it, saw that I got a good result, and uninstalled it. Haha
