    Ahh, Verizon... how we appreciate your consistency. The Big Red version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 just received a new update. Happily, it fixes quite a few bugs which needed squashing. Sadly, it also adds a hot pocket of new Verizon bloatware to the device as well.

    Here's a breakdown of the bug fixes:
    • Incoming call displays Picture Me on screen when using Call Waiting
    • Handwriting data entry issue for email and SMS messages has been resolved
    • Email sync issue has been fixed and connectivity has been improved
    • Bluetooth Audio continues after a call is finished
    • Mobile Hotspot reliability has been improved
    • Samsung keyboard crash issue has been resolved
    • Notification Panel responsiveness has been improved
    • Connectivity and sound quality improved
    Here's a list of the new bloatware:
    • New MyInfoZone widget
    • VMware app
    • An updated version of the Verizon Support & Protection app
    • The Verizon Cloud app
    Well... at least we can appreciate their desire to take care of those nagging little issues and improve a few features.

    I personally, love the MyInfoZone widget. At a glance I can see my battery percentage, storage, account, support, and the once a week I get little tips on the phone

    Just took the update successfully. But screen froze. Capacitive buttons worked but no go with the screen.

    Finally pulled battery and restarted without a problem.

    Can they at least give us the full version of knox for crying out loud. What is a disgrace, 2 months now and they still haven't released it.

    I would also like to see if more people are confirming that the Survival Mode of SuperUser works for keeping root after updating! Please let us know. Thanks.

    Just took the update on my rooted Note 3 - I do not use SafeStrap nor did I have anything custom other than some xPosed tweaks...I unfroze the SDM 1.0 apk, disabled SU in the SuperSU app and enabled "survival mode"...update downloaded, installed and rebooted fine. Then I went back and made the changes in SuperSU and froze SMD 1.0 - all is good thus far.
