New OTA Update For Sprint’s Epic 4G Touch Removes Carrier IQ
Posted January 26, 2012 at 02:39 am by liwen
Sprint has said that it will remove Carrier IQ on all of its devices, and is continuing to make good on that promise with the latest OTA update targeting the Samsung Epic 4G Touch, Sprint’s own version of the Galaxy S II. The new update has the version S:D710.0.5S.EL29 with the following changelog:
- Security update
- Dismissing multiple calendar alerts
- Commercial Alert System (CMAS) activation
Of course, “security update” is corporate doublespeak for “Carrier IQ removed”. The update will roll out in the next 10 days, by which all eligible devices should have gotten it.
