New OTA Update For Sprint’s Epic 4G Touch Removes Carrier IQ

samsung epic 4g touch

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.

Sprint previously removed Carrier IQ on the HTC EVO 3D and, one week later, HTC EVO 4G, EVO Design 4G and Samsung Epic 4G.
