Android N is already on the horizon, and yet, some carriers have dallied on their release of the Android Lollipop upgrades. The situation is worse for older models, since they seem to be less of a priority, with all the new models coming out and more on the horizon.
But no matter, for Samsung Galaxy Note 4 users on Verizon, the update has finally landed. Take note that Sprint released the update back in August 2015 yet, AT&T rolled out their update in October, while T-Mobile released the Lollipop 5.1.1 update for Samsung Galaxy Note 4 in November 2015.
For the interested, the software version for the Verizon release is LMY47X.N910VVRU2BOK3, and integrates upgrades to the Samsung Knox security platform, adds support for Android for Work, and even removes two “bloatware” apps. Good news, for those who need these upgrades, as well as for those who are allergic to bloatware.
In order to upgrade, just follow these steps for accessing the OTA (Over-The-Air) Upgrade:
-Log on to the Internet, either via WiFi, LTE, 4G, or 3G.
-Go to: Settings > About Device > Software Update > Choose “OK.”
-Follow the directions from there.
-Check if the software/baseband version is “LMY47X.N910VVRU2BOK3,” and you’ve successfully upgraded your Samsung Galaxy Note 4 to the latest-possible version for the device.
Here is AndroidPit’s log of all the Lollipop Upgrades for practically all brands, and all the device models that matter: https://www.androidpit.com/android-lollipop-update-overview-for-smartphones-and-tablets
On the other hand, if you are so inclined, here is a video tutorial on how to manually upgrade any device to Android Lollipop: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NthrVVwwyps
And here’s another video tutorial on how to “skin” your device to look more like Android Lollipop or Android Marshmallow: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KmrN9aouvC8
Take note, the latter tutorial is just a guide on how to modify the SKIN of the device, and doesn’t necessarily give the device the Lollipop software and firmware upgrades available on the actual software upgrade.
Back to the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Upgrade for Verizon: It seemed like a long time in coming, but at best, at last, it’s now here. For Galaxy Note 4 users on Verizon who have finally made the switch from Kitkat to Lollipop, congratulations, you’re one step closer to Marshmallow.
