Samsung quick to send out fix for Rogers Galaxy S2 LTE


Samsung sent out an update last week for Rogers customers who own the Galaxy S2 LTE & it seems there were some issues. Well Samsung has been very quick to fix these issues & have just announced on their Facebook page that they are rolling out an update to fix these issues. If you updated your Galaxy S2 LTE already you’ll need to update over KIES according to Samsung, but if you haven’t updated to JB yet then you can now update with an OTA update that should be waiting for you.

Go to your settings – About device – Software update – Update & download the new update with all the bugs fixed.
Great work with the quick fixes Samsung.
Has anyone updated previously & had issues then updated this new version? Does it fix the issues?
