Verizon Software Update EC02

You hear that Verizon Galaxy Tab owners? Verizon is showing you some love and updating your software. Obviously this is not Honeycomb, or even a Gingerbread update, but who does not like updated software?

Soon your Tab should get a notification letting you know that the update is available. If you choose to install later the notification will reappear every 30 minutes until you install the update. So you might as well just get it over with. According to Verizon the 34.6 MB update should only take 5-10 minutes to download and 5 minutes to apply the update.

    I like how this update installs an older version of Flash. Fortunately, the update failed half way through so I don’t have to go back and fix everything. I’m holding out for the Android 4.0 update (ice cream)…

      That probably means that the update was finished about a month ago. What I want to know is why even include it in the update and not just let the Android Market updater take care of it.

      The great thing about this update is it enables HID support. That makes it worth having to “fix” flash methinks…. ; )

        Absolutely worth it! It also enables VPN. Big plus for me.
