If you own an Epic 4G Touch on the Now Network, you may want to go into settings and check to see if your system is up-to-date because Sprint is rolling out a new update now. The EL29 update’s source code actually dropped a week ago so we all knew the update was coming soon. The official Changelog is below:
- Security update
- Dismissing multiple calendar alerts
- Commercial Alert System (CMAS) activated
The Epic 4G Touch update — officially to software version S:D710.0.5S.EL29, if you’re a geek that’s into that sort of thing — will be released in stages but all devices scheduled to receive it within the next 10 days or so.
While it wasn’t noted in the changelog, we are expecting Sprint and Samsung to take out the Carrier IQ software from the device with this update. Sprint and HTC have already done it on the EVO family of devices. If you get the update, go into Manage applications and see if you still see Carrier IQ in there, let us know in the comments whether it’s there or not. Also whether the update made your device faster or not.
