AT&T rolling out Stagefright patch for LG G4
Still worried about the Stagefright vulnerability that could grant attackers control over your device with a simple MMS message? This issue left 95% of all Android users susceptible to attacks, but carriers and manufacturers have been quick to patch it up. It’s taking some companies more time than others, though.
Life is finally good again fore LG G4 users on AT&T. The carrier has started pushing out the Stagefright patch, taking many of you back to digital safety. It comes in the form of an OTA software update and seems to feature no other extra improvements.
All you need is enough battery life to go through the process and a stable WiFi connection for downloading the data. Got that set up? Simply wait for the upgrade notification to show up. You can also go ahead and check for updates in the settings, just in case the device is taking a little longer than it should. Do keep in mind these updates tend to roll out periodically, though, so try not to smash your screen.
Once all is said and done, you should be left with Android 5.1 Lollipop on software version H81010l. The file is 46.7 MB, so make sure you have enough space too. Enjoy your peace of mind!
