Minor update for the Verizon Samsung OMNIA II available; can cause bricking
Still early in its lifecycle, Verizon’s Samsung OMNIA II is already getting a radio firmware update that aims to help with dropped calls. You’d think that this would be like any other update you’ve probably performed on other handsets in the past right? Actually, there’s a good chance of something terribly going wrong if you don’t follow the directions exactly as described. If you unfortunately decide to take the task on by yourself hastily, you may find yourself with nothing but a large paper weight afterwards. Some users have reported bricking their smartphones during the whole process – so it’s imperative to comprehend the instructions. One thing strange about it is that the update itself doesn’t work on computers running Window 7 – only XP is supported. If all is done correctly, you’ll find yourself with a perfectly working handset with hopefully less dropped calls.
