Update fix for AT&Ts latest update
I got a Software Update Available text a few times the past month for my Samsung Galaxy SII. After reading the horrendous reviews here of it causing crashes, freezes, and general havoc, I did NOT want that 'update'. This morning, when I had some critical work to do and the battery was in the yellow zone, it gave me no choice...it installed itself.
Sho nuff, for the first time in over a year I've had this phone, it's wreaklng havoc. I fully charge the battery and three hours later - with no phone calls, no bluetooth, no WiFi, it won't turn on. Then I take the battery out for a minute and sometimes it'll come back on. Then two hours later it say "battery critically low..." This absurd. We're forced by our own providers to install malevolent software?!
So I went to the AT&T store and one rep told me it's google's thing and to wait for the AT&T to put out the fix. Another rep told me a few seconds later that I can do a search for it and there's some kinds code like ##* or sumpthin to "force" it to install. Any clues about this here?
