Update your Sprint Galaxy S6 edge now to build version G925PVPU2BOGA as the update now equipped with Google security patches to get rid of the surrounding Stagefright bug in some infected  apps and websites that was rigged to bug any Android smartphones and tablets.  Good thing to know that Sprint Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge have to receive it first in hand, while on the other hand, we are also expecting all other major U.S. carrier that might also follow soon.

Earlier today, Sprint has announced the release of the new update on Galaxy S6 (SM-G920P) that will bump up the software build version to G920PVPU2BOGA. Then it is also followed with another announcement for the Galaxy S6 edge devices.  The update will  also then bump the software version from  G925PVPU2BOFE to G925PVPU2BOGA.

The Stagefright affects almost all smartphones and tablets that have had had downloaded an infected application and or those who have visited a website that was being rigged to bug an Android phone.

Here are the technical details:
Android version: 5.1.1
Baseband version: G925PVPU2BOGA
Kernel version: 3.10.61
Build number: LMY47X.G925PVPU2BOGA

Google Security Patch (Stagefright)
  • Software updates may be released in stages and can take several days for delivery.
  • If prompted that an update is available, follow the onscreen instructions to complete the installation.

The G925PVPU2BOGA update weighs at just around 53MB in file size.  It is a minor OTA update compared to the previous ones, but everyone must take the update to get rid of the Stagefright bug. Sprint is sending the G920PVPU2BOGA update out in waves from today August 5th and might only end until all devices receive the update that usually run at the span of two weeks.

So if you don't get the notification yet, you may just keep on checking by going into the phone's Settings>About device>Check for an update. The firmware server refreshes once in every hour, so just continue doing it until it says that the update is available for download.
Also, keep in mind that you cannot get the update if you have rooted or have a modified system running on your device.  Your device must have to be still run with official firmware in the system.
