Samsung officially released the Android 6.0.1 update for the Verizon variant of the Galaxy Note 5 (SM-N920V). This is the first major update received by this device, and also the fourth update received after officially released in August 2015. This could be the most awaited update by its users, as this phablet device will become more useful with Marshmallow OS that has many new impressive features. Unfortunately, there is still no good news about root for Verizon Galaxy Note5.
This update brings N920VVRU2BPB2 software version that has a lot of new features, including “Now on Tap” to get useful information with a single tap, “Doze” for to automatically put your device in a sleep state to save battery, and enhanced permissions for better security. Besides bringing the updated OS, it’s also provide new features and improvements such as Wi-Fi calling features that you can reach through Advanced calling options, better accessibility in Live broadcast, new app icons and folder designs and much more.
Regarding root, it seems that we won’t be able to get in the near future, as we all know, Verizon has been locked this phone, so it will be difficult for developers to make an attempt to gain superuser privileges. Another effort to gain temporary root that should be easily done with the help Kingroot app also doesn’t work.
Besides, it’s coming with a bootloader that is locked tight, the Verizon variants of Note5 also include additional security called KNOX, it’s also experienced on the AT&T variants. This security feature is very useful for those who are very concerned about its device’s security and privacy, but on the other hand, it make the geek users a little bit frustrated. Now, we had to wait until someone discover a working tool to help us gain superuser access.
