While most manufacturers have finished sending out the #Stagefright patch for their devices by now, #NVIDIA has just sent out the update to its #ShieldTablet, putting the customers at ease once and for all. The update will block any malicious content from entering your device via MMS.
In the wake of these bugs, Google, Samsung and LG promised to send out monthly security updates to their devices to patch any pertinent issues that might have surfaced over a month’s duration. In addition to patching the Stagefright vulnerability, NVIDIA is also bringing some other changes with the update, we’ve listed them out below for your perusal:
- Security patch for Stagefright
- Stability and performance improvements
- System wide optimizations and fixes, including battery performance and Netflix playback
- SHIELD Wireless Controller Firmware update
The update should hit your devices over the air, so be on the lookout for a notification. There won’t be any visual changes with the update however, so don’t raise your hopes as far as UI improvements are concerned.
