Hmm, that is odd. I haven't tried to install/apply the uodate/patch until i find information on what its actually "patching" if it is patching anything at all. I dont believe it is othere than changing the version number and patch date but that's just my thoughts based on what im noticing the phone to oddly atart doing aince the upcoming US electios have started.
I believe this phones unpatched OS exploits are being exploited based on some triggers done/viewed. I locked down all the apps and removed/disabled permissions that arent necessary for aome apps to work, ie.the wireless update, the launcher and a few other questionable factory apps,ibdis that since day one and now a few months later during US elections, i hear echoes on all vooce calling and data use during the calls started (wireless (voip) calling is off. I do know that some of the factory apps have been flagged as suspicious in the past.
Over all, device is subpar/not good at all per my standards. Really hoping a legit root is done for this device so i van get rid of the load or before the Asus ROG Phone II comes our, thats will ne my next device. And will trash/sell this s90 junk. My BlackBerry PRIV is still better than this s90. I actually had high hopes for the s90.
