It was just yesterday when Samsung made available a new software update known as I9300XXELLA to their flagship Galaxy S3, and it has been confirmed by those who have already installed this particular update that it will be able to remedy whatever issues and vulnerabilities that the Exynos 4 was exposed to earlier. The security flaw that was located in the kernel that made the device R/W by all users, apps as well as gave access to full Physical Memory, has been fixed to cut the long story short.
Now that this particular security loophole has been patched, does it mean that the sudden death issue which we talked about earlier this year has also been fixed? Perhaps, but there has been no confirmation on the ground just yet that this issue has been resolved, and we can only stay still and look towards Samsung for a full and official statement on the situation. We hang on with dogged anticipation towards a future software update, and hope that once and for all, all major issues surrounding the Galaxy S3 would be squashed. For good.
