    I woke up to find an update is ready to install. Was hoping, but I was a quickie and just a minor update. Hope it is one of the preparatory fix updates, so as to install Lollipop.

    They did this with the Note 4 too. My husband's Note 4 updated to 4.4 and then the next day it updated to Lollipop. Fingers crossed!

    Both my Note Edge and my husband's Note 4 did that too oddly. Restarted both phones and then they updated to 4.4 with no prob.

    This update is definitely in preparation for lollipop. Just some nerd talk... When this device first came out, if you go under developers options you had the option to switch from dalvik to art runtime but it didn't work. This update allows you to switch to art runtime permanently (don't do it though, things didn't work properly for me.). As you know, lollipop defaults at art runtime so it's definitely coming.

    Art runtime in layman's terms is the way Android opens up applications and stores them. Art runtime is supposed to be better battery life and apps open up quicker due to the way it is cached

    Yes, art didn't work originally.. But I won't test it now. Hopefully vzw is speedy in their release, I'm very envious of my moms note 4 with lollipop

    Verizon is usually last with updates but I have never had issues with the phone after.

    That's true, however they are getting much better about it. I remember the G2 didn't get KitKat until about 7+ months after it was released. But they are typically (not always) about quality and not quantity

    Not that it will be identical but I can tell you that Lollipop on the At&t Note Edge has been absolutely splendid this past week. Good luck to you guys.

    Any icon changes (like the leaked build way back when)? Or just equivalent/similar to note 4 update?

    I got an update for 4.4.4 but wanted the lollipop update instead. Any vzw'ers get lollipop yet?

    Lollipop does help with SD card access so I can understand wanting it.

    I checked this morning out of curiosity (about 7:30 AM EST) and Verizon software update failed saying it was unavailable. I checked again now (9:18 AM EST) and it's still saying that the service is temporarily unavailable. So they might be prepping for something today or their servers could just be down.

    Ditto. I checked again shortly after 10:00 AM EST and received the same message.
