This over-the-air update it is known as the GRJ90 software update. Sprint, Samsung and Google have joined their forces and had been hard working putting together this OTA update that will bring several fixes about the connectivity issues. Lately, Sprint has made similar moves with other Android-based devices on its airwaves, pushing out updates to all owners of a specific device in only a few days after starting the roll-out.
