Verizon Galaxy Note 3 (SM-N900V) has started receiving its first software update to build numbers version N900VVRUBMJ7 from previous build N900VVRUBMI9 . The VRUBMJ7 is still packed in Android 4.3 (Jelly Bean) and part of the ‘JSS15J’ firmware build series. However, this update has just arrived without any indication of what owners can expect after updating their device, but we have found that it brings improvements on connectivity and sound quality. Speaking of sound and connectivity issues, we also have seen this same update that rolled out on Sprint Galaxy Note 3, which has been acknowledge Galaxy Note 3 owners that they are experiencing constant dropping with WiFi while others are LTE connection issues. This certain issues has not just seen only happening in the U.S. but in-fact also happened in Europe regions, but again Samsung and carrier providers are now fixing this issues.
The rest of the stuff included of what this update are all about are not being specified, again, there are no official changelog posted yet. The VRUBMJ7 is now live and can be downloaded via software upgrade assistant or via over the air (OTA).

Anyway, software update rolled-out usually take in phases, and not everyone can get an update at same time. Lucky owners will just automatically received an update notification message saying that the update is now available for download. If you did not received any notification you can rather head your Galaxy note 3 Settings>> About Phone>> then lastly tap check for Software Update option. You can also download the Software Upgrade Assistance or Kies from Verizon or Samsung websites as an alternative to update manually using a computer.
For those devices that might have been rooted, you may experienced issues while updating your Note 3. You must also be aware that the Verizon Galaxy Note 3 carriers the KNOX and SELinux enforcement, that may blocked your devices from getting the official software updates. So better watch out for that and find some useful method on how to safely take the update for your rooted devices. Though, we have found some reports that there are some owners with rooted devices who successfully took the update, but there are some workaround that needs to consider before performing an update to this current build MJ7.
