Epix win? Samsung pushes out new patch for the Epix

Updated Dec 19th, 2018 6:20PM EST

Epix users, it looks like it may finally be your time to shine. For those who haven’t been following the story, AT&T’s Samsung Epix had issues. Samsung pushed out a patch to resolve said issues but it only caused more issues. After promising to address the new problems in early May, Samsung has just pushed out a new ROM for the Epix that addresses the following:

  • ”Slog Dump” Fix: On certain circumstances, the handset may report a “Slog Dump” error message. This software provides an update to the network layer which prevents the problem from occurring.
  • Missed Email Audio Notifications:  A previously released cab file for notifications is now included this firmware version. This enables the EPIX to provide audible notifications alerts for your emails when the device enters an unattended power saving mode.
  • Outlook Notes SSP Support:  The update contains the ability to synchronize the popular Notes feature available within Microsoft Outlook.
  • Ascending Ringtone: Ringtone behavior design was set to ascending/escalating volume during inbound call regardless of setting specified. With this update, the handset will act in accordance to the volume settings selected.

Users also report that the major issue brought about by the initial Slog Dump patch — phones freezing on outbound calls — is now resolved as well. Beyond that, it looks like the only old bug still present is an issue with LED notifications but with all of the other issues that have been resolved, we doubt Epix users will be too upset.

Thanks, Amir!
