My phone picked an update this morning, no idea what is in the update as it wouldn't tell me, Waiting for "Migrating data" to finish and I'll see.

No notes to say what has changed after the update, after a quick search on the internet I can't see anything about an update.

Anyone got any info?

I don't have a Samsung but did the update say it was from Samsung specifically? I'm guessing it could be a firmware update probably, could be getting ready for the next GDR2 OS update. To date we either see minor firmware updates before or after OS updates.

Too late to know what your old firmware version was, I'm guessing it updated the firmware, bootloader and radio etc. Minor reliability and performance fixes I bet.
