Stop System Update OTA notifications on Note 2?

I am going bonkers with this persistent System Update OTA on my Samsung Galaxy Note 2. I do not want to accept the update, as it removes my Write PRL feature that I use frequently.

 

I am willing to root it, but I want to wait until I return from my vacation in two weeks. I am going to do some device testing on my vacation, and I want a pure stock experience during that testing. However, I want the obnoxious notifications to go away. They were initially appearing once per day, then a few times per day, then hourly. Now it seems like the notification is there with a pop up window that has to be cleared every 5 minutes.

 

If anyone knows of any way to get that cleared and go away, I'd be very happy. I have had an update on my Nexus 4 since December that I have refused to take (because I lose LTE capability), and it just reminds me once per day and leaves an icon on my top bar. I can handle that. It's the annoying in your face notifications that Samsung keeps pushing that is driving me bonkers!

Without rooting you can't change any of the system files to stop the update notification process. With root there are several ways of course.

 

On a side note, I do know the latest baseband/update has the LTE scan timers changed plus I found the threshold has been relaxed which allows the device to use LTE in more places even though it is very marginal signal. So I do highly recommend the update to any Note2 and S3 users but of course it does remove the PRL Write option.

Any chance you will make the digiblur rom for the GS3? :)

Digi, was your fix you made on XDA just a flashable that restored a missing .apk?

 

If thats the case, maybe update to the latest, flash recovery so the patch can be flashed then revert back to stock recovery?

I would love to but I don't have an S3 to test with and not sure I feel comfortable about modding things in the blind. Not touching the wife's S3. I would get blamed if anything is wrong with it, but I still get blamed if something is "different" / doesn't work right from an OTA update!

 

Maybe I could whip up something and let you guys toy around with it and test it. It would just be a slow process.

The fix changes the HiddenMenu.apk file, never reverted to stock recovery except with an entire stock reflash.

I'd just root it. I know once you deny the update when rooted(if you even get the update via OTA). It won't show again. I know With root explorere I deleted play magazine and some apps. Never got the OTA on my GS3

Ever since I rooted my GS3 it would bug me the same way until I told it to update. When I do the update fails(error related to smartdevicemanager.apk i think?) then it goes away for a week. Id like to know how to either fix it to update or stop the message aswell..

Might be a stupid notion but why not use the toolbox to unroot then do the update and re root?

    • August update finally arrived for S22+ unlocked tonight 👍
    • You also snagged a shot of the new oDAS in there, too.    I also spotted one while on LIRR above Atlantic Ave. They’re starting to really get rolled out now.
    • I have added T-Mobile eNB 879366, a Sprint convert site, to the list of gig+ sites, as I was able to break the 800 Mbps ceiling with it. I'm still trying to understand the DAS mess at LGA and locate them, but the bad thing about it is inside the terminals I can occasionally pick up the macros inside. It anchors 5G, which is great for a speed boost, but occasionally data hangs because my device is having a handoff frenzy trying to pick the best macro and/or band for the 5G connection.   I have spotted 2 more Dish sites, one on the corner of Church Avenue and East 16th (photo below), and the other is an in progress site co-located with Verizon eNB 81069.   At Verizon eNB 81069, the ports on the Dish panel weren't connected yet, brand new racks were being used on the roof Verizon is on, and it looks like Sprint's equip is still up on the building next door.
    • Neat!  Thanks.  Most of my issues at the moment are from inexperience.  I've never used AT commands and I'm bad at Python.  I'm not really sure what the best way is to send AT commands to the modem; socat seems to work, and there are Python libraries that should do it, but I don't really know what I'm doing.  - Trip
    • If you need any assistance, firmware or drivers with the radio; I am involved in Quectel's US based sales and field application engineer programs. I am working on the x62 reference RM520/N right now. They are a really fun product to work with.
