Default I want to re-enable OTA updates for GS4.

Hi,
I'm running a stock rooted GS4, but I deleted the VZW SDM apk that gives the OTA updates. Now whenever I try to update my phone; it just crashes and nothing happens. Does anyone know where I can find that apk file to try and re-enable them?

Thanks.

Thanks.

you can not take OTA if your phone is rooted....the phone must be 100% stock with no frozen files and no missing files. Your best bet is to use odin

It'll definitely crash after removing SDM then trying to update with it lol

Like Bob just hop into Odin and use that... Very easy
