Hi all!

Is there any way to disable update notification message on Verizon GS5? Update is already downloaded.
I'm rooted and with some apps frozen. If I run update it fails.
So, actually more than one question...

I assume I can unfreeze everything and attempt to update. Is it going to break root? Is this going to be rootable after that update?

It is probably answered multiple times, but I cannot find definite, direct answer. So help will be appreciated!

You neglected to tell us how or what you searched for. It's almost impossible to miss all of the existing threads on the subject, don't know how you missed them but we don't know how, what or if you tried searching.

Google search: block update notifications verizon xda

Dozens of threads, asking and answering the same question.

dude everytime i come into a thread to help someone you're here telling people to search, just answer or ignore it, I admire your determination but it's annoying to see, 5,776,168 members ? Just change your sig to say use search first, there are plenty of them if you search for them

Chances are you won't be able to run it anyway, as you're rooted, just either remove it in titanium, or freeze it, or rename the update apk by putting a .bak on the end of the file name and the odex file too.

They would indeed be able to run it but since the update fails because VZW is able to determine if your rooted the update will fail every single time. I wouldn't worry too much about the update as VZW is finding ways to patch the exploits ie towelroot and the S3 with the upcoming patch will be unable to be rooted.

Sadly there are a lot of members who remind members to constantly search, a good majority of them don't even bother so that might be why he refers to it every single time

Everytime I reply to a thread, you follow with an opinion that is clearly in factual error. Your dedication to increasing your post count is impressive even though it contributes nothing constructive. You were accurate when you characterized yourself as annoying but that is a blight easily solved with a kill filter.

Of course he can run it, as the poster after you correctly observed. Root is sufficient to block the two main processes, the update app and the notification app. One just needs to note Verizon's habit of appending vzw to otherwise standard nomenclature.

Verizon can independently search for evidence of root leading to further notifications. And there is no assured way to block that eventuality.

So when i rooted my phone, my phone failed to even check for updates! All i'm saying about you is the fact that you tell every single person to search, although I get it, you are wasting your time, lastly you really can't call anybody annoying m8, I didn't characterize myself as annoying, what you do every single day is ridicule people for not using the search button you aren't even addressing me and i'm even tired of it.

This is Q+A, it's made for people to ask questions.

And about my post count, I think your math is off, I've been on XDA since 2010 (2007 actually different account) i'm on 3,658 posts, You've been on here for 1 year you have a third of my posts, so theoretically speaking and at the rate you sprout your posts, you will have surpassed my post count in less time than I did, for someone who attempts to sound smart you've had quite an oversight there.

Thanks, I wasn't able to update, I was speaking from my own experiences, and as I said to ffffffft there are over 5 million members on XDA, is he planning on warning everyone? There is a thread in every single section on XDA, telling people to search. I've been there and attempted to tell people to search, doesn't help, there will always be threads of the same question, telling noobs isn't going to change that.

Honestly VZW can search for root on my phone all they want but the truth of the matter is its my phone and I'll do whatever I want with it. I learned long ago to never take an ota from them. Rooting isn't against the law so screw them

Hopefully not, rooting and having a tinker is what makes android great, I dread to think how I would feel if I was forced into the world of Apple, think I might end up with windows mobile yea I don't want to think like that, long live rooting I say.

I've heard bad things about Verizon doing things to their phones, do you not have a third party retailer in the states? I know that in the UK most people, especially people who want to modify their handsets, will buy from Carphone warehouse or even phones 4 u. You basically end up with the international unlocked version of the handset, as it was intended. I made the mistake of getting my Z1 from EE, turned out that the bootloader couldn't be unlocked no matter what I did, so I bricked it and sent it off for repair through Carphone, got a fully unlocked brand new handset back in five days.
