I have a Verizon non dev, locked bootloader, rooted phone running 4.4. Very happy with it.

Just automatically downloaded 4.4.2, but with all the horror stories i don't want to install it. Keep getting stupid reminders

Any way to get it off my phone and stop reminders?

Or any totally safe way to install it? Sounds like getting rid of xposed might do it...

Thanks!

I also just downloaded root explorer, but couldn't find the file you mentioned. Is it in a folder?

I just disabled "updater" in the app list.


Edit:
Nevermind, that only worked for the day, this morning it started trying to update again.
