I've been getting Notifications asking me if I want to Update or Postpone. I have been postponing the Update, but now I can no longer Postpone the Update.

Is there a way to get rid of the Update File which I already downloaded to my Note 3, before it Automatically Updates .... or am I stuck with KitKat no matter what?

Tech Support told me to Backup whatever I can ..... I thought the Update was JellyBean. I did NOT want KitKat ... !!!

If I'm stuck with KitKat, how can I Backup third party apps, and also Backup Nova Launcher Prime Settings and TouchWiz Launcher Settings. I have spent a lot of time creating numerous folders with all my app, and even Shortcuts. I hope I do not have to go back to the PlayStore and download so many Apps all over again ......

I have already moved all the Apps that I can to the SD card, but many Apps cannot be moved to the SD card.

Help .... !!!!!

Where is the file located, I'm not sure either, but it should be somewhere inside internal SD card. If you can't find it, means they hide it under root access.
To be frank, Kitkat is not so bad and better than JB in my personal opinion. But yes, when you flash Kitkat from Jb, you sure will loose all the apps & data inside internal SD. Because it will require you to do full wipe / factory reset after flashing. Eventhough it never wipe/ask you to wipe, advisable to wipe them manually / factory reset manually from stock recovery after flashing is finished (this to avoid any problems which has reported by many users who never do full wipe / factory reset after upgrading to 4.4.2).

And to be frank, eventhough now you are moving your installed apps to sd card, there won't be any use, because after the full wipe which I mentioned above, all apps & data would be gone. You might still have the folders & files inside your sd card for those apps you move to sd card. But still you don't have the apps (apk which is stored under /system/apps). So you will still have to install it manually, and then do all the "setting" which you have mentioned earlier.

Good luck.
