If you have a root can delete FWUpgrade.apk
Thanks for all your help.. Was able to use the ES File Explorer (Root) to find the FWUpgrade.apk and rename it.
Could not find the update.zip file anywhere. Ran a search.
The other items i found while researching this is set the permissions to 0 on /data/fota then reboot. Even though it seems to auto reset them to 771 it seems to clear that folder of anything hidden and hasn't bugged me since.
Also changed the following in /system/app folder from .apk to .apk.bak
- FotaClient.apk -> FotaClient.apk.bak
- FWUpgrade.apk -> FWUpgrade.apk.bak <- Even with just those 2 disabled it still bugged me about updating.
- wssyncmlnps.apk -> wssyncmlnps.apk.bak
Then last thing that seemed to have helped is, to disable services utilizing the ES Task Manager -> Startup Manager and disabling just about all the samsung SyncAdapter, samsung account, as it seems to rename/renable wssyncmlnps.apk (like a virus). Also Disable "Software update".
This seems to have worked..
I really wish samsung/google would stop trying to be viral with their firmwares.
