[Q] New update notification, how to hide? I don't want to lose my MJ7 root.
Hi all, I'm pretty new here. I've been a longtime iPhone/jailbreak user, switched to Android last month and really happy with the freedom of customization this device has afforded me. I've been reading and learning a lot, and I have some questions. I hope you'll be able to help.
I now have a Verizon Galaxy S4. I followed these excellent instructions
, and am now rooted on 4.3 (MJ7) and am liking it quite a bit.
But as of yesterday I've started to see alerts about a "Software Update Ready to install."
I asked a friend who has the same phone and he said he updated, and went from 4.3... to 4.3. He couldn't tell what had changed (if anything.)
So here are my questions:
1) What is this new update all about? It seems like it's not 4.4 KitKat, it's just a small revision to 4.3 Jelly Bean. Is there any info out there about what it contains?
2) I know I shouldn't accept the update, as it would make me lose root. And I don't want to lose root, I need it for too many things. So, using Root Browser, I went into /cache/fota and moved "update.zip" to my SD card, thinking it would help. Then I rebooted. After a few minutes, the "Software update available" notification returned. How can I remove this? If I'm not supposed to accept this OTA update, I don't want to be nagged about it. I don't want to accidentally tap it.
3) Is there a way yet to accept this update, without losing root or bricking my device? If so, how?
Thanks for any answers, I appreciate it and am happy to be here.
