Default [Q] Preventing Upgrade Prompt to 4.3???

I did the upgrade to 4.3 and HATE it. It took quite a while but I was able to get back to stock MC2. I keep getting the notification about the system software upgrade and have choose "install later" 3 times and it stops prompting me for a little while but then it just starts reminding me again. Is there a way to STOP my Sprint Note 2 from doing this? or better yet a way to stop my phone from even looking for a system software upgrade? I am rooted but don't have any idea how to do this or if there is even a way to. Any ideas???

you need to flash a modified build prop, or you can use rom toolbox to edit it also.

Do a search, or make a flashable with only the build prop, edit the build/version and flash/reboot...

This "tricks" the phone into thinking it has the latest version = no more update notices...
Every time you don't use search, a kitten, bunny, baby turtle, and fuzzy Harp Seal are killed.

Wondering the same thing but what build/version should it be updated to to prevent the update notice?

This is how i've manually stopped OTA notifications...

Disable OTA Update Notification, use an app like Root Explorer, go to

/system/etc/security/otacerts.zip

rename to otacerts.zip to otacerts.zip.bak and reboot.
