Good morning!! I have the verizon galaxy s3 i535 which is rooted and has clockworkmod but the weird thing is that it is currently downloading a software update right now which I believe is 4.3. Is this safe for it to do? Should I stop it? It's on 10 percent and going really slow but I need advice ASAP PLEASE!!!!

And no, it will fail. Rooting does not stop the notification or attempts to update.

If you do not want custom roms anymore, then accept the OTA.

If you want to continue using custom roms then do not allow the OTA to install. Freeze the system app "sdm 1.0" using Titanium Backup OR rename it to "sdm 1.0.bak" using a file explorer. This will cause your Software Update setting to force close anytime you try to manually check for updates. Now, go to /Cache and delete the in /FOTA
