Have a ATT S3 running 4.1.2 / I747UCDMG2.

I got the popup for the OTA update which advised if I go to wifi it will download. I did not hit continue and just hit the home button.

I do not have root, and want to make sure I do not get the update... Any suggestions? Would disabling "Google services framework" work?

Thank you in advance.

What I did to avoid the 4.3 update on my new phone on 4.1.2 and my wife's phone was to allow it to download, allow it to begin instalation when it got to 50 % I pulled the battery and reboot it. It worked that way for me on two phones without root.

Has anyone else done this? I don't get notifications for it anymore.

Thank you in advance.

If you installed a custom recovery OTA will terminate between the download & installation. It installs via recovery & requires stock.
If you try this be ready with Theramsey's move just in case.
