That's interesting. Based on what I read, upgrading to 4.4 via Odin will trip Knox. I had to use a different root method - the one that require downloading an app on my Mac. I forgot what it's called now..

Hello my note 3 is on 4.3 baseband MI7 and recently I have been getting a message to update to 4.4.2. I am getting annoyed with this message as I get it several times a day. Should I just upgrade or is there a way to stop this message from popping up?

Did you click the update software selection in the settings or did it just prompt you to update even though you didn't do anything at all? Also has it actually downloaded the software yet or is it just telling you that the software is available? If you don't care about SD write access you could update. I personally will never update to Kit Kat because I lose too much functionality and gain nothing. Try deleting the cache and if worst comes to worst you can factory reset your phone. You can also turn off one of the system update apps. I never got a notification update after I turned that off. I hope you can keep Kit Kat off your phone. It won't be the same if you update and you can NEVER go back.

I can't get the screenshot I took to work but It say congratulations T mobile has sent you a new software update.4.4.2 Kit Kat It just prompted me one day to update and ever since then I get this message 2 to 3 times a day. My phone works fine but the message is getting annoying asking if I want to start or postpone. Do you think resetting my phone will get rid of this message? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

You can get it to stop by changing the build.prop file and entering a higher version number. I don't recall the exact details, but it should be easy enough to locate. You have to be root however.

I liked Kitkat (rooted). I feel it is faster, smoother, more stable, better Google Now (Yes, I use it a lot), better battery life (might just be placebo). Of course, since I am rooted, I have the SD fix too, and not to mention the amazing xposed modules. The best thing is, if you are still in 4.3, you can root without tripping knox warranty and update to have rooted kitkat. I gained a lot and lost nothing Even the stupid ISIS works.
