If you are rooted you can go into Titanium backup and Freeze SDM.

I just got my i545 and had the same issue. The new phone (bought off Ebay) has MJ7 and the 4.4 update was beating me to death.

I rooted with the method in the General forum sticky. Then, I paid for the Titanium Backup registration key. With that, I could freeze FWUpgrade.apk and SDM.apk. No more prompting.

I added Safestrap after that. use the 3.71 version linked in Hashcode's thread (Safestrap-JFLTEVZW-3.71.apk). With this, I could get the 4.3 to activate Hotspot tethering ( I am still on grandfathered Unlimited). Voila, everything works just the way i want it to.

I am unsure if I want to go to 4.4 at this point. I would eventually like to have CM11. But, with 4.3 and tethering working, I am pretty satisfied with this phone already. It is miles ahead of my HTC Thunderbolt.

You don't need safestrap for tethering but if it works it works right? 4.4 isn't anything special anyway and you'll probably never be able to flash CM or any AOSP ROM anyway.

no route to flash any CM or ASOP based ROMS unless you have a mdk base S4...
