Hello, I'm a rooted bootloader locked 98.18.94/4.1.2

It doesn't sound like I want to put on the kitkat update.. (it sounds bad)

I got my first prompt for it yesterday.. so how do I shutdown the program that will prompt me? or the name?

Okay looks like I created my own solution.. borrowing from I executed his 2nd version of the shell script.. but I decided to stop it from removing facebook and chrome.. (no big deal... I mean you could just playstore re-install them right? )

So whatever program? or programs? it is.. that causes the update.. seems to be dead now.

So here's my script code if that helps.. (I had to modify his for some strange reason.. the ./system/app was erroring out)

Code:

All I can tell you is.. it's 1 of the above files.. so you can experiment.. maybe figure out which one?

I haven't seen it since.. I applied the above script.. so I definitely got it And so far no negative side effects that I can recall..?
