If you are on a T-mobile based rom, the way to 'freeze' the update is different than the others.

T-mobile roms use 'Google Services Framework' for the update, and obviously you can't freeze that app.

So, what you do is d/l a program called 'Autorun Manager'. Then inside that program, scroll down to 'Google Services Framework' and disable 1 receiver.

The one you want to disable is called 'com.google.gsf.update.SytemUpdateService$Receiver ' Just disable that (by unchecking it) and then reboot. You will not receive a notification to update ever again.

Also, go into the folder /cache and delete the FOTA d/l. You will need R/W permissions in the root directory to do this. So use whichever file manager you prefer for that.

The FOTA d/l is easy to spot, it's a 150mb approximately zip file with a bunch of chars and should be the only file in that directory. There are a few folders as well, but, ignore them and just delete the 1 file.

I'm in the same situation - reverted back to stock rooted with twrp recovery and now boot back to recovery. I haven's used adb much, but do know how to open the cmd window in the adb directory on my computer and it appears I'm connected to my d800. However, when I run the adb devices command I see the device code and recovery listed. When I type the first line of the code in the first post, adb shell, I get ~ # ←[6n and can't type in any additional commands.

Am I missing a step - or just not understanding the process??

UPDATE - Nevermind - I just typed in the command dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/fota using TWRP's Terminal Command and the phone booted right up to Clean Rom.

Thanks vegasdavek for your repost on this fix!

original post of this thread in hopes of saving someone else a lot of time trying to find that extra line of code burried in the other thread.

Thanks, found this now, only after I already fixed my issue, but this is useful. Perhaps you should also update it to reflect it can be done with the Terminal in TWRP..
