Ok, so I've seen this question asked I don't know how many times in each Rom at the Dev Section and also in the General Forum so I decided to make a quick guide.

- If you're on any ROM or even stock rooted and get prompted to update to the new update you can do a couple things.

1.- If you don't already have Titanium Back up, Download it from the market and FREEZE Device Management. Once you freeze it just reboot and the update will go away. I was going to recommend Bloat Freezer, but I couldn't find it on the Market, not sure what's going on with that.
This is the easiest step * ** *

Titanium Backup - https://market.android.com/search?q=...back+up&c=apps
*An alternative would be using Root Explorer -
Under System/ App/ wssyncmldm.apk Just delete.

Root Explorer - https://market.android.com/search?q=...xplorer&c=apps

2.- If you must have the update for some reason and don't want to just flash a ROM that's already 2.3.6, then it's best to go back to stock. UPDATE will not work unless you have STOCK RECOVERY on your phone.

To go back to stock refer to this Guide made by Jangst123.
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1321811

3.- You can also try to flash your nandroid backup and then Odin the stock recovery. You also might need the stock kernel if you had a custom one installed, in this case flash Stock kernel first before your nandroid.

Stock Kernel - http://dl.dropbox.com/u/2510030/kernel-stock.zip

4.- If you're only rooted with the stock Rom you can try to update without doing anything, but you will lose Root. There has been reports that it has worked for some, but not for others.
Be Careful with what you decide to do!!

== The update you are getting is NOT ICS, it is an update to 2.3.6 and for the Wifi Calling App. == In order for Wifi calling to work you MUST have the New Sim card that came with the phone. If you don't have one go to your T-mobile store and get one. =

*** If you rather just get the Baseband/Modem by itself then you can get it from here http://rootzwiki.com/topic/11883-odi...-kang12142011/
Thanks to Team Kang.

Hope this HELPS, now if people only used the SEARCH engine. I think I'm going to make a guide on how to use it, LOL.

*I am not responsible if you damage your expensive phone in any way. Use this guide at your own risk.*

Or....... just use free es file explorer on market ( don't forget to enable root under its settings ) and backup/delete both wssync apk's under /system/app. Then reboot :)

Takes less than 2 minutes and can be done without odin, firmware flashing, ect

Bloat Freezer is definitely not an app to use for freezing the Device management app anymore. An earlier forum post pointed out that it's been pulled from the market, and as this article cites, with good reason. Alternatives suggested are SystemCleanup, NoBloat, and as the OP pointed out, Titanium Backup.

Good Luck..

Hi, i went back to stock everything, and i haven't had a prompt for the update yet. I updated previously, is that the reason why?

Ok what if the next update is ICS and i'm rooted and I want to update? Will it mess anything up if It tries to update?
