Angry How to disable Jelly Bean Update ??

Hello, this will come as a strange question , but is there a way to disable the new jellybean update ?

The problem is the following.
My grandfather of 81 y is using this tablet , for him it's very difficult to use , he's now almost customized to ICS so an upgrade would mean another learning process , and that not possible for him.
Since this morning i've got the message that there is a new version to install and normally i would enjoy this but he doesn't.

So who can help me ?

Just disable automatic software update and live in peace. Don't tap the update notification ever.

You could also freeze or uninstall updater.apk.
