I wonder if the update is different than the firmware from LG? I installed 10g directly from LG and still have WiFi Calling issues where it disconnects when the phone sleeps and calls don't come through.

I dont get why its taking this long to get kit kat on our phones.

I have a friend who is korean, and he said they came out with the kit kat not long after the phone came out in Korea...

I think I could figure out how to do this, if only I knew what the fingerprint of the update was. If you figure it out make sure to update and let us know!

I don't want to take the update as I'm running the Energy rom on a D800 with TWRP, so, always a chance it may break something.

I did reset google services framework data for now and that removed notification, but, of course it will be back in time.

i did the upgrade this morning. Wifi connectivity is faster, data seems more reliable so far. phone feels a little snappier. the settings menu's are grouped now compared to before. also when streaming music via bluetooth, if I get ANY NOTIFICATION with sound it stops playing music and doesnt resume again until i go into pandora or play music and press play manually. Its kinda like how the sgs3 and sgs4 stop the music for a text and then continue but this one doesnt continue. this also applies to streaming bluetooth audio and scrolling through instagram. this big did NOT exist before this update.

Im really temped to go back to the original shipped software just because of that audio stopping being annoying.

I decided to stay pre-ota until official kit kat rolls out.
Since this is very minor update, also keeping in mind with some other problems with the update that ive read about, i didnt want to get rid of twrp, get the ota, and spend hours setting my phone up the way i like it...

Honestly, i currently have great battery life, phone is fast enough for me, and i never had any sort of knock on issues that other people have mentioned in this thread.

So... yea. Im staying

I think this should work to disable the notification and prevent the update from d/l'ing, but, you will need root and seperate software. Going to test it myself now and will update shortly.

It was originally written for the Nexus 7, but, the D801 uses Google Services framework for updates also, which is why we can't just 'freeze' the update app like you can on other carriers. The original post was made here... http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2429820

Here is how I disabled the upgrade prompt on the Nexus 7 grouper wifi 4.2.2 - You of course need to be rooted.

Get Autorun Manager from the market - https://play.google.com/store/apps/d....autorun&hl=en or http://goo.gl/xdLmO

Launch Autorun Manager, select Advanced mode.

Click the wrench, check off Show system entries and Enable system app disable.

Click the refresh icon to reload the process list.

Search for "systemupdate" and open the Google Services Framework entry.

Uncheck com.google.android.gsf.update.SystemUpdateService$ Receiver

*For me, this was the very last one in the list under Google Services Framework*

Reboot your *phone* and be nag free.


Edit - Market update notifications for apps is functioning normally.

Did the OTA update tonight and after the reboot my touchscreen will not work. Can't unlock the phone. Can't do anything. Tried a soft reboot and nothing.

so to sum the update up (updated with the prerooted one from the t-mobile thread without any issues): wifi/data connection seems more reliable, they fixed the fonts, brightness slider stays put once auto brightness is enabled (the annoying lower brightness screen auto adjustment seems to be gone too!), touch screen issues (which i had very rarely to begin with) are not there anymore but surely this needs more testing.

The auto brightness on my phone has gone to **** since I've installed this update. My screen is in a perpetual state of dim now and I've had to turn off auto brightness entirely.
