The update downloaded itself overnight and I'm tired of looking at the notification. I'm currently away from home for work and have no access to a computer. Does anyone know the file directory where the update downloads to so I can just manually delete it? I'm on a galaxy s4 model SCH-I545, baseband I545VRUEMK2, kernel 3.4.0. I'm not the greatest at this so I'm sorry if I left out needed details.

The update zip is stored in /cache/fota/OTAPkg.zip

If you can freeze the SDM app it won't try to install it or re-download it.

Is it as simple as going into Titanium Backup and freezing the app SDM? I found it in there and froze it. I hope it was that easy!

Yup you can freeze FWupgrade too but sdm should be enough.

Wow. I have been putting up with that stupid update seems like a month, but I'm sure just a couple of weeks. I love TB. I bought it and use it one every single rooted device I have. Which is a lot! LOL!!!
