If you care about root... for now... it is recommended to do this:

avoid all updates...

Hey thanks for the heads-up on this app!! If you could recommend other apps to disable with this app (pm me so the thread doesn't get cluttered with off topic feed) I'd greatly appreciate it!! Loved your ROMs back in my note edge days!! So worth the $1.49!!

When I first set up my phone, one of the options was to enable automatic updates or not. I chose not. Now the update sits in the task bar and occasionally makes me think that I have to install it. It gave me the option to postpone for about a week and now only the install option is available. No problem though because I just tap the back soft key and it goes away back to the task bar.

Thank you so much TEKHD! I definitely DON'T want to apply this update but no longer had the "later" option on the update pop-up.

p.s. - loved all your work on the Note 4 (which this phone has finally replaced)!!!

Just search for update and block the two that pops up.
And after postponing the update a few times it will normally install over night after a few days.

On my S8+ if I search for updates I get the following:
ConfigUpdate
KnoxAppsUpdateAgent
Security policy updates
Service provider update
TzDataBundleUpdater

I blocked "Service provider update"and I still received the last OTA from Tmobile. :crying:
