after unlocking the boot loader and rooting, i got this notification that won't go away.

first what does it mean?
second, how make it disappear?

I understand I won't be receiving FOTAs, so be it.

thanks


P.S. that is not my personal phone. I'm still working on bootloader unlock 😐😱

use this NotificationsOff(root) app
Find it in the list and disable it HardwareStub Services

If you disable HardwareStub, also be aware that any of the peripherals (cooler, controller, etc) may not get firmware updates.

The notification sounded like you had a mix of firmware, such as installing a WW update while still using a CN baseband.
I did a full flash with raw and it was still showing, so I also used the Notifications Off app. Mind that I bought the tencent version flashed to global

I'm not sure what causes the notification, since I also have a Tencent device on the WW firmware. I do know that one of the newer firmwares does prompt to update the Aerocooler firmware, though. If you get one, make sure to at least temporarily enable the notification for the update.

So I got intrigued about what my build.prop values are so I opened it, and noticed that some properties about build and model are still set to their chinese values.

What's your build.prop values? Do I need to change these values to remove the notification without disabling HardwareStubServices?
