Freeze via Titanium Backup: FWUpgrade.apk and SDM.apk
Use Root Browser or Root File Manager to:
Rename file: /etc/security/otacerts.zip to otacerts.zip.bak
Rename file: /system/app/ wssyncmlnps.apk to wssyncmlnps.apk.bak
Then do the following:
1. Open Root Browser or Root File Manager
2. Navigate to data/fota
3. Long Press and select Permissions
4. Uncheck all boxes making it 0000
The last bit is overkill, but you can do it if the OCD kicks in.
Just Say No to root-killing updates
But I'm not rooted. In was going to root this weekend dince the phone just arrived last night. It arrived without the update. I have declined it, but downloaded anyways.
Unrooted, can I delete this?
Should I delete this, or just try to root tonight?
If I root tonight, what is the fastest way to just root so I can follow the instructions above?
Thanks in advance.
