You might want to give the guys a little more info like what ROM you're running and such.

It looks like your modem was updated. FF19 is new I think. I may be wrong because I'm not using a Prevail any longer but I'm pretty sure that's what's up.

Yes i received the same thing. However I am rooted and I already know that I can't install update. But with the latest tower troubles in Toledo, I am curious if this update would improve service. If so, how might i go about updating....

Anyone that has the update, please snag it and upload it.
It should be in /cache (in downloads folder, i believe)

If Nobody gets it for you, i'm still on 3.6 with the updates disabled my way. I'll turn back off and see if updates show up and get it. May work and may not, we'll see.

Nothing is currently listed as official.

edit: I seem to get updates 7-10 days after others. I guess I am OK with this as I learn to/not allow while waiting.

First, i looked for this update all over on my SD card and internal file system. to no avail. my phone keeps asking for me to update but everytime i try the phone reboots and gives me a yellow triangle with an '!' in the middle. and freezes. maybe someone can help me out with that.

other than that i found this on samsungs website.....

Default I was wrong...

the update did not install. I got the notification again yesterday.

my guess is that this update will, among other things, change teh google search behavior in response to a recently announced court ruling in a case brought by apple.

Same here, I was receiving a system update notice. I'm rooted with FE16 and have link2sd installed. Decided what the heck, worst case scenerio is I will have to reinstall some apps and reroot phone.


Well,.................. Nothing happened. Said my system is currently up to date

Was expecting something to happen. But at least I got rid of the notification.

Hi Everyone,

I did the update today but why it goes from Android 2.6.35.7 to 2.3.6 that makes NO sense at all. It should be going forward instead of going backwards.

2.6.35.7 is your kernel version.
2.3.6 is your Android platform version.

Hey, i used odin to update my rooted prevail, using FF19 Rooted+CWM and after the update, it seemed like its a root error because i tried using my wifi tether, and tried to use root browser to delete bloatware and anything i do involving root i keep gettin a superuser activity error message, basically it wont give any apps root permissions, its there something wrong with update itself?

You CAN disable the updates. It's VERY simple.

You just need root

Need elementary answer to get rid of system updates

that is the easiest way with an app or you can just use a file explorer(which you already most likely have) and just delete the folders and stuff for updates and never worry again. i'm on 3.6 no autostarts and don't get any system updates ever. will work on any mod.
