1. Basically, get AnyCut. It's not on the Play Store anymore and is kinda hard to find.
Here ya go: "can't use a link in my post 'cause I'm new"

2. Fire up AnyCut and create a new shortcut action, find "HiddenMenuWifiOffloading" and tap it. Go to your home screen and click it, change to Disabled.
I seem to be missing something and was wondering if someone could point me in the right direction.

I've downloaded Anycut, but when I fire it up, I get four options: Direct call, Direct Text message, Activity, and Make your own. I'm assuming that in order to create a new shortcut, I have to select "Make your own". However, this isn't working 'cause afterward, I can't find "HiddenMenuWifiOffloading" to tap. Am I on the right track, and if so, where do I find "HiddenMenuWifiOffloading" to tap?

Could someone please throw me a bone? Many thanks...

I just installed it on my phone and it works.

To the person above from me, select " Activity" and then a list will show up and scroll down until you see "HiddenMenuWifiOffloading". Click on that and it will create a shortcut.

Click on the shortcut and then hit disable and then OK.

Many thanks to wewin1 above. I also did a little more searching and found the below instructions that are much more detailed. Although, in my situation, I didn't have step 3. I went straight from opening Any Cut, to tapping on "Activity".

Hopefully, this gets rid of the annoying notificiations (time will tell). Thanks VWZ!

Instructions:

1. Download and install Any Cut
2. Open Any Cut
3. Tap "New shortcut"
4. Tap "Activity"
5. Scroll down the list to "HiddenMenuWifiOffload" and tap it
6. Tap OK
7. Go to your homescreen where the shortcut is located (it should look like a gear in front of a Windows dialog box)
8. Tap on the short cut.
9. Select "Disable WifiOffloading
10. Tap OK
11. A message will popup at the bottom of the screen that says "Wifi offloading is now disabled"
12. Tap the back button to exit from the WiFi offloading hidden menu.

The WiFi popup message is now disabled. You can delete the shortcut from your homescreen and uninstall Any Cut if you like (although I'd recommend keeping Any Cut).

OK - I got a new (probably refurb - I burned in my alarm clock on my 1st S3). know that this worked before - because I did it. No, when I get to Step #5 - I can't even find "HiddenMenuWifiOffload".

Any ideas? It's already nagging the #$@^ out of me. ..

This worked great when the phone was on ICS. Now, with the Jelly Bean update, HiddenMenuWifiOffload is not in the list. Any ideas?

Thanks!
