How to cancel the system update?General

    I typically keep my background sync off to avoid un-necessary updates on my Sprint Samsung Galaxy S2. I currently have the stock OS on it (Gingerbread I think). Yesterday to download a new app from the play store I had to turn back on background sync. While looking around the phone automatically downloaded the ICS update (4.0.4). Now I keep getting a notification "Android System Update downloaded and verified." I can only select "Install Now" or "Install Later." Even when I pick "Install Later" it prompts me every 15 min or so to update. How do I cancel this update? I've heard horrible things about the ICS update and don't want to mess up my phone. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

    I also kept getting the ICS upgrade notification and did NOT want to install it. I read this somewhere around here, I think in the all things root section. Try this... it worked for me.

    Next time that notification pops up, click on "More Info", then immediately pull your battery, wait for 5 minutes, re-install battery, and start up the phone. The pop up reminder should be gone.

    Not sure how or WHY this works, but I tried this trick back in November and just realized today that I've not received a single "upgrade" pop-up, since. THANKS!!

    Glad it worked for you. I too haven't received any update notifications since I did this trick.
