    Hi guys,

    I have a Samasung Galaxy S3 with Verizon Wireless carrier. About a week ago, I received the autmotatic firmware update from verizon. I do not want this update in any way, plus I have a rooted phone that would make it useless.

    I press deffer every time, but I goes back every 24 hours. I tried just installing the firmware update, but I get an error (probaly due to the fact my phone is already rooted).

    Tried Titanium Backup to freeze the process, but it doesnt help. Tried looking for the update filed itself and try to delete it manually- but couldn't find its name.

    Can anybode please help me remove this update prompt from happening every day?

    Thank you.

    Did you freeze SDM 1.0? That is what stopped it on mine (Verizon) and others.

    I just found that process yesterday, so I killed it and nothing popped out yesterday , so I guess problem solved.

    Question: Is the firmware update that important, or can I live without it if I have already rooted my phone and installed a custom rom?

    You can't apply VZW's update to a custom ROM.

    You may be able to flash the modem part (separate manual install) if it doesn't break the custom ROM (I assume it wouldn't).
