Getting rid of update popup?

    Hello,

    I am using a rooted (stock) G2. I upgraded (via unrooting then re-rooting) to 4.4.2 a while back when it came out. Then, all of a sudden, yesterday, my phone started downloading MUC 6.4.1.5_E02 (which I thought was old by now). Now, it keeps asking me to install it -- which I cannot because, of course, I am rooted. How do I either: (a) just get rid of/disable this update from installing, or (b) should I install it, which would, again, require un-rooting then re-rooting. Is MUC 6.4.1.5_E02 important/cool/necessary? What is it exactly? Is it what's mentioned here?

    My phone is currently using:
    Baseband:
    VS98024A-M8974A-AAAANAZM-2.0.20046
    Kernel:
    3.4.0-perf-gdf89a11
    lge@android-build
    Build:
    KOT49l.VS98024A
    Software ver:
    VS98024A

    No custom recovery.


    Thank you!
    :)

    Get Titanium Backup if you don't already own it. Use it to freeze "System updates MUC 6.4.1.5_E02".

    You may or may not want to clear the contents of /cache/fota following the freezing of the app as the OTA likely resides there waiting to be applied. Also note that some G2 users have experienced a situation where the update applies itself after a certain number of refusals on your part. This can be a bad situation.

    Do yourself a favor and don't wait around on this.

    How do I do this? Why would I not want to clear it?

    (oh, and: is there anything noticeable in this update?)

    Once the udpater MUC app is frozen, it MAY clear itself after a reboot since we're talking about cache. I'm not sure but somewhat guessing that could be the case. Otherwise, use Root Explorer or similar root enabled file explorer and navigate there and delete if still present.

    Here's some info on the 25B update though it looks like you may be 2 updates short. Not sure what the other one did or what it was named:

    Hmmm.... maybe I'll try it. I'm aware that I probably have to restore my original Wireless Hotspot app, but do you know if I have to temp unroot as well?

    If you install it,It very well may be the final update for your phone.
    I got the update from at&t about a week and a half ago,And had to unroot and update,Then reroot.

    Depends on what you've done to alter /system in any way. Restoring stock hotspot app would be the first thing but so often people make other changes and forget about it which could cause issues. Got Xposed? Running any modules? Anything frozen or removed with Titanium, etc.

    Worth a shot but you may end up restoring stock, updating and re-rooting as AMOCO mentioned. It's hard to weed everything out sometimes.

    What is the best way to temp un-root? I see an option in SuperSU, but it says "permanent unroot." I want to just temporarily unroot for updating purposes, then go right back. What's the best way to do this?
