    My phone decided to download the jellybean update and then prompt me to install or defere, but only defere for FIVE days??

    I never want to update. Jellybean breaks a lot of things and features for me and it is MY phone I do not want to auto upgrade. period.

    does anyone know how to block the update from ever happening? This is ridiculous!

    I have a hunch they are forcing the update on vzw to prevent people using foxfi. If you cannot disable the updates in applications managers, I *think* root would be your only option

    Updates won't work when the phone is modified so you might have to root just to prevent the upgrade (if vzw removed the option to disable the update altogether that is).
