    Someone confirmed this method is working. This won't get rid of the update notification, however this will update the radio on the phone from the latest Metro / TMO OTA.

    Download the radio image here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B3c_enS_FZ-_bGVZbjlFTlJRaU0/view?usp=sharing

    Open up ADB and once you have the terminal or command line open run the command "adb devices" to make sure your devices is detected by adb.

    Type "adb reboot bootloader". This will reboot your device to fastboot mode.

    Once in fastboot type: fastboot flash radio radio.img

    Once its done type: fastboot reboot recovery

    In recovery wipe dalvik and cache and then reboot.

    my occupation is a peaceful one
    in a van down by the river
    It kinda seems like i get files from play store faster
    Still no chance to give gps a whirl..
    I defiantly get better reception and web indoors.....
    like when I'm bored out of my skull from being at walfart 3 plus hours with the wife...
    I still have reoccurring instances of multiple icons from certain apps...
    but, no red flags from antiviri...
    My wife's take on that is that my phone hates me....
