Root [Sprint/Cricket] How do I stop system update pop-ups?


Android Enthusiast
Just flashed an older version of Chemistry ROM 4.1 and I'm happy with it for the most part but the pop-ups for updating the system are annoying and yes, I know NOT to press update. Is there anything I can do to stop these pop-ups?

If you are using a STOCK based ROM you can remove fota.client.apk and fwupgrade.apk with ES File Explorer in /system/apps. Just enable root explorer menu key > Tools > Root Explorer > Mount R/W so you can browse and delete files. If rom uses you can delete that apk from the /system/app/ folder as well.
