    My phone is rooted and has been for awhile.

    I just received an update this morning.

    It seems like installing this update would just mess my day up, correct?

    Is the update actchualy fixing anything? I ask cause the phone is working perfectly for me as is without the update?

    If its not doing anything amazing, can I just delete the zip file from my phone to remove the annoying notification?

    Looks like it uses about 100MB less than before. Beyond that, I don't know. There is a flashable rooted zip of the new version.

    Does anyone know how to get rid of the update notice? I don't want to update - but the notice is sitting there...staring at me...telling me to push it...go ahead - make your life hell...push the update...take it...loose root. (Okay - so I'm just trying to ad a little humor to it). But really...any way to get rid of the update? By the way - I tried pushing the 'clear' notice button - that didn't work. :(

    It says I've already downloaded the update...can I go find it somewhere and delete it?

    Looks like theres a lively discussion going on here about how to get rid of it.

    Other then that I'm not sure

    Update on the update issue:

    I used Rom Toolbox Pro to freeze these 2 apps

    Software Update
    Update Center

    After doing that I restarted my phone. when it botted back up, the notification was there momentarily and then vanished.

    Thanks for this nickabbasi1...I froze them and the update message is no longer showing on the top tray - but it is there when I 'pull' down the notifications. :(

    Anyone know specifically where I would delete this file? It would appear my phone already downloaded it - just waiting for me to say 'okay' of which I have no intention of doing at this point. :)

    For anyone who still cares:

    Even after freezing App Updates, Update Center, and Software update and deleting the update file itself, I was still getting the notification about the update.

    I found that if I went into Google Play Services < manage space and then clicked "clear all data" the notification appears to finally be gone for good

    Worked like a charm for me... Thank you.

    Edit: Spoke too soon... It re-downloaded the update & then started nagging me to install update again... Sure you don't have some other apps frozen that I don't?

    It redownloaded on me too. I just did what he suggests. I gues I'll see how long it stays dead this time.

    ...the battle continues. ...

    Why not just use the update package on here and be done with it? There's no reason not to.

    If you're rooted , its going to unroot you. Unless me and everyone else is mistaken. ..?

    No, the update package on here is rooted.

    I'm on v4 and happily rooted, debloated, and tweaked. :)
