    After LOTS of reading, I decided to keep my phone the way it is and root it instead. Lots more new things to get than just Apps2SD and HDR video (whatever that is)! Hope you welcome me here as well as the GNexers did!

    With that in mind - I have a question - What's the best way to stop Big Red from asking to (and eventually on their own) updating my S4? I froze SDM and FWUpdate in TiBu (glad to have that bad boy back), but is there anything else. I did this as well:

    Renamed file: /etc/security/otacerts.zip to otacerts.zip.bak
    Renamed file: /system/app/ wssyncmlnps.apk to wssyncmlnps.apk.bak

    All help appreciated mucho!

    Thanks, that was exactly what I was looking for. The annoying message doesn't pop up anymore.

    Really? Hoped it would go away after all of that. Guess there's more. Help me out, people!

    BTW, I hear if you just decline the update, they'll stop bothering you about it and you'll have to get it yourself. Simply delaying the download will cause the message to reappear, and eventually just download it after a few times.

    Is he right?

    I'm not sure how to stop the update since I'm running CleanRom but if you would Rom the developer would add these features in there updates also.

    I just installed TiBu and froze them instead of just disabling the 2 apps listed and found the files and renamed them.
    Hopefully this will get rid of the annoying pop up.
