    Hello the phone keeps wanting to force the OTA update if I choose later it wants a time to install. I don't want to install it as I'm already rooted.

    Any way to delete the update file to stop that message.

    You can delete the update in the /cache folder. After you delete the update, you can freeze sdm and another file to keep the phone from pulling down the update and notifying you. There's a thread further down in this section where someone asked the same thing. I can't get you the link right now since I'm on the mobile app, but it shouldn't be too hard to find.

    I only needed to freeze sdm with Titanium Backup and never received a notice again.

    OK, stupid question from one still learning...

    Which /cache folder? :thinking:

    I've got Titanium Backup, so I'm good to go when it's time to freeze sdm. I just need to figure out where to access the /cache folder. I'm getting the daily "There is an update for your phone" message, and I'm getting tired of telling it to postpone. So I haven't actually downloaded the update yet. I just want to keep from getting the update message.

    I would assume this folder:
    [​IMG]

    You can access that with any file explorer that has root access such as ES file explorer or Root Explorer apps.

    I can only assume that, as the only files I personally have in that folder are:
    dalvik-cache
    lost+found
    recovery.

    Perhaps yours has the update download in it??

    That's kinda what I thought too... looked inside that folder, and it's empty. So that would lead me to believe that I have not yet downloaded the update. So far, so good.

    In Titanium, I see the subheader for Freeze/Defrost. So I will try the SDM freeze and see how that goes.

    Thanks for the info!

    Sorry for not replying sooner, but I've been busy with school. I couldn't find the exact website I found earlier that had the instructions for the s3, but it should still be the same as for nexus devices. Here's another link I found (post #8 has a screenshot that shows the path): http://forums.androidcentral.com/google-nexus-4/314374-downloaded-4-2-3-system-update-how-delete.html


    I think the update (if it's been downloaded) is just called update.zip on our phones, but I can't remember since I got rid of the update and flashed cm11 street my phone downloaded it and tried to have me install it.
