    Default Samsung Galaxy S3 bug after 4.4 update... (Download notifications won't go away.)

    So I have a Virgin Mobile Galaxy S3 that just got the 4.4 update this morning. Afterwards it had to redownload/update nearly every app on the device as well as all my SNES and Playsation ROMs which I though was odd.

    Now all the notifications for thos downloads will not go away. I've cleared them all at once, I've cleared them all individually. When I turn the screen off and then turn it back on an dunlock the phone all those notifications are back in the notification bar.

    Anyone else having this issue or know how to solve it?

    Thanks.

    Wow! I have a VZW SGS3 and I was not holding my breath for getting the update anytime soon. But you got it yesterday so I would assume that I just have to wait for VZW to get off their arse and do some work!

    Sorry I don't have any answers on your notification issue.

    I have a Boost Mobile Galaxy 3 phone and the same thing keeps happening. It's so aggravating.

    My S3 just got the 4.3 update but did similar things. If you hold down one of those download notifications, it should bring up the app details. Click the "app details" and clear the cache. Normally its in your downloads area. Hope this helps.

    I have a sprint galaxy s3 and just got the OTA 4.3 upgrade. Ever since the phone booted with the new rom, i have had 1 download notification that wont go away. I have pressed on the notification and cleard the app cache, i have even deleted the actual download file but it still returns to the notification bar. Any other ideas?

    Discoverd tht if you open the downloads app from your app list you can clear the list of downloads under both tabs. It wont delete the downloads, only the refernce or memory of them in the app. Worked for me.

    Hi guys, I've got exactly the same issue on my S3.

    Not to sound stupid but where is the apps list under downloaded apps?

    Just the fact the S3 hasn't got 4.4 surprises me to find this topic..
    Do not question the words I type, question the reply you are typing at this moment...

    I experienced the same issue. By clearing the download lists, the constant notifications stopped. Thanks!!

    Clearing the Cache of the Downloads app did not work for me but this did.....

    Menu, Settings, More, Application Manager, [pull the screen until you see ALL], scroll down to Download Manager, Clear Data.

    Go under your list of Apps and it is just called "Downloads".

    This worked for me! I turned off the notifications first then cleared the cache and turned them back on. Thanks!
