Removing OTA Update for Rooted Samsung Galaxy Note 2
Hopefully this is an oversight on my part...
My wife recently purchased a Note 2 which appears to be running one of the earliest versions of Jelly Bean. I followed the steps outlined here...
[Beginners Guide]How to root Samsung Galaxy Note 2 - xda-developers
...to perform a simple root of the device. I say simple because there is no Custom indicator during start-up like on my S4. I do not know if that has anything to do with this but I will let the experts decide. SuperSU is installed and everything appears to be in order. I downloaded NoBloat Free and tried to follow the steps I used to disable OTA updates on my S4 (post #2 from How do I stop system update?). However, it appears the .apk used to push out updates on the Note 2 is different than the .apk file used for the S4. When I disabled the corresponding .apk file for the Note 2, several Google-related functions were lost including the Play Store.
I do not have her phone with me now but I can test any suggestions later this evening. Additionally, I do not recall the exact .apk file I disabled which caused the loss of the Play Store. Needless to say, I quickly enabled the .apk file once I noticed the issue. Any and all suggestions are appreciated.
