    Default Stop updates to Android OS

    I have an S4, and I'm running 4.2.2 right now. Previously when I updated to 4.3 I had TONS of issues, and I now I am back at 4.2.2, but it's constantly popping up telling me I have 15 minutes to close all my apps for a "Samsung Update", which is essentially 4.3 which will mess up everything. How do I turn the auto updates off and just stay at 4.2.2 until they figure out a patch that won't break everything?

    I know you get the help box, but do you get a notification as well in your status bar? If so, pull the notification shade down and longpress the update. That should bring up the App Info screen and you can uncheck the notification and disable that app.

    When I long press the update, the only option I have is to "force close", which I do, but then it starts prompting me again in approximately 30 minutes. Is there a different option I need to select? If so, I don't see an obvious selection in the menu. Thanks for the response.

    So there is no disable button or show notifications check box?

    I will have to wait for it to come back up, but I remember trying to figure this out with the last prompt and didn't see anything. I will post here when I receive the prompt again.

    Disable and Show Notifications are both greyed out and disabled.

    An update in the event that somebody was having the same problem as me. I followed the directions in this thread and it fixed my issue.

    How do I stop the "Software Update" notification from Verizon?
