    Well, there is no any way to disable the option of software update other than rooting your device. Well, tell me one more thing why you want to disable the update option ? I guess its good to have a update option !! :O

    You can't disable this. When an Android OS update is available for your device you will get a message stating so. It won't download automatically.
    If my post helped you out...PLEASE be kind and hit the THANKS button.

    I believe you can in settings>security>updates> and turn off automatic update.

    Ok. Just to confirm, there is no way, absoluetely, you cannot disable the update. T-mobile just updated my phone without asking or being able to stop the update. Guess we are doomed.
