    Thumbs up [HACK] Remove WiFi reminder

    This will remove that annoying little Wifi Reminder. I have tested this on my phone with 0 issues.

    •You will need root
    •You will a SQLite editor
    Free SQ editor here: http://code.google.com/p/xdroidx/dow...20Editor-9.apk




    1.Open up SQLite...Open Settings Storage > db > secure
    2.Search for “wifi_networks_available_notification_on” (different providers will be different line numbers)
    3.Edit that record to read a value of 0 < (that's a ZERO)
    4.Reboot your phone

    How to remove WIFI Popup Notification:
    Open anycut.

    Click 'new shortcut'

    Click 'activity'

    Click 'HiddenMenuWifiOffload'

    use new home screen shortcut to turn it off

    In addition to the removal of the wifi reminder, there is a mod to place the wifi toggle along with the other toggles in the notification pane:

    Here is a screenshot of my Verizon GS3 with the wifi toggle in the proper place and no wifi nag in the notification pane:



    To get the wifi toggle go here:

    You can do this without root and get rid of the popup asking you to connect to wifi.

    you can get rid of the notification without root? is it the same method described here and it just doesnt actually require root or is it a different method?

    does adding back the wifi toggle to its rightful place also require root?

    these two things are probably my biggest gripes with the phone.

    thanks

    You can remove the popup without root but the ongoing notification and replacing the wifi toggle will require root.

    The AnyCut/BetterCut instructions will get rid of the popup only. There has to be a way to to get rid of the notification without root - as my notification has been gone for 5-6 days now with several reboots and I have no idea how to root... but I have no idea how or what I did to get rid of it but it is gone! The wifi toggle will require root it seems.

    Maybe you are not connected to a known wifi. Well i mean not in range of a known wifi connection is what i should say.

    Nope - notification gone even at home with two different known wifi networks and outside of home with another known network. I know this because the notification was gone for days before I found the AnyCut trick to get rid of the annoying pop-up and kept getting the pop-up at home all the time. Now I have nether one and no root.

    I don't know how I did it. I have no root access and just messed with the settings and I have to message on the notification bar nor any annoying pop ups. In the WiFi settings I unchecked the "notify me" settings and in the advanced settings I checked the "auto connect" I keep my WiFi on all he time and it does not diminish my battery one bit.

    I found this comment to the article about the nagging WiFi popup on Slashgear. This does not require root or any apps. It accesses the hidden menu via the phone dialer. I did this and no more pop-up.

    To those who wish to remove the wifi popup, NO NEED TO DOWNLOAD ANYCUT!
    simply open the dialer and enter the following code:
    *#6335623#

    this will open "HiddenMenuWifiOffload" menu.
    select "Disable WifiOffloading"
    press OK
    done!

    Sorry it is not working for you. I just checked it again and it went to the menu and shows it still disabled. I have not had the popup since. I have no idea how to root or customize anything. Just straight out of the box with a few apps loaded. You are not pushing Send or any other keys? On mine, the instant I touch the last # key it goes to the menu.

    Worked fine for me. Just as described.

    I should have had my glasses on this morning. I missed the * in front of the string. Got rid of it in the meantime with the anycut fix. Thanks.

    For some reason the dial string didn't work for me, but anycut worked like a champ :-)
