    There is no such thing as liability by proxy in this case. The creators of the tool are not targeting Samsung specifically because of the Note7 fiasco, and the tools were widely available years before any of the current events transpired with the same functionality. The devs were paid off or threatened and therefore buckled. I am going to go with paid off.
    Any evidence or just random thoughts / accusations with no facts?

    Actually, I did hear from one of the developers that's Samsung muscled them into complying. I won't discuss which one.

    Somehow I don't see how Samsung has control over the Google Play store -- but if you say so..

    I'm not making it up. I just don't want to post any specific details of who disclosed this between the two devs.

    I don't have the service provider update file either. It may depend on what service and who's version of the phone you have. I'm in the Detroit MI area and I have the Verizon version. But I also no longer have a SIM card installed and I'm just using it as a wifi only device.

    Can't change your imei, but you can disable software updates. I've done so. Use an app like package disabler pro to disable all the update services. Don't need them updating my phone until I send it back in.
    I'm sure if they wanted to force an update, disabling updates wouldn't do a damn thing. Lol

    Then why did they force the developers to update their apps to where we couldn't disable updates anymore? Now they can still block imei, but the update service is disabled.

    Seeing as I actually implemented the same MDM system that Samsung uses at least for a good number of their devices, no, there is no way that they can force an update if the receiving client is disabled. The only question is, is the receiving client really disabled. Judging by Samsung's move to force the two apps to disallow deactivating some packages, I'd say we are on the right track.

    Edit: Just wanted to add one point to this. If you factory reset the device, expect any mandatory OTA to come down immediately. You won't be able to stop this. So, in addition to disabling OTA updates while the device is running, you'll have to make sure you don't have a network connection after any factory reset or the OTA will come down, whether anyone likes it or not.

    I've searched for hours and can't find one link that works. Either the websites have ridiculous spam that i can't navigate past or the files i download are not able to be opened on my 7. Any private messages including a reliable link would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks in advance!

    When I search "update" this is what I get. I'm using 6.3. Am I missing something? I should clarify that I'm using 6.3 of DP+, not regular DP. Not sure if that makes a difference.

    You have disabled everything you need to disable and more. You do not need to disable KnoxAppsUpdateAgent and com.policydm.

    Hmm, that's odd. I am using the paid version of Package Disabler Pro 6.3, so I think we're using the same thing. Maybe certain things listed may be related to your carriers version of the phone. Mine was a Verizon model Note 7, but I am just using it for a wifi only device currently and don't have a sim card installed in it. I don't have the UrgentFWUpdateTSP on mine. The Samsung system update is missing from your screen shot , and that is the one I would be the most concerned about disabling to prevent an unwanted OS update.
