    I just got the system update (4.0.4) available notification and have less than zero desire to change anything on this phone which has been perfect for me in every way. Is there any good way to permanently eliminate these notification/prompts so I don't accidentally accept it at some point?

    If you are rooted, simply accept the generous invitation. The install will fail and on reboot from CWM you should be good to go...if not rooted, there is an app called FOTAkill which is suppose to stop the update notifications but it didn't work for me.

    Here is the thread at xda

    http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1463777

    Here is the direct link to FOTAkill

    If i received a new replacement phone with GB after having ICS already pushed to my previous phone will I get a new update notification?

    I'm pretty sure you will get it at some point.

    Yes, I have a few new phones that I got for upgrades and did the OTA and had the battery drain problem. So I switched it with another phone and got the update right away with the same number.

    Press the home screen button when it pops up, and it won't bother you again.

    One person said that if your phone is rooted, just accept the ICS update and you'll be fine. When I did that, ICS took over but I lost my tethering and root. Superuser program was still present but would not allow any program to use it. After updating Superuser program and checking around, I finally reinstalled from a link on Android Central a factory rooted Gingerbread. Then, the wifi tether program. Even though I lost all information that was not backed up, the phone and android have been working great. I recently began getting the Sprint upgrade to ICS notifications hourly and know I will not click ok on it. Reading further for a way to just stop the notifications. I'm sure the information is here. Just wanted to share that tidbit before moving on. Thank you.

    If you want to ignore the update you have to refuse to take notice of or acknowledge, or disregard intentionally.

    ^^^^ This worked! The method I posted before seemed to have worked but I go the OTA notification again. So I flashed the linked zip file and it says I am now "updated"!

    Thanks!

    How long ago was this? I've read that this only stops the update for a few days and then it comes back.

    This method worked for me. I'm rooted, but have no custom ROMs or anything else installed. I dont have CWM installed either. Just EL29 rooted only.

    [How-to] Disable OTA updates on Stock + Rooted ROMs - xda-developers

    I installed the ES Explore program as well as ES Task Manager.

    Using ES Explore I kept having troubles copying the FOTAKill.apk file to the /system/app
    directory until I granted the ES Explore program SuperUser access. Once that was done, I was able to copy the file from the Download directory to the /system/app directory, reboot and Viola! no more OTA update notifications.

    I accepted the update after going back to Gingerbread because someone here said it wouldnt work on rooted phones. Well it went thru anyway and now I have ICS again, but its working just fine now with ICS. No more issues with the phone not sleeping and the battery now lasts at least 12 hours, so im feeling better about ICS

    i have a rooted S2 and used FOTAkill. it occasionally still pops up but not very often. i will go several days and only see it a couple times. not sure why it still pops up but seems to happen only after reboots. good enough for me. i can stand it a few times here and there, before FOTAkill i would get the damn popup 20+ times a day.
