Android Phone won't stop downloading


AC Question

Aaaggghhh! Can someone help me? My Galaxy 4 won't stop downloading some update from Samsung. It never seems to finish the download and I can't figure out how to get it to stop.

Welcome to Android Central! What does the notification say? Does it just say that it's downloading from Samsung? This is usually related to security updates, although it should finish. Try booting into Recovery Mode and clearing the system cache partition, which won't erase any personal data. Reset: Samsung Galaxy S 4 | T-Mobile Support
