Disable the Jelly Bean SMS Warning on the Galaxy Nexus

Most consider Jelly Bean to be the greatest version of Android released thus far. It’s fast, smooth, it has Google Now, and all sorts of other features that not many people have complained about. There are a few things here and there, however, that may annoy certain users. One example is a text limit that will give you the pictured warning if you send too many texts in a short time.

While the rate limit there to prevent malicious apps from hijacking your text messaging, some think that it’s set too low. Now there’s a fix. According to XDA Senior Member erishasnobattery, who posted the fixes:

JRO03H had a limit set of 100 messages in 30 minutes, which probably kept all but the most avid texters in the clear. However, when we merged to JRO03L last week, it had dropped to 30 in 30 minutes. Personally, I think it was a typo and should have been 300, but either way, it triggered on me so I set out to fix it.

If you couldn’t tell from the update names, this is aimed at the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. Not only has erishasnobattery fixed the issue on the ROM he maintains, but has created fixes for some other popular Gnex ROMs, such as BAMF, AOSP, and a special one for CM10.

If you’d like to get rid of the warning, check out the original thread. However, keep in mind that with the new limit set to 500 messages in 30 minutes, there is a little more room for malicious activity.
