Get Rid of Those OTA Update Notifications on the Samsung Galaxy S II

Developers are always so busy making ROMs the best they possibly can be. However, sometimes things happen that they can’t get to right away. An example of this are OTA updates. Even having the most recent version of a ROM flashed can mean getting notifications for an OTA that’s ready to be installed. Of course, you should never accept an OTA while on a custom ROM because it could break thing. So, what are people to do about it?

XDA Senior Member ThC23 has posted about a number of fixes to that very problem for owners of the Samsung Galaxy S II. As ThC23 points out:

If you must have the update for some reason and don’t want to just flash a ROM that’s already 2.3.6, then it’s best to go back to stock. UPDATE will not work unless you have STOCK RECOVERY on your phone.

So for anyone who just wants to flash it, that’s what you’ll need to get it done. For everyone else who doesn’t want it just yet, there are a couple of methods a user can use to make the update stop appearing until they can flash a ROM that’s been updated.

For the complete list of methods, download links and information, you can visit the original thread for everything you need to make those OTA updates disappear until you’re ready for them.

Root T-Mobile S6/Edge on 5.1.1 Without Tripping Knox

If you purchase phones from a carrier, you may be no stranger to the difficulties involved in rooting and installing a custom rom, recovery and kernel on such a carrier locked device. Add to this the extra layer of security that Samsung adds in the form of the Knox counter on its devices, and one can only imagine the roadblocks for enthusiasts who want to play around with their device without losing warranty in the process. It's a slippery slope...
