If you’ve flashed one of the Ice Cream Sandwich Android 4.0 based (leaked) firmwares on your Galaxy S2 I9100, you’ve probably run across the irritating ‘Update’ notification in the status bar, that refuses to go away no matter what you do. It cannot be setup, as you may already have tried more than couple of times, and you simply can’t swipe it off, like you do other notifications in there.
Well, there is an
app hack for that. By freezing the system app responsible for that, you can actually disable it permanently. You do need root access in order to do that, so first root your current firmware (search this site for your phone’s current build number).
Then follow the quick and small guide we have her below, which will show you how to disable this notification for good. Read on to find out how.
Step by Step procedure
- Install the free app ROM Toolbox on your phone from -> here. (Or open the Market on your phone, search for ‘ROM Toolbox’, and install it).
- Open the app on the phone. Press the ‘Allow’ button when it asks for root access.
- Now, click on the button that says ‘App Manager’. This will load a list of all the apps installed on your phone.
- Next, click on the ‘All Tabs’ tab at the top of the screen.
- Scroll down to the entry that says ‘Device Management’. Long press on it, then select the ‘Freeze’ option.
- Reboot your phone.
That’s it, this will ensure that you never get that annoying update notification again. Share your thoughts and problems in the comments below and we’ll do our best to help you out.
