      Try this, go to settings and find the update section there. See if there is anything such as ‘do not notify me about updates’ or anything. If you have rooted your i9100G on Android 2.3, you can install ROM Control app (it would need root access to work) and then freeze the update service of Samsung, which will remove the notification.

      But, I think you should go ahead with the update. Android 4.0 is pretty good update, kind of must-have.

    actually you only need to go to settings/about phone/software update and uncheck all

      it does not work

      Works if you delete the downloaded update

    I could not find “device manager”, but i could simply find two instances of “software update”. I have uninstalled them through ROM Toolbox and now do not have any “software update” message anymore, problem solved.

      Cool. Thanks for letting us know, will update the post above with our info.

        Infact you only need to freeze the “software update” that has a green rectangle icon. The one with arrows that look like the notification is a decoy I guess.

    I remember after I flashed ICS onto my GS2 that it was in the notifications bar, but I simply tapped on it and then attempted to “update” (I knew it would not work) but after it told me it couldn’t it disappeared anyway. Problem sort of solved itself. Anyone else have that happen?

       Nope :(
      But what Hiernu suggested worked :)
