How to cancel 4.3 upgrade for Samsung S4?

Hi all,

 

A small phone icon popped up on the top left corner of the status bar the other day.  It is a software update, which I am assuming is the 4.3 version since I am currently operating with the 4.2.2 version.  Currently I have no issues with my phone and have heard the 4.3 upgrade has caused problems. So my question is: Can I delete this icon and the software update?  Will it just come back or is there a way to delete it permanently?

 

Thanks in advance to all you out there who have this new-aged technology figured out,

 

...Dave

Hello dwharps2000


There is no way to delete it permanently. It will always show it unless u update your device. Sadly that feature has not and may not be released.

The only way to accomplish this is to Root your device.

Hello Tony_YYZ


Yes that is true but not many would want to root their devices. Sadly there is no other way to do it but rooting.

Hi, I was able to get rid of the icon by bringing down the upper margin menu (single finger), pressing and holding on the icon, then App info popped up. I clicked on that and then at the next App screen I deleted the cache and data and force stopped it. No more icon.
I'd like to root my phone to get rid of all the apps I don't use/need and their related processes but I'm just not that technically savvy and don't want to run the risk of messing up.
Thanks again for the advice.

It's been a few days now and the icon hasn't reappeared. If it does, I'll repost.

Hello dwharps2000


That's only temporary. Its not a solution tho. If u reboot the device, it will bring it back. Its only good when the device never reboots or turns off.

I can't argue with you about the reboot because I simply do not know either way.  I can tell you that I have turned my phone off several times and the icon has not come back. I checked my phone info and I am still running 4.2.2 so I don't know why the icon isn't coming back.  I guess it is just a matter of time.  Until Samsung fixes the bad 4.3 update version, I will not update and will be forced to keep shutting the icon down.
