Annoying Android updates

Have you rooted and modified your Android phone? Are the vendor-pushed updates getting annoying? Follow this guide to silence those updates and be in control of your own upgrades:

Step 0: Be root.

$ su

Step 1: Mount the /system folder as read/write.

$ mount -o remount,rw /system

Step 2: Create an unwanted apps folder.

$ cd /system
$ mkdir app_hell

Step 3: Move the unwanted app (In this case, we’re moving the firmware upgrade app).

$ mv app/FWUpgrade.apk app_hell/. 
$ mv app/FWUpgrade.odex app_hell/.

Step 4: Remount the /system folder back to read-only.

$ mount -o remount,ro /system

Step 5: Drink a beer.
