I rooted and modded my Samsung Prevail (Gingerbread) a couple weeks ago, and all is going well there.

However, I am now getting notices about an OTA system update, which I have no intention of installing. I will wait for the makers of my mod to produce a parallel version.

In the meantime, is there any way to kill the constant notices about the update?

tagged as clockwork mod since that was part of the rooting/modding process I followed. –  Andrew Barber Jun 14 '12 at 14:59
    
removed the clockwork mod tag as it has nothing to do with the issue :) Check for fota-kill, that's what e.g. CyanogenMod uses to stop the OTA stuff (see e.g. XDA and AndroidCentral). –  Izzy Feb 1 '13 at 15:17

On my S2 running ICS, there are options available for notification as well as downloading via Wi-Fi. Look under SETTINGS > ABOUT PHONE > SOFTWARE UPDATE

If you don't have such options and you have a rooted phone, use software like Titanium Backup to FREEZE the software update module.

I'm on GB, and there were no comparable options I could find. The FREEZE method via Titanium Backup seems like a viable option, and earned my +1, but I wasn't so sure I was finding the correct thing to freeze. I'll have to poke at that some more. Incidentally, though; it seems that after you cancel it enough times, it goes dormant for a while, then comes back a few times, and goes dormant again. I expect it'll keep coming back, though, so I'm going to look more closely at the options via TB. –  Andrew Barber Jun 18 '12 at 20:39

On my device (it runs Jelly Bean) there is an option under SETTINGS > APPLICATION > All ('Tab')

Now select the "software update" app and then click on "turn off/disable".

This will stop the over the air notification for system update and whenever you want to update then "turn on/enable" the app again.
