I have a Motorola Razr Maxx with ICS (4.0.2) on it. It went and downloaded the JellyBean upgrade, which I do not want to happen. Each hour the phone prompts me to upgrade. How can I keep this from happening? Can I delete the new files for JB and stop the hourly message? Thanks in advance.

Are you rooted? –  Liam W Dec 11 '12 at 19:23

(1) If you have root, you can use Titianium Backup, and uninstall "Device Management 3.0" (or some other version).

(2) OR, [also needs root], remove dmclient.apk, dmclient.odex, cmclient.apk, cmclient.odex from /system/app. Back-up these files first, in case you want to update in the future; you will need these.

You can postpone the installation of an OS update, but you can't put it off forever. Just keep watching for the notification that an update is available. After some period of time, though, and I don't know how long that is, the update will simply download and install on its own.

Be aware, though, that if it were possible to postpone it forever, any future update will not install on your phone.
