I took this new phone which had a notification about an update. Thinking it is like Windows OS where I must have the newest updates for proper security practices- I agreed for the update.
Turns out it has become a Lollipop device now. It wouldn't be much of a problem except that the owner who has no Google account and want to stay away from them as much as possible, sharing as little info as possible- now gets a popup every time she turns on the GPS, asking her to share her location with Google ("use Google location services"). She keeps hitting 'Decline', but other than being annoying, the demand is obviously destined to be accidentally accepted one day.
I've spent the entire day looking for a solution and I'm fairly desperate. I am not allowed to install any 3rd party GPS app on the phone nor can I revert to the previous version if it involves me downloading some file from the internet (not from an official source) and trying to flash the device (I'm inexperienced and afraid to brick the device as well).
Can anyone help?
Funnily enough the popup has a "decline" button, an "accept" button, and a "don't ask me again" tick box- however when you choose the tick box- the "Decline" button disappears (turns grey).
I just want to add that it goes without saying about a root being out of the question.
