Browse to folder: /data/data/org.lineageos.updater/app_updates edit: per comments below, this is outdated and the top answer is correct.

You can disable these notifications by unchecking the notifications for Google Play Services [Not Framework]. This fixed my problem on the LG G3 and I assume it will on all other devices. The best option is to click and hold the notification and then select 'App info', which will take you to desired app info for that update notification. Then uncheck the ...

I just spoke to Google directly. The Nexus 5 under settings, apps has something called Google Play services. Not store. If you uncheck the notification box in Google Play services and restart the phone the notification for the Android system updates will stop in the notification bar. Worked like a charm!

The before and after screenshots of the about screen confirm that I had the exact same Android, Baseband, and Kernel versions, as well as the same Build Number Actually, they do not. The first screenshot shows a build number of JWR66V, and the second is JWR66Y. An official changelog has not been released, but T-Mobile's documentation indicates that the ...

It appears to be random chance. In this reddit thread, Google Employee Dan Merrill says of OS update rollouts and "mashing" the "check for updates button": Rollouts are conducted in phases. Typically they start at 1% of devices for around 24 - 48 hours; we watch the return rates and resulting device checkins and error reports (if any), ...

It sounds like the "/system/bin/app_process" has been modified and so it doesn't match the signature required. There are 2 ways to fix this, either get a copy of the stock file from another phone/rom or flash the factory image for 4.3 Edit: After reading "update 2" it sounds like you want the factory image option detailed below. ...

OTA updates don't wipe the device: all apps and data are preserved across the update. Even so, it's always a good idea to back up your data frequently. As you point out, not all apps support the in-built Google backup mechanism, so it's wise to have a full backup just in case. See our backup tag wiki and top questions to learn about what options are ...

Goal If you have the OTA image downloaded and, as in my case, ended up without success you should be able to adb sideload <filename> it still manually (video here). Problem/Error ... unfortunately the OTA update via adb sideload errors out with: Finding update package... Opening update package... Verifying update package... Installing update... ...

OTA updates that come directly from Google (such as Nexus devices) are rolled out in waves. An excerpt from Dan Morill's comment states that, specifically: Rollouts are conducted in phases. Typically they start at 1% of devices for around 24 - 48 hours; we watch the return rates and resulting device checkins and error reports (if any), and make sure nothing ...

Yes. Probably, these are app's update, because if they are OS updates you would be asked to restart your device or install the update. To avoid auto update from app's:In the Play store app, swipe from the left edge to the right. Go to settings. Under the "General" list, select "Update app's automatically"and mark with a dot "Only through Wi-Fi"

If you happen to be rooted, you should be able to install Disable Services and find the SystemUpdateService under Google Play Services disable Google Services Framework.

Also ; Goto : Settings -> About Phone -> Software Update -> Auto Update checked or other options for Enable Update with Wifi ... Edit : If you want to instead auto-update apps only when you're connected to a WiFi network, tap Auto-update apps over Wi-Fi only in the same pop-up.

Two pieces of ground I want to cover here: /cache is typically a separate partition on your device, which wouldn't be mountable by a PC via USB, which is why that isn't working. The USB connection generally accesses a directory named "sdcard" (or similar) which is used as an external storage device, although this storage area doesn't have to be physically ...

Since Android 5.0, any modifications to /system will cause OTA updates to fail. Android Police noted that: ... the OTA script no longer patches individual files. Instead, it patches the system block directly and treats it as one enormous blob. Therefore you have 2 choices if you want to update your device. Remove any modifications to the system ...

OTA files work by patching files rather than replacing them will a full copy of the new version of the file. This means that it has to verify that the existing files are exactly as it expects or the patching process won't work (or could cause the file to become corrupt). If you were to fake the fingerprint and force the OTA to apply you might end up with a ...

If the auto install doesn't work you can go to /data/lineageos_updates and install the update manually. Remember to wipe dalvik cache after flash ends. Updated (thanks to Sup3rHugh): LOS changed the OTA folder from /data/data/org.lineageos.update/app_updates to /data/lineageos_updates.

Every update would fully overwrite /system and carry all history changes, therefore just installing the latest build would sync you up to progress. There will be (rare) occasions where the developer pushed patches that negatively affects the build (e.g. wrong CPU governor causing the phone to lag or heat up). On top of that, Android security patches, which ...

So I tried to "Clear Data", instead of just "Clear Cache" in the Google Service Framework (and Forced Stop). I then ran the checkin again (Dial *#*#2432546#*#* in the phone app), and now I'm being shown the new Android 4.3 System Update.

The roll-out for all (or at least most) OTA updates is staged in case there is an issue which has not been noticed. The 4.4.2 update seems to be being rolled out quicker than the 4.4.1 update, but it won't be available to all devices at the same time. You should receive the update in a few days. This post by an android engineer explains the process a bit ...

CyanogenMod has its own OTA Updater. You will not get the official Android updates, but the CM updates.

You can't create or modify OTA zip without the proper OEM signing key. However, there exist holes in older devices like Samsung Galaxy Y which allow flashing unofficial zip with test keys, but these kind of hacks are outdated (source) if you want to create OTA zip you need update-binary for your device and write updater-script in EDIFY language you can ...

The devices which were bought from Google Play are takju and the ones from Samsung are akju. I think your phone is yakju (Google Play didn't sell Devices in India). Takju gets all updates directly from Google. If you want to get all updates from Google at the time of release you have to convert to takju. How Can you do that Please follow below to convert ...

For the developer preview versions, there will not be an over the air (OTA) update. This is clearly mentioned in announcement at Android Developer Blog. So, when the actual Lollipop comes out on November 3rd, Google will create factory images for Nexus Devices and upload to Factory Images for Nexus Devices. Fetch it and flash it again to enjoy Lollipop on ...

I think your best bet is to unroot your device and restore it to stock. This means stock ROM, recovery and kernel, and you will be unrooted. This is often referred to as "flashing a factory image", sometimes incorrectly. But that's what we're going to do! Note: This process will wipe your phone completely. Backup your storage before you continue. ...

Another option, without wiping any data, is to when an OTA update is available, get the direct link and download the zip file to your PC, download the latest image version of your custom recovery (eg TWRP) and the latest SuperSU zip to your PC connect your device to your PC and reboot into bootloader mode then dirty flash the stock boot, recovery & ...


5

The answer is the update won't push through if you have a custom recovery like TWRP. I had to restore the stock recovery using the Nexus Root Toolkit. Then the update showed again, and it went through flawlessly. Even the re-rooting part (again using NRT) was perfect.


5

Is there any reason to update Android firmware via PC using software like Odin, rather than just doing an OTA update? Yes. Since Android Lollipop, Google has moved to block based OTA updates which means if the system partition is tampered with (often done when rooting the device) the OTA upgrade would and should fail. How would you update the OS then? In ...

Any Android device with a patch level prior to September 1st 2017 will be vulnerable, yes. Google patched this vulnerability in the September 1st update which has been released for Nexus and Pixel devices. Other devices will need to wait until the manufacturer releases an update containing these fixes. An official test app has been released to the Play ...

After OTA system update, does the device install OS to both partitions? Or install to only one partition. and whether the device continues to same(current) android version until reboot manually?(after installing version update). Or whether it updates current to latest version overnight. It installs only to the inactive partition, which becomes active on ...
