Root [Sprint/Cricket] New update to 4.3 nag

Is there anyway to stop the update to 4.3 nag, besides doing it? I am rooted


I tried taking the update and it didn't take. It booted into CWM and I chose install "untrusted zip", it hung for a few seconds and then rebooted. I am still on 4.1.2 and still rooted. As far as stopping it yes there's a way. Let me search around for the thread...

I tried a lot of stuff and the only thing that finally worked was by going into the build.prop and changing the device id. I have done this on other devices, but this time I ran a zip that was designed for the MOAR 6.1 ROM. There are also zips designed for other Roms. I would recommend that you do a backup before making any changes either manually or with a zip.

As stated previously, the best solution in the long run is to install a newer ROM so that you can take advantage of the new features of 4.3 or 4.4.2

I would not recommend installing the Samsung Knox OTA. (obviously)
