Prevents NI4 to NJ4, the AT&T/Samsung OTA update keeps bugging me and I want to turn off the software update. If you are on a rooted AT&T Galaxy S4 and want to prevent the OTA update you can block the following apps with App Quarantine ROOT/FREEZE. Last time my OTA updated it went to NI4, broke Safestrap and Towelroot!

Block these in App Quarantine, tap the Settings icon and tap Filter, turn on Advanced and check Include system services. Block the following apps according to guut13 on XDA Forums.

  • AT&T Software update
  • wssyncmlnps
  • LocalFOTA
