"Dude just turn the phone in and be through with it lol" ....Well DUDE, I guess you never had a real phone. Search facebook Note 7. There are several. Note7rebels charge. There is a free one on there.
My NOTE7 is the best smartphone I owned to date and haking it to not change is wrong it don't get hot or hasn't blown up & probably never will but if u must replace it do it with a Note8 or Edge8 don't make us down grade, if we still have Note7 is cause wer loyal Customers I don't want to go back to Apple...Do the right thing SAMSUNG!!!!
I know exactly how to do what you're asking but I'll let you suffer lol turn you phone in and get your money back. When the s8 comes out and it too late to turn in your note 7 you're going to be saying how bad a company Samsung is for not giving you a deal to upgrade to the s8 lol
Since my original post, I have found out that PDP v 6.3 allows for the blocking of som.sec.android.soagent and the AT&T update com.ws file and that I will need to obtain a copy of that apk and prevent PDP from updating since the developers of the package disabler apps have basically been blackmailed by samsung or something. I have also read of ways to disable it using a PC. Have not determined which route I am gonna go though.
I sincerely do appreciate your comment though and hope that you at least attempt to put good out into the world rather than negativity and spite.
