OTA Blocker is the ONLY one-click tool to effectively protect your phone from unwanted OTA updates.
☆The only EFFECTIVE tool to block OTA updates
☆Helps keep root access
☆Prevent further BOOTLOADER lockdowns
☆Don't be mistaken: "Freezing" alone doesn't work!
☆The only available technique to both stop OTAs and to ensure system stability when OTA updates are checked/requested.
OTA Blocker is an effective tool:
[✔] BitRifle developers researched in depth the Verizon OTA process on the S3.
[✔] We provide a custom package that *INTERCEPTS* OTA interactions, neuters them, and provides an on-screen visual.
[✔] We identified which components to disable.
[✔] We replaced the required APIs with our own; Where freezing/deleting APKs will cause your phone to crash, OTA Blocker keeps your phone running.
Blocking OTA updates is very advantageous:
[✔]Verizon may try to revoke root rights on your phone.
[✔]Future updates may further restrict the Galaxy S3's lockable bootloader. As of today, part of the bootup process is locked already - it could get tighter.
[✔]Worse, Verizon may be able to automatically push updates to your phone without your consent. Using OTA Blocker today will provide immediate protection against this threat!
