If the update is handled by an app (maybe google services framework? Not sure) you could try going into settings>apps and untick "Show notifications" for the relevant app
Might not work though - unlikely to be any catastrophic outcomes though - just replace the tick again if it doesn't work

Yes, that works. Usually, you can just tap hold notifications to See its app details page.

Excellent! - notification gone.
Thanks for the assist.
Now to sit back and wait for 4.3, when Paul's ready and issues have been resolved.

As Paul is taking some time away, has anyone tried (and can recommend) another similar rom to try flashing?

Flashed stock 4.3 over Jr11 yesterday, re-rooted using chainfire SU. No problems so far and no wipe needed. I did allready have TWRM installed tho. Will post later after today, but for now I'm happy! Used this simple guide http://android.sc/up...v-firmware-ota/ (second part), which is more or less correct.

Well - end of workday and nothing unusual ;-) Will post over the weekend if something should happen, but for now I'm happy with stock 4.3 (ok, ok, I did just install Franco Kernel...)

@comicbookguy After getting used to expanded desktop and pie on PA I've been using stock 4.3 (steady & smooth) with Auto Hide Softkeys from the Play Store and LMT (the apk is in an xda thread) to get a very customisable Pie.
Just trying to find a way to get custom pull down settings and I'm golden! With a device this quick and a rom as smooth as 4.3 I'm not sure how much polish custom rooms will add. Of course I'll change my tune when there's a stable PAs & CMs!
I'll upload a screen shot of my expanded desktop & LMT when I'm near a pc if I remember

Autohide Softkeys Pro is great. (it just needs a tablet mode so you can shift the softkeys to the left and it'll be golden) Been using it about a week and much prefer it to PIE.

I wasn't aware there was a franco for 4.3 yet..... flashed my backup and testing now ;)

My main issues with 4.3 are:
low bluetooth volume issue (franco seems to have fixed this to a useable level, tho not as high as r12. need to test more).
the headphone volume nag and headphone volume (franco kernel headphone volume boost seems to have no effect at the moment)
cLock (CM clock app) not integrating with alarms (touching the widget does not take you anywhere)
no EPM yet

managed to get 1% stock offset battery mod that works

Ok, after a few days using stock 4.3 with Franco, dirty flashed over jr11 I've only encountered a minor issue where I (for some reason) had to re-enter my SIM pincode. The phone didn't fully reboot as I didn't have to unlock. Other thing I've just noticed is the time was incorrectly set (was set to manual, not network synced). These could very well be due to the non-final SU from Chainfire, the non-stocl Franco Kernel or me dirty flashing over jr11... If it happens again I'll reflash to undo franco's kernel... other than that, still happy, especially with all track metadata being correctly displayed on my BMW iDrive - yay!

@Paul: Paul, if you're reading this and you're still planning on releasing a 4.3 MCR (please do...!), could you consider including this http://code.google.c...detail?id=58317 AOSP fix? It is causing A LOT of annoyance for user that have MVNO sim cards (like myself). Thx and keep it up!

FYI, I contacted Paul via Twitter last week and he said there are plans for a 4.3 update for our N4 devices.

I'm still running 4.2.2 on mine but have gone to 4.3 stock on my N7 (it needed a reset anyway). There really isn't any day-to-day difference since Google started rolling out good app updates to combat sluggish OEMs.

It is frustrating when our subscription is lapsing but I guess that's the trade off in being a fan of Paul's work.

Well - tbh 4.3 does make a big difference and (BT 4.0 and finally support AVRCP) and I'm not really missing anything from jr11 since going to stock 4.3. Only really annoying bug is the stuff I mentioned a few posts back. I've been using (and paying for) MCR ever since I got my HTC Hero, but I feel there's really not much room for improvement to 4.3 when you prefer a stock ROM (as opposed to completely transformed custom ROMs). We'll see what happens here, but I'm loosing interest pretty quick...

the cm10.2 nightlies are already very polished. ive moved over to that from the modoco/cm10.1 hybrid. I'll happily stick to them until something surfaces in either thread on here. the headphone/a2dp volumes are much better than stock.

Been awfully quiet in here! Last update was April! Wonder if Paul's skipping 4.3 and just waiting on 4.4...

Seems paul is busy and devices are not getting much love. Its almost year since I got any MCR update for my devices.  N4. And now No news on N5 as well. I am not active on forums here. But I do support his hard work. I hope we will get 4.4 MCR soon.
