Are you tired of constantly receiving annoying pop-up messages on your Samsung Galaxy S5 that remind you that your battery cover is not installed or your charging port cover is not covered? If you have root access on your device, you can easily disable these pop-up reminders. In this article, we will guide you step by step on how to disable these reminders using an app called PopupUIReceiver.

Before we proceed, please note that rooting your device may void your warranty and could potentially cause harm to your device if not done correctly. Proceed with caution and at your own risk.

Step 1: Install a Root Browser

To begin, you will need to have a root browser installed on your Samsung Galaxy S5. We recommend using an app called Solid Explorer, which you can download from the Google Play Store. Once you have downloaded and installed Solid Explorer, you are ready to proceed to the next step.

Step 2: Open Root Directory

Launch Solid Explorer and navigate to the root directory of your device. To do this, tap on the menu button in the top left corner of the app and select “Root” from the dropdown menu.

Step 3: Locate the “pop-up receiver” File

In the root directory, navigate to the “system” folder and then the “apps” folder. Here you will find the file named “pop-up receiver”. This is the file responsible for the annoying pop-up reminders.

Step 4: Disable or Rename the File

To disable the pop-up reminders, you have the option to either delete or rename the “pop-up receiver” file. For best practices, we recommend renaming the file in case you want to restore it in the future.

To rename the file, press and hold on the “pop-up receiver” file and then tap on the “Rename” option. Rename the file to something like “dot back” or any other name you prefer. This will prevent your device from recognizing the file on startup, disabling the pop-up reminders.

Step 5: Restart Your Device

After you have renamed or deleted the “pop-up receiver” file, you will need to restart your Samsung Galaxy S5 for the changes to take effect. Once your device restarts, the annoying pop-up reminders should no longer appear.
