One most obvious way to get rid of the updates is to uninstall the latest updates from the android system. But this is not the permanent solution. Anytime you visit the android market application again, there will be a silent background update and the Play Store App will be installed again(without you knowing how and when it happened).
How to permanently disable this new android market update ? (NEEDS ROOT)
If you have root access on your phone, then install this free app – link2sd from the android market. Now open the app and find this system application – Market Updater. Tap on this very app and select freeze from the actions option. Refer the screenshot below..
That’s it. Now restart your android phone. Next time whenever you visit android market application, it will never perform an auto update in the background.
However, if you want to upgrade to the new android market anytime in future, then just perform the reverse action – open link2sd, find market updater and unfreeze/defrost it followed by the reboot.
