Default Block OTA updates with XPosed?

Has anyone tried this XPosed mod to block updates?

http://repo.xposed.info/module/de.de...unbelovedhosts

I'm going to try it later today. Seems like it could be a good option.

No disabling anthing or altering the hosts file.

Not sure if there is a time delay response of "no address" and if it is better than a host file response 127.0.0.1and a retry that gets through. (if it's going to retry other ip's you may as well let it happen quicker) It may be better for those with limited data fees and added privacy and the other for unlimited data fees and less privacy based on retrys. Can you really stop the developer who hardcodes his ip advertisement pages and redirects at the device with this? if it does a dns lookup and matches outbound ip traffic rules based on IP then that would be slick.
