Default [HOW TO] Stop Google 4.4.3 Downloading

im sure this has been mentioned before, but im seeing it popup all over 4.4.2 rom treads. so, here's how to stop your nexus 5 continuously downloading the 4.4.3 update...

root is required you need a app manager with root permissions, I use rom tool box. in its app manager, select google services, then select advanced freeze and look for anything that is labeled 'update service' or similar, and freeze it! this will stop your phone downloading the update...
Galaxy S4 I9505, Rooted with SuperSU, Liquid Smooth Rom, CM Kernel... It's fast enough already

Nexus 7, Rooted With SuperSU, Unlocked Bootloader, Buttered AOKP, Faux's Kernel.

Xperia X10 Mini, Dead stock. Its my backup...

Well, if you have a custom recovery just take the update... It will fail. And that will be the end of that.... No mo update notices or downloads.

you can. but this is more for people getting hassled by the constant google notifications when the update doesn't download properly...

I've had 2 devices and this has never failed to work. It IS true.
My current phone hasn't had this issue since 4.4.2's release... Nada.

That worked. The pending 4.4.3 update went away after rebooting.

untick notifications in both..

Google play services
Google services framework

.. in settings/apps, you don't need root for this method

Does that eliminate notifications for all installed apps?
