Default Annoying 4.4.4 update notifications

I guess it is official. 4.4.4 is now available OTA and it wants to take over my XT1045. I want nothing to do with 4.4.4, at least not right now. However, it keeps nagging me to update and does not give me the option to option out. I downloaded the file just to get it to shut up but that did not work. So I think I found the file and deleted it. However, the annoying message keeps popping up.

I searched and found several files to look for on my phone but I do not have them. I have no clue where the messages are coming from, or, how to STOP the OTA.

So I come to the community for assistance. What is driving the OTA and how can I terminate the auto OTA? Any assistance would be grateful. I am rooted, have ES File Explorer and NoBloat.

Go to /system/priv-app/ and find MotorolaOTA.apk and its odex and move/delete them.Or you can revoke all its permissions and that will render it useless.
Reboot and you're done with it.

If you don't have that app for some reason, look for 3c_OTA.apk
Mental issues lead to the use of long signatures

Care much for receiving Thanks?Bitching at the others about it doesn't help, instead better stfu and gtfo.

Wonderful.

I did not have the MotorolaOTA but I did have the 3c_OTA. I appended them with .BAK and rebooted. I will see what happens in a 24 hour period.

Thanks!

Update - 9/1/14 - That worked. Again, thanks!
