Default How can I delete the 4.4.2 update without applying it?

Stock AT&T 4.4, not rooted. Still thinking about root.

I thought I've frozen update, Motorola OTA, and FOTA. But apparently I forgot.

Now I kept getting "New System Software Avaiable" notification.

Anyway to get rid of this notificaiton without applying the update?

I've tried to connect my device via USB to ADB but the computer does not seem to recognize it any more. Not even the camera / MTP connection works.

Thanks

How did you freeze those system apps without being rooted?

The update is downloaded to your cache. Go there and delete the update.

Oops just seen your not rooted so you can't access your cache I believe.

In Apps, you can disable an app. I just checked, updater and FOTA are disabled. But Motorola OTA does not allow disable right now

Even with adb?

If I wipe the cache, do I lose anything? (by the name of cache, I should not, but want to be sure)

Also, can anyone confirm if an unrooted device can have the MotorolaOTA disabled to avoid downloading the system updates?

Thanks

You can wipe the cache in the recovery menu if you have stock recovery. Follow these steps posted on Motorola's website. but on step 7 don't factory reset, just reset the cache instead.

EDIT: You won't lost anything

EDIT AGAIN: You need root to disable Motorola OTA since it's a system app.

The other way to clear cache... IF you have a proper setup of ADB and the Android Platform Tools.. (and can run fastboot from a command prompt)...

With the phone powered off and unplugged from the PC...

1. press the VOL DOWN KEY for 2-3 seconds then POWER key then release.

2. The device will display different BOOT OPTIONS. Just let it sit there.

3. Plug usb cable to PC

4. Open a command prompt and type...
fastboot erase cache
fastboot reboot


5. The phone should erase the cache, then reboot normally.

6. You may unplug the phone from the PC once the phone has started rebooting.

7. The first reboot after erasing the cache will take a little longer, and you may see messages like "updating applications" or such.

Your guys are right. After clearing cache, there is no way to disable Motorola OTA, even though updater and FOTA can be disabled.

If I update, is there a way to downgrade later?
