Hi guys, I finally got a Moto X today to check out what's the hype all about! I'm very excited but also very new to Android and Moto X. So will need you help.

I'm currently on Verizon 4.2.2. I want to stay on it because I do use FoxFi and 4.4 breaks it. OTA did download on the phone but I delayed the installation. Is there anyway to delete the OTA download file and force stop the OTA?

I tried to force stop the MotorolaOTA but the download resumed after about 20 seconds every time.

I rooted the device thanks for the instruction on this sites. Is my easiest route to use the paid version of Titanium Backup to freeze the MotoOTA? I want to make sure it works before I go ahead and pay for it. Any other alternatives?

Thanks for your help in advance. I tried to browse through about 20 pages or so but didn't really find the answer so I created a new thread.

Yep, go ahead and buy titanium. It works perfectly on my phone. App quarantine does not see the app. Anyone have any free alternatives?

Do you have the developer edition or regular Moto X? What phone carrier are you on?

If foxfi is what is keeping you back, usb and Bluetooth tether still works for me. As you said Hotspot will not work.

If you're rooted on 4.4 there's instructions in a thread here to get the native WiFi tethering working. Just FYI.

So do I just update through OTA , root 4.4 again and then install that package from this thread with discoverer?

Also I heard 4.4 is a bit buggy so that's why I'm holding back to see what 4.4.2 brings.

Thanks for the reply!
