Default [Q] Preventing OTA Updates

Recently rooted my GS4. My understanding is one can prevent OTA updates only when rooted. If this is correct, can anyone walk me through that process?

Open this forum.
In the box in the upper right with the text "Search this forum", type "Block OTA"
There's a thread titled "How block OTA update messages/install after root?" that you should read to know what two programs to freeze.
My Android devices:
vzw Samsung Galaxy S4 stock MJ7, now rooted!
Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, also stock but rooted.

VZ Droid Incredible 2 rooted but otherwise stock.
Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1

Thank you. I used NoBloat to disable sdm.apk and fwupdate.apk.
