Is there a way to disable Updates with the new KFHD? I just found threads about the old 2012 Version.

Look around in the general section, I don't personally keep up-to-date with the latest method. Last I heard there was an apk called something dtc that we would rename, but I can't remember if that was before or after people kept getting updated anyway.

Blocking/blacklisting the service Amazon Device Client Platform (ADCP) from using Wi-Fi with something like Android Firewall (Requires Root) should be enough to stop any Amazon OS Updates.

I'm not sure of it's APK name in /system but renaming it to something like "name.apk.bak" may just be as good but might cause system stability issues if you still want to use other Amazon services on the device, for that I'd suggest using the above Wi-Fi blocking method in any case.

It certainly works on the 2012 model, I'm still on 7.2.3
