I have a stock (running 12B) rooted Verizon LG G2 and I'm very sure I don't want 4.4.2 on it. I don't see any "FOTA"-type app names in Titanium Backup. Is there a way to keep the phone from downloading or prompting to install OTA updates?

There is a Verizon "hidden menu" app, but I haven't figured out how to access it. It doesn't open using the 3845#*980# dial code that I found in a few places on the web. Maybe there's another way to access this? For some phone versions OTA can apparently be disabled via a carrier-specific hidden menu.

search software update
Used titanium backup to search for an app called "software update muc" and freeze that. As far as I know that should prevent the phone from nagging you about the update or downloading it.
