After last night I'm running the rooted 4.4.2. I installed Titanium Backup Pro. How do I block OTA updates to protect my current installation?

Thanks.

If it's the deodexed version Beans already removed it. Otherwise freeze localFOTA or FotaClient. I also froze FWUpgrade, SamsungUpdates and the two Software Update apk's as well.

This is what I do to block updates to the phone that could take root away or other features unique to the leaked ROM. For browser ads you could try Adaway.

Your quick response shall be appreciated for me.

I don't see Adaway in the Play Store. You will have to use the link I provided.
