Default How do I stop ota?

I've seen people mention in the past that you can freeze or rename a system app to prevent the ota checks. Anybody know how How on this device?

Try this...
go to settings, then Apps then scroll to the right to ALL and scroll down to Google Services Framework..click disable then uncheck the notifications box..that's it. Try that.

I tried several things last night to stop it. Went to bed last night and woke up with kitkat! Damnit! I know I can flash back and I know it's a minor thing but It takes at least an hour to backup and then get my phone back just the way I like it. I hate not having sd card. I will never buy another phone without one! Restoring a phone used to be so much easier.

If you're rooted and have customer recovery installed the OTA shouldn't install. It should fail and abort right after starting. Due to root and recovery. So I don't think there is anything to worry about. Unless you're completely stock out of the box. I know every time I've downloaded the update on a GS4 or RAZR maxx and tried to install it wouldn't. It just failed saying it couldn't find recovery or certain APks. And reboot back to the way I was.

Why click disable though? Just the notifications box did it for me
