Question disable ota on rooted AT&T G2??

I have been trying to find out how to disable the ota on an at&t lg g2. I previously had one, but was thrown into the twrp bootloop, so had to get a new device and root it. Nkw i am trying to figure out how to disable the future ota's. I dont have titanium backup pro, so cant freeze the update.. any help is appreciated...

if you arew rooted, go and download rom toolbox. open that up and click on app manager. when you see your apps, scroll down to the system apps and search for software updater. click on that then click freeze.

A user in the G Flex forums pointed this out.. seems to have worked for the Flex users.. I havent used it personally(I have no OTA nagging me).

Post was HERE by user @canecbr600

Enter LG Hidden Menu...
Click WLAN Test/WLAN Service/WiFi Setting --> Click OTA --> Click disable

LG Hidden Menu dialer codes...
3845#*800# (for At&T model)
3845#*801# (for T-Mobile variants)
3845#*802# (for European variants)
3845#*803# (for Canadian variants)
5689#*980# (for Sprint model)
