Default [Q] Stop Update

Is there a way to stop the new update that is rolling out on the Note 3? Will it auto update? I am having trouble finding this information and I would really hate for it to update my things with all the modifications I have.
1. Current Devices: AT&T Samsung Galaxy Note 3
Rooted, Safestrap
ZeroLemon 10,000MaH
32gb Micro SD Class10

2. AT&T Samsung Galaxy S4<-Stock, Rooted, SafeStrap
3. Samsung Galaxy Gear<-Stock

Since you're modified, freeze the app "at&t software update". Then it won't update no more. Unfreeze it when you want to update.

I used an app called "root uninstaller" and had it disable the updates. I haven't been hit with any updates since.

I use Titanium Backup Pro. I freez it until I want to use it.

So what does one do when there is no such app (at&t software update") in my app drawer? Why can't I find it?

My phone is modified, but I have not purchased Titanium Pro, how do I "freeze" an app?

If "att software update" isn't under the "all" tab, then you deleted it. You can't get it back unless you did a backup. In order to receive any updates now you can try with kies, or find the thread titled "restore to MJ5" and update from there.

In order to "freeze" an app you have to use an app manager. Like titanium pro, or do some searching for a different one.
