Greetings I have the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Verizon flavor and I used the most popular Towelroot which was simple, amazing, and just works however an OTA 4.4.4 has reared its ugly head and I know it would probably fail but I was wondering how to delete the update and what is the directory? I used DisableService and unchecked the google services for the OTA update so it does not continue to bug me however I know the update is still there and I would like to maybe rename it to .bak or delete it from the system folder so just in case Verizon tries to install it on its own accord. So question is where is the directory and what file should I delete or rename

Thank You in advanced

I'm new to the Note and I would like to disable the update until I can get it to work with Towelroot also.

So an update I just frooze the SDM.apk and that seemed to for now stop the annoying update request I think this is temporarily fixed still would like the proper way to stop it from trying to update

Also for the individual who replied to my post towelroot works with certain builds so go to the Web site and check your build on the Note

This is not temporary and it IS the correct way to prevent further updates on our devices. Disabling or completely removing sdm.apk is the way to go. Should not have to worry about that update now.
