PROCEDURE to disable the Google Official OTA updates completely:

*. You need to be rooted for this.
1. Install this app: Disable Services and open it.
2. Select the 'System' tab.
3. Select the "Google Services Framework" app and uncheck (disable) the following service: SystemUpdateService
4. Come back and select the "Google Play Services" and uncheck this service: SystemUpdateService

Tested and working on Android One devices & Google Nexus.


That's it! You'll never get the update notification and neither will you be able to check it manually.

If you, by chance, feel you want the update, you can re-enable these services again to receive updates.

Reasons why you might not like the 5.1 OTA update:
1. It is too materialistic!!
2. It doesn't support Xposed as of now.
3. You're too used to KitKat and abundant Mods available for it.

1. Install this app: Disable Services and open it.
2. Select the 'System' tab.
3. Select the "Google Services Framework" app and uncheck (disable) the following services:
a. CheckinService
b. SystemUpdateService
4. Come back and select the "Google Play Services" and uncheck this option: 'SystemUpdateService'

That's it! You'll never get the update notification and neither will you be able to check it manually.

If you, by chance, feel you want the update, you can try re-enabling these services again, but this will help only till Google is giving the batch updates. Otherwise, there are many download links for it, so just download and flash it via recovery if required.

P.S. This thread may seem weird, but there are people who would really need it. And it's just for them

Ha Ha Ha !!!
who will do it?? LoL...
Then Whats the meaning of buying a Android one Smartphones..

You are really a fool.!!!!!!!!!!

Yes it will. But you can just disable play services notification to don't receive update notification. That will do the job too, instead of this procedure.

thanks a lot dude... play services was auto downloading andoid one updates without a notice thereby hogging my data and battery. I'm on custom rom and I can't see the point of that.. Anyway I think this tweak fixed the issue.. thanks again.
