This is a fix for SystemUpdateService wakelock on latest Play Services update.

Requirements:
  • Autostarts from F-Droid
  • Root
  • Privacy Manager/AppOpsXposed
Procedure:
  • If you have a built-in privacy guard on your rom,disable WAKEUP and KEEP AWAKE of Google Play Services(recommended).If you don't have it, try AppOpsXposed
  • Open Autostarts and grand root access.
  • Search for SystemUpdateService and disable the following receivers

  1. SystemUpdateService$ActiveReceiver
  2. SystemUpdateService$Receiver
  3. SystemUpdateService$SecretCodeReceiver

  • Now reboot the device and enter recovery
  • Wipe Dalvik Cache and Reboot
  • Recheck if the receivers stay disabled on reboot

If you still have the wakelock.Try this
  • If you have already disabled the update services using any other tools,you'll have to re enable them before trying this.
  • Now try the above fix.
  • Wipe Dalvik Cache and Reboot
  • Now look for the wakelock.
  • Report Here

No more SystemUpdateService wakelocks


Here's the screenshot after the fix.No more Google Play Services in battery stats.

Thanks for your post - But I think that it's also device specific - I've got a Note 4 with the latest play services - The fix for not getting Deep Sleep was to toggle NFC off and on - Reboot.
Sleeping like a baby - This fix has solved the play services issue for numerous other Note 4 owners running AOSP Roms & the latest play services.. 😉

I've installed Autostarts stand alone on Paranoid Android rom, based on Android 4.4.4 (Play Service 7.0.97), and i don't find the three services mentioned in OP. It's normal?
