If you decided to stick a bit longer with KK and lollipop OTA notification is bothering you - this is how you can disable it without wakelocking your phone.

Get something which disable service receivers/listeners (not just service like Disable Service app does). If you disable SystemUpdate service - this will wakelock your phone - thanks to Google wonderful design, which become "better and better".

But instead you disable 3 receivers for that service:

com.google.android.gms.update.SystemUpdateService$ Receiver - this will run on boot completed.

com.google.android.gms.update.SystemUpdateService$ ActiveReceiver - this will check for OTA on connectivity change.

com.google.android.gms.update.SystemUpdateService$ SecretCodeReceiver - this will check for OTA when your phone "handles" the secret code.

So, by doing this, SystemUpdateService will never have a chance to get OTA and you phone will still sleep like a baby.

Now, what apps will allow to disable receivers? Well, I compiled my own Autostarts. It's old but still job can be done.

You can find something in play store or I can upload my autostarts if you want me to.

Anyway, in summary do not disable GooglePlayServices.SystemUpdate service just its 3 receivers.

EDIT: Here, this is autostarts I've compiled long time ago but still can be run on KK and of cause ads free. Well, you have to "hunt down" those 3 receivers. Just open up one by one and read if this is one of those 3 and then disable it.

Thanks OP! I just used Autostarts and hunted for those 3 receivers. Now we wait and see if it worked.

I would like to receive your Autostarts.

I found several autostart apps on Play. Which is the one to install and use?

Autostarts is free in F-Droid. And the method works perfect.
