I keep finding that my NP has rebooted itself into custom recovery TWRP.

My suspicion is that it's automatically attempting to apply the last security update and finding the custom recovery and therefore failing. This ultimately means it's rarely available to cast to and always has to be rebooted or unplugged so that it's restarted prior to any intended use - which as you can imagine is extremely frustrating.

My device is rooted running latest 5.1.1 with custom recovery.

How can I manually disable this ota application? Anyone know of any build.prop amendments or can i side load servicely and do anything....

Cheers

I second the aforementioned question. Want to know the exact same thing. Currently running LolliRock 2.1 but considering going stock, rooted, and Xposed route possibly under 5.0 to keep the 3 dot menu support but wanted to disable OTA.

Best way I found is, just after you setup your NP, go on google and change your gmail password. That way your NP won't have connection with Google Play... but this has cons as well, as you won't have access to update/install new apps from google play, so only do this after you have setup your NP with all the apps you need.

Apologies, found a solution in another NP thread and forgot to post the answer.

I'm still on v5.1.1

See below, although as you read

Service >> System >> Search >> Google Play Services >> Disable SystemUpdateService.

Service >> System >> Search >> Google Services Framework >> Disable SystemUpdateService.

Unfortunately this also stops your applications from being able to update.

When updated through play they said 'install pending' when I re enabled the above services they updated.

I haven't encountered any issues with updating apps on my Nexus Player with Android 6.0 or my Nexus 5 with Android 5.1 after disabling SystemUpdateService through the My Android Tools app. The method I described has worked perfectly on both of my devices.
