    I stupidly checked my phone for a new update and now I'm being pestered every minute or so with the official Verizon wireless update. It won't let me defer more than 5 days and will update automatically on the date and time I set. So, I've just been clicking the home button every time it appears.
    It's their a way to disable OTA updates through file explorer or titanium on the note 2? I have both and I'm rooted.

    I've checked other threads, but was unable to find the files they mentioned on my device.

    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Thanks for the replies guys. Will try and take the update. If that doesn't work I'll backup and restore

    In another forum I read it tells to Freeze/rename the following apps:

    SDM.apk
    FWupdate.apk
    Keychain.apk

    they are located in the /system/app.

    I changed the apk to bak after my last notification but don't know if it works because I defered it for the 5 days first.

    Here is the link: Stop OTA updates? - Android Forums at AndroidCentral.com
