    I'd just like to know the name of the file that I can freeze in Titanium Backup that will prevent OTA updates on my Note 10.1 (2014 edition). I found it on my Note 2 and 3 but can't find it on the 10.1. It must have a different name on this device. Please help!

    Thanks.

    Since he using TIB to freeze it, so sure his device is rooted then.
    Dont know which one of them, but freeze all 3: FWUpgrade, Softwareupdate x2 (dont know what its called in eng, since mine is in Swedish lang) (its a green icon with small arrow)
    But there are no need to freeze them, just uncheck do not check for update and also it wont update yours device until you click yes to update it.

    Yea but on this device if your rooted you will not receive ota. Tripping knox bit prevents that.

    Rooted devices can still recieve OTA updates and just installing it will fail.

    Not on this device man, this one is the only one that's different due to Knox.

    I thought the Note 3 was also 'Knoxified'...

    KNOX have nothing to do with OTA updates and its custom recovery that cause OTA updates fails. If using stock recovery/stock firmware and it will let you update, but root will be lost.

    I beg to differ, stock recovery and a custom ROM or root with Knox being tripped will not allow ota

    Yes, but you wouldn't be rooted anymore either so that's my point. With root on this device, you won't get ota. I'm done arguing. Good day sir.

    Im done with this argument with you too, since u dont seems to understand that KNOX have nothing to do with OTA updates. I have KNOX and rooted mine Note 2, still can recieve OTA updates and install it. But will lose root after update. No need to explain it here, u can always ask the peoples at xda and reason why it works.

    If you read the post more carefully he clearly states "every device since the note 3" is 'knoxified' you're talking about the note 2, making your argument invalid.

    People, let's move on please. Just agree to disagree. This forum isn't doing anything positive for the community. Let this be the last of it.

    Controversy aside, now I'm REALLY curious as to whether root on the Note 3 and tablet will block OTA or not haha. I was under the impression that it would, but now I'm not sure anymore.

    I see a lot of people fighting on here whether or not this device gets OTA while rooted and how to block it.

    I have this device, I rooted it the day I got it (a few months ago) and disabled KNOX. I just received an OTA today.
    What I want to know is, since obviously the rooted devices still get OTA's, can I install this safely without losing root or bricking my tablet? I ONLY rooted it and disabled KNOX, I have the stock rom on it still and the stock recovery.
