    I have a Moto G 2nd gen with 5.0.2, and after multiple accidents, partly due to fat fingers, the 6.0 update is now ready to be installed, but I do not need or want 6.0.

    How can I abort this update?

    TIA

    Welcome to Android Central! What screen are you on right now? If the installation hasn't started yet, can you tap the Back or Home button? You could always force a shutdown as well by pressing and holding Power for 10-15 seconds -- but make absolutely sure the update hasn't started installing.

    This is the current state -- obviously, I want a permanent abort, not just clicking "Later" every time I use my phone.

    See if this works: https://www.quora.com/How-do-I-preve...Moto-G-2nd-gen. But the article was written about preventing the Lollipop update while on KitKat. I'm not sure if being on Lollipop already makes it harder to disable the update service.
