    Which ever you don't want the app to access to. If you don't know what your doing then it's better to not mess with it otherwise you will cause apps to stop working properly.

    I got it to stop annoying me by doing this;

    Settings >
    App >
    All >
    Find "Google Service Framework" >
    Force Stop >
    Clear Data and then Disable

    I've yet to get that annoying update notice again (I have two Moto G's, one running 4.4.2 and one running 4.3). The screen on the one running 4.3 is definitely brighter when using the automatic brightness. Not sure if it's just my two devices, though.
    GOOGLE play stops working!! so this option is out of the game

    1st galaxy note 3 was disaster after kitkat update. It basically disabled my sd card. I was mad!!!. It wouldn't let me revert back to jellybean 4.3. I imediately swapped note 3 for another before my 14th day. Tried everything on forums to stop download of kitkat system notification, but to no avail. Then got wind that after 2 wks the kitkat would download automatically w/out my permission! I went into a panic to figure this out before it was to install kitkst on my 2nd unreturnable phone & destroy it too. So far so good. I originally had disabled "Google framework services".in apps manager, like the post said to do, but it didn't work either. This is a no-root solution that worked for me. I take no responsibility to damage to your phone for this. As its just what.has worked so far for me. It's not a perfect solution, but it seems to have worked & the kitkat downloaded notification has stopped pinging me to upgrade to kitkat!
    If you already have upgraded to kitkat, this might not work for you. Here's what I did. WARNING: Before going forward with this, back up all your data. Send pics.videos to sd card or store in cloud.Unmount your sd card. Power down phone & remove sd card. Power phone back up.
    1)Go to setting, click on general settings,
    Click on "Back up & restore" , then click on "FACTORY DATA RESET"...When you do phone will reset to like it was new out of box. Everything you put on or changed will be erased, but the kitkat notification will be removed also! Not sure if it will work if kitkat is already installed before factory data reset. You can try & see. When phone reboots, it will at some point ask you to keep on the "Sprint wifi optimizer to save battery power. IGNORE THAT REQUEST & make sure it is off or otherwise "unchecked" so it won't search out & lock on wifi signals when it finds them. -DONT SKIP THIS STEP-
    2) Click on settings, click on "general",
    Click on "system update".
    3) Un-check "Auto-update" if it is checked.
    4)Do check "Downloadable on.wi-fi only"
    5) If it is checked, uncheck"Download update on wireless network" (very important).
    6)Back out to general setting again.
    7) Scroll down & click on "Security" Note: if you're using you phone your for banking, you might reconsider this step. As I do all my internet purchases with a prepaid card for safety.anyway.
    8)Scroll down to "Security update services".
    9) Uncheck "security policy updates". This prevents it from automatically checking for & downloading any updates to security such as is noted in the kitkat
    update which is why they basically disabled the sd card on the.phone.
    10)Look at "VIA WIFI ONLY" right under this section and make.sure to uncheck it if it is checked. It says it will only update security policy when connected to wifi.
    So far I haven't seen the kitkat system update download to the notification bar since I done these changes. Its been 4 dsys so far. If you use WI-FI again though, it will immediately start the kitkat download again to notification bar. I tried it momentarily. It started kitkat download, I shut off wifi real quick to make it fail . Thank goodness it worked so I would have to do another factory data reset to reset the kitkat 13 day automatic download clock again. It appears that.in.a hurry, you can do a factory data reset to start the clock over if you don't have time to do the above steps right now. That's what I did. Its was better to me to reset than to loose my operational sd card forever. Can't return this phone again. I've got 3g at home & 4g most.of the time. So the 4g.is fast enough for me to live with without having to depending on a.wifi connection.
    I also have an un-limited data plan thru sprint. I can live with it. Depending.on.your data plan this might not wk for you on verizon or At&t. But it was the only way I could keep my sd card operational, which is why I bought this phone. If you discover easer option to stop the kitkat update, pls reply. If this wks for you too. Pls let me know in the reply section. Hope this helps.

    Does anyone know if you just shut off security updates if it will stop the kitkat update?

    The only way to stop updates is to freeze MotorolaOTA with Titaniumbackup or such app, after gainin ROOT.
    That's what I did.
    This is how I rooted: http://forums.androidcentral.com/mot...ml#post3519245
    This is what happened when I installed kitkat by pressing install by mistake: http://forums.androidcentral.com/mot...ml#post3518299

    The reason the update does not install properly is not because you are rooted, its cause you have a custom ROM. You would have had to have a custom recovery like TWRP in order to root, so whether you realise it or not, you got one. In order to install ota update, you first flash stock recovery. In case you have soft bricked your phone, you would now need to install stock ROM.

    Once you have attempted to install ota update after flashing custom recovery and rooting, you have messed up your phone for good. So your only option now is to flash stock ROM.

    Here's my solution Solution to disable OTA update (kitkat) WITHOUT ROOTING

    I was thinking of actually powering off your phone when it is 2 weeks. If it doesn't work, then rooting might be the only way to disable it. Also, would it work if you completely reset your phone? I was curious to see if it will also reset the system update. (the one that was downloaded)





    I hope this helps.

    did you not read the solution i posted prior to your message?

    it will work.

    the reason why my solution will work, and yours (factory reset) will not, is primarily because factory reset wipes /data and /cache. once the factory reset is complete, it will again initialise the download of ota.

    however if you wipe the cache from recovery using method i posted, it will not reinitialise the download. afterwards you let it install, but it will have nothing to install, and will throw an error, and give up, and you stay on jellybean.

    After clearing cache, will it keep throwing up error messages ?

    Sooo... apparently kit Kat isn't a good thing to have?

    The worst thing about kitkat is that it doesnt let 3rd party apps write to your sd card. For instance a picture editor or even picture vault can no longer write to your sd card off of google play. It makes it so ONLY the apps that came on your phone can write to the sd card. So your phone gallery you can move pictures from your internal storage to sd card but a downloaded gallery viewer cannot. Picture vaults you could decide where the pictures were stored...of course 64gb sd card holds more than 16gb internal memory that is already half used by phone systems... so now say you have 8gb of....ahem...not so good pictures on your phone which are stored on your sd card...you use a picture vault to hide them....on jellybean it would hide from gallery and store within the vault app on your sd card. Kitkat makes it so those pictures on your sd card are still hidden, but the app can no longer write to your sd card so it puts all 8gb on your internal. So options are dont hide them at all if you dont care....or delete them if you want nobody to see. Same with any song or ringtone editor altho you may be able to move that file from one internal folder to an sd card folder by a phone supplied file manager because the manager was on the phone originally. Just makes the steps harder. If you have a phone that lets you hide folders from the gallery then that works kinda but is still able to be retrieved most likely without a password like the downloaded vaults have.
    I understand why phones need to update especially from verizon ad such but they should only update while youre under your contract. I think something you buy outright shouldnt force updates. My galaxy tab3 is prompting for kitkat right now and I think I shouldnt have to since I bought it outright with no service agreements. Its like buying lemon lime gatorade and them changing to fruit punch because they think its better. Kit kat makes sd cards useless to a point...

    I solved my issue by only disabling the notification.
    Press the notification app and keep pressing until you get an "App info" menu.
    Tab the "App info" button and you will get into the process details.
    Uncheck the "Notification" checkbox.

    The download (there are few hundreds of MB) will remain on your device but you will get rid of the notification.
