    I downgraded back to Kitkat, disabled "automatic updates" and haven't had a problem with it reinstalling Lollipop. My phone is perfect again.

    How did you disable OS updates. Only one I see is @Play Store disable updates on apps installed

    Setting>About device>Software updates and unchecked "auto update" but this option may not be available depending on your model/carrier.

    When "auto update" is disabled the phone should notify you only once that an update is available and will give you the option to install it now or later, I clicked on "later". Then it asked me when I wanted to be reminded again, I chose "never" and the notification disappeared for good.

    That is carrier specific.

    You don't get to do that in the US.

    Yes, a carrier could. Not an option with AT&T.

    Sorry, I forgot to mention that I used 4G to do this because I thought wi-fi may automatically download the dreaded Lollipop but connected to it later on and didn't get any further update reminders or notifications.

    Every US carrier will force it on you eventually, if you have their branded phone.

    Don't know about other countries, etc.

    AT&T does not have that option, I downgraded to N910AUCU1ANIE and overnite while my phone wifi was turned off, it downloaded the C0C4, it can only be postponed three times and it will install it whether you like it or not.

    On my AT&T S5, the ONLY way I could stop the updater was because I was rooted and I could freeze the updater. That option to freeze was through a 3rd party app that only works on rooted devices, that is the only way I had access to that app that updates.

    Worked on my Verizon Note 4 back in Dec. 2014 (to stay on the original release KitKat firmware), haven't seen an update notice since (and no longer have the software update option in the menu settings). I just followed the instructions posted in the XDA thread. You may want to ask there why it's not working for you.
    You could stay on KitKat, but the Lollipop update made some problems with some US carriers and rolling back..
