    A rooted phone won't update. (It'll receive the update, run to somewhere around 25% checking things, find that the phone's been rooted, and "fail". (It's really saying, "sorry, it's not safe to update a phone that's been rooted at any time in the past", but they just give us the failure notice.

    If you want to avoid even seeing the notices that there are updates (and the forced download eventually), freeze (you can use Link2SD) the Updater app (the ROM I'm currently using has it removed, so I don't remember if it's under U for Updater, S for Samsung Updater or, in my case A for AT&T Updater). Then you can unfreeze it if they ever get Lollipop working, or if there's something in Android 6 worth updating to. (I'll have to reflash the stock ROM to get it back and update if I ever want to.)

    You can't stop the updates without rooting unless you never have Wifi or Mobile Data turned on.
