    Ok now I got my new phone and getting it setup again......

    Is there a way to stop the phone from checking for OTA updates? Haven't seen it prompt me yet to update but just in case I want to make sure I remove any chance I might hit update by chance.

    You need to freeze/rename:
    SDM.apk
    FWupdate.apk
    Keychain.apk

    First folder that says "app"

    Edit. Oh I thought you couldn't find the directory. ... those apps are not there and you are still getting update warning?

    Hello DROIDXcon, re: your reply, I'm using the Verizon - Samsung Galaxy note 2. I found all the files you mention in your post, however it don't seem to allow me to rename them. I have rooted and have the TWRP recovery. I am using esfile explorer and I accepted the su permissions. Again I click rename but it doesn't seem to take. Also, next to each file there is an odex file with the same name. Should I rename those first.

    I hate to just delete since you can't get them back. Since I'm a noob and hate to have a $800 paper weight, I felt it necessary to clear it up lol.

    Thank you in advance

    You should just be able to freeze them with something like mybackup or a rom toolkit

    Open ES explorer then hit menu button. Scroll down to root settings and select. Then check off the first two boxes. Then you should be able to change files.

    Rename .odex to something like .bak1 doesn't matter which one you change. Infact I don't think you need to change it at all.

    Always have a backup ready from TWRP as a general rule aswell

    Assuming you are rooted, install Titanium Backup and then you can simply find the app listed there in alphabetical order and freeze it.
    I am running Jelly Bean Domination 13.0 and have been getting update requests about every two hours and ignoring them but they keep coming back.

    I went in to Titanium Bkup and froze System Update 1.4.34 and Key Chain 4.11. So far, so good.

    Hey I know you have samsung, but you can do this with an evo, and i believe stock can do it too:

    1)You get the little ota alert in your notification center,so you tap it to see what it brings, DO NOT TAP OK, just simply press back to get out of it.
    2)next go into settings, system updates, then HTC SOFTWARE UPDATE, or your devices respective manufacturer, and uncheck the "check automatically" box
    3) make sure your phone is unplugged from any computer or outlet, then power off phone.
    4) remove battery
    5) poweron phone, then quickly turn of internet as it botts, (preferably from the lock screen)
    6) the ota alert should still be there. poweroff and reboot phone.
    7) remove battery again, fro 10 seconds, then place in and boot up,
    8) the alert in the pull down menu should now be gone.
    9) ENJOY!!!

    Hello-

    I am Rooted on a Galaxy S3 (AT&T) running 4.1.1. I can't locate the main apps to be frozen in order to block auto OTA updates? I can find then via ES File Explorer but not sure how to freeze them since I can't locate the files within Titanium? Please help.

    Thank you!

    Try long pressing (or similar method) on the specific files in ES File Explorer to see if it shows file details or some other clue that will reveal the file path or other information that you could then feed into a Titanium Backup search. Another option to consider is going with Root Explorer. Given you're rooted its a great app to have, and can reveal the apk location among many other things.

    I searched for "keychain", without quotes, and Root Explorer returned the following: /system/app/KeyChain.apk

    Hello, OK I'm a newbie on here I admit it I just got the S4 from VZW and while I don't want to root it yet, I'd like to know what I app specifically I can d/l that will allow me to freeze those system files so that I can then rename them (hopefully a freebie). The phone is bugging me to do the update, but I don't want to right now I cancel or kill my connection or switch to airplane mode but sooner or later it's going to get me for sure.

    Thanks!

    Since your rooted go into /etc/security and rename otacerts.zip to otacerts.bak. Then reboot and wipe your cache, as that's where they are stored. That should stop both the update notification and keep you from receiving anymore.
