All the Smartphone users will be well aware about OTA update. All Smartphone manufacturers send new software updates to their devices via OTA (Over the Air) at intervals and moreover the newer a device, the more frequently it gets software updates. These OTA updates sometimes bring new features and bug fixes, and sometimes they bring major OS upgrades. No matter what device we might own, we all love new updates. However, there might be situations when we try to avoid them, especially when the device is rooted. The OTAs bring new goodies, but they also take away root access which you would have received with lot of efforts. There are some apps at the Google Play Store that let you keep root even after taking OTA updates but they do not work on all devices and require root access.
Some people freeze the stock software update client app using third-party apps but how would you feel if you are able to disable OTA on your device without root access, of course great. The bad thing about OTAs is that you get update notification persistently even after cancelling it which is very annoying. Sometimes, OEMs send new boot loader or some security patch that stops existing rooting and custom recovery methods from working.
