    Can I refuse all Android updates - even small ones?

    Is it possible to set up a phone to refuse any and all Android updated? I'd like to set up my Moto E 2015 so that it does not install ANY Android updates at all after 5.02. I want to prevent the installation of 5.1 in order to avoid disabling band 12 but I don't know if Android allows one to reject absolutely all updates. Any ideas? Is this realistic? Just to make it clear, I don't care at all about upgrades, new features etc.

    Generally you can't stop updates unless your phone is rooted.

    Ah, that's annoying. Well maybe it won't affect my coverage. It's just that I had read somewhere that band 12 was very useful in Los Angeles. If so, I will just have to learn to root the damn thing. Can't be that hard . . .
