I did this in 4.7 and in 5.0.
It never worked.
The only true sure fire way to not have it check for updates is to unplug your ethernet cable/wireless dongle.
It scans your vendor code and model, ges back to its server, picks up the OS numbers for your model and goes "you need to do this"
Usually on core applications and some languages.
Theres no other way to disable it.
