Question Is it possible to prevent OTA update by creating abnormal folder?

I have read an article which said you could use the CMD command "md abc..\" to creat an folder which cannot be delete in normal ways.(
I wonder is it possible to prevent OTA update in firmware>=5.12.2 by creating an "update.bin.tmp.partial" folder firstly and then creating a folder like "abc.." inside it. I tried to delete the "abc.." folder in debian by "rm -rf ./*" and failed, so is it means the folder cannot be deieted by Amazon OTA program?
