    Cant Block 2.1 Help!!!

    Hey people, I currently have my Robot Rooted and I love it but I have a problem. My phone keeps trying to ask me to install the official OTA 2.1 update which I definitely dont want. I thought that the custom Roms block OTA updates? is there anything I can do? thanks.
    P.S.- Im running the last version of sholes before they changed to droid mod
    -Also people eager for the update that still havent gotten it. I live in Michigan an got it early this morning If that helps...

    Try removing the update zip file from your SD card. Someone said that works.

    If you apply a rom or theme - backup first!
    If you don't know how to backup...Stop until you do.
    hint: I name my backups like this: sg6.0_20100428 or ss4.2_20100626 to easily find them later. rom and date.

    Not again...

    1. make sure you have SPRecovery 0.99.3b installed
    2. make sure otacerts.zip is untouched and just fine. download from this forum if you don't have it. make sure it has the right protections/ownership.
    3. let the update occur
    4. when it asks to reboot to complete, LET IT
    5. you will be rebooted to SPrecovery WHICH BLOCKS THE UPGRADE. DON'T UPGRADE. Just make sure the menu is on "reboot" and press the camera button.

    you will reboot. Your system will think you updated. It will not prompt you again.
