I have been running the latest Smoked Glass rom for about three weeks. I have never seen a popup asking me to install 2.1. If I check System Updates it does say that I can download 2.1 and install it though.
I have been concerned about 2.1 downloading continuously in the background. I have downloaded the update and rebooted in an attempt to get SPRecovery to block the update, hopefully tricking the phone into believing it's now current but that did not work. I also downloaded the otacert.zip file and placed it into the proper folder. I did this three ways. Once renaming it with the .bak extention and including it with the current file, once removing the default file completely and leaving the new file with the original .zip extension only, and once renaming the original file with the .bak extension.
In all cases I then proceeded to download the update and reboot my phone. It never booted into recovery to try to install the update and I still see the update available in my System Updates button.
To be clear. I do NOT want the 2.1 update to succeed. I simply want my phone to say it id currently up to date so that I can be sure 2.1 is not trying to download in the background.
Maybe I shouldn't worry about it? I can really tell if the battery life is shortened because my phone stays plugged in almost all day in a car dock at work. Just yesterday though I began to wonder as I had it out for about an hour and saw an unexpected drop in battery life. I dismissed it as a fluke and haven't bothered to try to recreate the issue.
Is there a way to get my phone to think it's up to date just in case?
