    Yikes! 621 OTA is trying to update me

    I just rooted my phone last night and now have everything in place to do a nandroid back up before sbf'ing to a new ROM and I just got a notice from VZW wanting to update me to OTA 621. WTF?

    Freeze the updater app (can't remember the name). That will stop it.

    edit: looked in the system dump I have on my laptop, its BlurUpdater_Vzw.apk

    i believe it should be like... blur-updater.apk../blur-verizon-updater.apk... it should be something like that...

    if it's downloaded... reboot into recovery... and wipe the cache... that should delete the file

    Scrolled thru everything listed in Titanium and nothing listed like that. I cancelled the download until later.
    Since I just did a nandroid backup will that update try and show up in the future if I ever sbf back using this backup?
    If I freeze stock apps like Blockbuster and Madden NFL that will stop the OTA from installing correct?

    Freeze the updater 2.3.3 and you'll be good. Wipe your cache partition also like nemo said.

    Why are you sbfing? Unless you just want to try to sbf which is fine but in your case there's no reason to if you just want to install a rom.

    May have used the wrong term. What I plan on doing is going to CM7. From what I was reading it was an sbf. But please correct me if I'm wrong cause I've read way too much info in the last 2 days!
