    Stop OTA Update

    Greetings,

    My phone seems to have downloaded the OTA update and keeps asking me if I want to install the update. Almost every time I unlock my phone it pops up and asks me and I have to click "Install Later." Does anyone know how to turn this prompt off as I do not want to update and lose root access.

    Thanks!

    You could always SBF your phone and install TBH's 2-part Rooted GB. Then you'd be updated and rooted.

    Here's a walkthrough:
    From Liberty 2.0.1, Stock, Apex, CM7, etc. (ANY ROM) to Liberty GB

    If you don't want to install a custom ROM, just don't install the LGB 0.x zip at the end.

    You can freeze bloat and/or the updater file. Or install the rooted GB files.

    Droid X rooted .596

    If you want to install the rooted GB flash, you need to SBF back to Froyo and turn on airplane mode first. Or you could possibly run into what I did....

    I SBF'd back to Froyo, but before I could root and reboot to recovery, the OTA .596 update came up and asked me to install. I hit later, rebooted and wiped data and flashed the .596 rooted zip. So I then boot into GingerBread, and the damn OTA update started coming up again even though I was on .596 already!

    So I did another SBF, turned on airplane mode and prevented the update check. This may not happen to everyone, but it did to me so just warning you.
    Droid X rooted .602. Overclocked to 1.15ghz at 60 volts. Can run 1.4ghz stable.

    When I decided to go with a custom rom, I started with a sbf. I wanted to have a "clean" device to start with. You should. IMHO, also do the following:

    Make sure you wipe cache(s) AND factory reset before leaving recovery. When you reboot there are no remains from previous installs.

    After I SBF'd back to Froyo I rooted, installed D2 bootstrap, then the TBH pre-rooted 2 part. Also wipe and factory reset and davlick wipe before reboot.

    If it asks for OTA update before you get to install the 2 part, choose cancel or later. That info will be gone when you wipe/factory reset and never ask you again.

    Wait to sign in to your google account, if you have one, until after you're up and running the 2 part. It's pointless to do it before.

    If he is already on GB, an sbf is just a preference. I have tried it both ways and can't say it really mattered.

    Very true. The only reason I did it that way was the instructions I followed recommended to start with an SBF.

    Use Bloat Freezer from the market. Its only $.99 and works great. The developer is awesome and if you have any problems with it, he will bend over backwards to help you

    I know this thread is several months old but I'd like to know what the option is to the recommended solution since the Market no longer has an app by the name mentioned above. My TB is now rooted with S-OFF, confirmed, and I've used Ti Backup for the apps and data just now (flawlessly executed).

    In the Market, I found an app called Root Uninstaller which appears to be the new name for the app mentioned above, but it doesn't have listed on the apps, anything called 'Updater'. What are other options to freeze the pesky OTA Updater?

    Thanks!
