    Can I cancel the .906 ota update?

    Hi Guys, so I searched the forum and Google and dont see anything related to this.
    I have a D3, rooted, Driod 3 Bootstrapper installed, stock rom 5.6.890 XT862 and accidentally hit the System Update option in the settings and now its prompting me to install .906.

    Is there any way to stop the install? I keep hitting remind me later, but I dont want it to just install itself if it does after the nag sreen expires or something.

    Any help is appreciated!

    Thanks!

    Personally, I'd let it install the update, reroot using Motofail for the D4 and reinstall the strap (though I'd recommend Safestrap vs. Bootstrap).....

    but that's just me

    Thanks for the response!

    I did get the screen to stop prompting me by freezing "update" in titanium...

    I wouldn't ming getting the update, but didn't want to brick my phone. The D1 did seem a lot easier to work with than this D3.

    So other than unfreezing the bloatware, is there anything else I need to do so my phone doesn't brick when I install the update?

    Thanks again!

    Remove bootstrap. There are files that need to be deleted in the system. Logwrapper files, but I can't remember where they are.

    I'm pretty sure the next time your phone reboots it'll automatically try to install the update. So I think at this point there is nothing you could really do.

    No, actually I have rebooted several times since Thursday night when I froze Update 2.3.4 in Titanium and I have not been prompted again.

    I also removed Bootstrap and installed Safestrap. I have yet to install another ROM, but I look forward to it.

    Since you're rooted, another thing you might do is go take a peek (I think it's in /cache) with an app like Root Explorer, and see if you can find the actual firmware file (Blur_Version5.6.890.XT862.Verizon.en.US.zip, plus a matching file ending in .crc). I assume the system periodically checks for these files on your phone, hence the reminder. To eliminate the reminder, I just moved them to my sdcard and no more nagging.
