    Color me
    Hook - ADB is a tool that is a part of the Android SDK that you load on a PC, Mac or Linux machine. You can download the SDK from:
    Android SDK | Android Developers
    Thanks for the answer. I see it and it wrote something to terminal in my Mac. I still have no idea what it's for.
    Hook, it's a developers kit for making software on the OS, part of it's functions allow you to load files to the phone. ADB is Android Device Bridge - which lets you do that, but it is terminal based, and most users will now use files already packed into an update, because that method is easier for them.

    Yes, you could do that, Chevy and a few others have released untouched rooted ROMS for those of us who want them, I'm sure they'll have that in the first week after release.
    Thanks! Figured it would be the same process as when I installed my current clean rooted 2.1 ROM. Thanks for the reply!

    Incorrect, Only if the ROM renamed the otacerts.zip file will the OTA be blocked.
    Correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't we not suppose use the otacerts.zip method anymore? As has been my understanding from back in the day. I don't know if this still applies. Quote:

    ( If you rename otacerts.zip, it doesn't prevent the over the air update from downloading - it just prevents the complete downloaded file from passing the security test. If the download doesn't pass the security test, it simply tries again. Over and over and over again, downloading a 15MB file, destroying your battery life.

    The solution is to allow it to download, and even allow it to install. It will copy the downloaded file to /sdcard/update.zip, reboot into recovery and attempt to automatically install it. Luckily, SPRecovery now blocks update.zip installs by default. Just allowing it to ATTEMPT to install the OTA update is enough to make it stop downloading over and over again. As you can see by my battery graph, as soon as I was able to make it stop trying to update, the battery usage leveled off.)


    I don't know why users did it that way. I just delete SytemUpdater.apk, an that always seem to work for me.

    If nobody receives it tonight, just wait a few days and hopefully we'll get it via ota update.
