Thanks for the fixes above. Now the obvious question to which I can't seem to find the answer. Isn't there some way to avoid the push in the first place. I have not found a custom ROM that suits my needs yet, though I have tried a few. I keep reverting back to the original. Now that these OTA updates keep getting forced it has become a real pain. The wipe cache / reboot method works for me, but this process can take upwords of 10 minutes by the time you realize the phone is boot looping. Thanks for the help in advance!
