    I am new to rooting and all that and just noticed that the 77 mb ota is pushing through and is continuously downloading. I don't have any idea how to stop it. I am running Simply Stunning 4.7. Can someone please help??

    let it download and install and your recovery system should fail the install.

    I did let it completely download and it doesn't install or do anything. It just starts the download all over in a continuous cycle.

    yup if it downloaded properly it should already be in the update.zip format. make a backup first in case something were to go wrong

    Sounds like you still had the update.zip file for root/superuser access on the root of your sdcard. I think that if there is an update.zip present in the sdcard root, it supercedes anything in the cache folder in the phone's internal memory. The "apply sdcard::update.zip" function in clockwork recovery does just that..... it looks in /sdcard and if it finds "update.zip" in that location, it installs it.

    Just keep hanging around here and you'll learn tons! Figuring out everything about these phones would be next to impossible without the collective knowledge found on these forums and others like them.
