    I just rerooted my phone with the newest TBH 2.3.6 Odin and it's already complaining it needs a system update. Last time this happened it lost my root. Anyone know of a way to disable the auto update. I can dismiss it but it keeps randomly popping up and is getting to be quite the pain...

    Thanks,
    Jadraxx

    TBH? EDIT: Team Black Hat (or something like that anyway)?

    If you change the EP4s in ro.fingerprint (or something similar to that) in build.prop (located in /system/) to FP1s it should stop the ota notifications.

    Use root explorer (or similar app), and locate the build.prop file in the system folder. Open file in text editor and change the following line:


    ro.build.fingerprint=verizon/SCH-I510/SCH-I510:2.3.6/GINGERBREAD/EP4:user/release-keys

    To:

    ro.build.fingerprint=verizon/SCH-I510/SCH-I510:2.3.6/GINGERBREAD/FP1:user/release-keys


    There's several lines that have EP4 so make sure you find the correct line. Save and exit. Go to the /cache folder (on the root of phone) and if there's an update file in there delete it. Now reboot your phone and you should be good.
