How do I disable the OTA update notification for my Rooted Droid X2
Freeze FOTA And Upgrader.
I've frozen both but had already had the update downloaded. I still get the popup asking me to install. Do you know where the OTA is located after download so I can try deleting it?
Try Looking On Either The Internal Or External Memory.
any filename/type i should keep an eye out for?
Update.zip That's An Educated Guess. Look Inside Zip Files If You Don't Recognize The Name, Look For Folders With The System, Dev, Etc Those Kinda Things.
I think it is placed in /preinstall... But I could be wrong. I was able to block the OTA by freezing 2 Updater apps.

Just curious what method do you use to freeze? I have the rooted gb and my phones still trying to update...thanks for any help
TiBu And Bloat Freezer Are The Top Two Choices.
Unleash The Beast!
Thanks Mike...ill give it a shot in a bit
I have a Droid X and a Droid X2 and ran into similar situations. I have the phone rooted and I'm very happy with the customizations that I have done to the phone running the stock ROM. Unfortunately, I received the OTA update and it automatically downloaded the update, which means that you'll get this nagging window every 2 hours or so asking you to install.
- I rooted my phone
- I removed some bloatware by renaming them *.apk to *.apk.bak (same as the below format but the below is important to prevent future updates)
- I renamed Fota.apk to Fota.apk.bak
- I renamed Upgrade.apk to Upgrader.apk.bak
- I allowed the update to attempt an install- The update should FAIL because key files are missing. (they're renamed to .bak)
- After the update failed, I was never prompted again to re-download or re-install
Hope this helps you out. This worked for me on not only my Droid X but also on my Droid X2.
Thank you reaktorblue, worked like a charm. I didn't need to rename anything, though, as it said I didn't have the right permissions.
All I did was download the update, then used Bloat Freezer to freeze FOTA.apk and Updater.apk, and it hasn't prompted me to update since.
This was done on my Droid 2 which I use as my alarm clock, so if it restarts itself into recovery, my alarms don't go off. Thanks again.
