    This is Pete's FRG01B OTA notification patch I modded to work with Verizons FRG22D OTA.

    First off, this is 99.9999% Pete's work, its just tweaked by your truely. Petes got his hands tied having to rebuild v0.5 so I figured this would save him time.

    Tested on two droids with no issues.

    Same Instructions apply as his previous patch
    Download
    Place on SD Root
    Boot Into Recovery
    No Data or Cache Wipe needed
    Install Update.zip
    Reboot
    Enjoy

    Again, Pete, if you have an issue with this being posted, please let me know and ill remove it, just trying to help out.

    I am not running BB .4, just a rooted version of 2.2. Will this work on that as well?

    I installed the zip file but I'm still getting the notification. Should I just make it attempt to install the OTA update?

    Take a took at petes original patch. He left it as frg22 and I didn't understand why. I figured might have had something to do with the "trick" he was trying to pull on the ota or something. So I opted just to mimic him. He left it as the previous build number so I followed. In the end it really didn't have an impact in the final outcome. I appreciate the check though.

    I installed when I was on BB and a few days later it asked me again, but it was still worth it as I wasn't asked all day long.

    The update will just reboot your phone, fail to update, and then you can boot your phone back up... takes a few min and not a big deal @ all, but this is just a band-aid and the update will prompt you again in a few days.

    Just try to install the ota like its asking you to. If petes old patch is working fine, it should fail the install and reboot you back to normal. You only need this if it locks up on you and you have to do a battery pull like the select few. if you need to, dolphin browser and oi file manager is what I use to download and move the file to sd root.

    Bartl3by i have a quick question

    I've installed the FRF84BV04.zip ROM and i'm still getting the OTA popup. I noticed you listed FRG22D, are these two the same? Like FRG22D is the OS Version and FRF84BV04 is the ROM Version? If so, will this patch Completely stop the OTA popup?

    Ok so you installed the entire BB v0.4 with frf84bv04. Now go to peteralfonso.com and download the patch he posted regarding stop ota notifications. It should be the first topic on his home page. Throw it onto the root of your sd card like you did that previous rom. Once its installed, reboot and ALLOW the ota that verizon is pushing to try and do its thing. It should fail out in the process and reboot your phone. Petes patch should make the ota stop showing up after that.

    Again, this patch in my original post is only for those who are experiencing lockup and have to battery pull after the update fails.

    from GirLuvsDroid on androidforums.com

    Hopefully, you have Root Explorer (and if you don't, I highly recommend it because it's so worth the couple of bucks). Here are the instructions to prevent to the FRG22D OTA update (which I was getting yesterday myself):

    1. In Root Explorer, go to /system/
    2. Tap Mount R/W at the top, then long-press on build.prop and scroll down to Open in Text Editor
    3. Once the file is open as a text file, scroll down until you see the line that says: "ro.build.fingerprint=verizon/voles/sholes/sholes:2.2/FRG01B/45394:user/release-keys" and change it to read as follows:
    ro.build.fingerprint=verizon/voles/sholes/sholes:2.2/FRG22D/50454:user/release-keys
    4. Tap the back key and say "Yes" when it asks you to save (it will automatically back up the original file for you)
    5. Tap Mount R/O at the top
    6. Reboot

    You will no longer get the OTA update notifications, because Verizon will believe you already have it.


    This works - I just did it to 2 different phones, and have not been requested to install OTA update any more

    I just let the phone try to install the update, reboot to nandroid and reboot again. It stops the update for about a week. I can wait for v.05 to come out...
