    I'm already rooted and 2.2. How do I stop the verizon update. It was my understanding that I shouldnt be seeing this when the update was available.

    The only way to stop the notification is to let it download...it should fail during installation

    I'm just concerned with the update unrooting my phone or messing something up.​

    I would be too, but experience on the forum says the install will fail, although I haven't received the OTA myself to share personal experience

    I'm on UD6.0 and got the update this morning. I too am wondering what to do to get rid of the constant notification.

    Sprecovery and Clockwork Recovery will both block the OTA update.

    I'm running bb 0.4 and got the update notification update two days ago. I accepted the update, the phone rebooted just fine and that's the last I heard of it. Did not lose root, still have the same 2.2 bb rom, phone is running great. Have not had any repeat notifications for the update.

    The developers should have either renamed or deleted the otacerts file. Search otacerts in root explorer, rename it with a .bak filetype, or delete it, and reboot...might work.

    I can confirm that all the tips in this thread so far work. Custom recoveries will fail to install and renaming the otacerts should work as well. On another note...I've done nothing to block the update and I still haven't gotten it...

    I have a leaked 2.2 with flash and custom kernel and received the notification today and was concerned too. After reading let the update restart and try to install and sprecovery stopped it. Phone rebooted and is running fine now with no update prompt.
