    You should be able to delete the update from your SD. Then with a bloat freezer or titanium freeze the updater apk in system to stop it from downloading and trying to install it again.

    It should just be on the root of your SD and named "update.zip"

    Yes, when you select your SD from whatever file manager you use there is the first screen with all your folders. Scroll down there and look for an update.zip there, if there is then go ahead and delete it.

    Actually the OTA update.zip will be stored in /cache. Use a root file manager to access /cache and delete it. Then use Tibu or bloat freezer to freeze the updater

    Thanks for catching me! Been a long day today and a while since I actually had to delete it.
