    I have a rooted moto Droid and I have BB 0.4 and it keeps asking me to update to froyo 2.2 from Verizon. I want to keep my phone Rooted and don't want to upgrade. How can I stop my phone from asking me to update all the time. it's been 3 times this morning already.
    Thanks

    Interesting. Did you use SPR or Rom Manager to install BB? If you used SPR when you installed BB did you do both of the install's? I do not recall which of the two handles the block but it is my understanding one does the block.

    Not sure how RM handles. If you used SPR and did not do both install you can reinstall

    clockwork and sprecovery will cause the update to fail its checks, so go ahead and allow the update.

    If you have not already accepted it accept it. Recovery will cause the install to fail.

    If you have allowed the update and it keeps popping up after the failed install follow mikes advice above.

    Pete has a .zip file that you can flash and it will get rid of the OTA update. i have BB v.04 with Rom manager and used this method and i havn't gotten the OTA thing since.

    I'm running a rooted droid with BB0.4. I ran the OTA this morning and SPRecovery aborted it. Rebooted phone and nothing was affected.

    I wanted to bump this because I somewhat have the same problem.

    I am on BB V1.0 ROM, and I actually dont get the notification to update to FROYO 2.2. Instead, it automatically downloads a couple of times a day.

    I found this out when I noticed yesterday that my battery drained faster than normal. I perused my phone and I found on "settings>about phone>system updates" that FROYO 2.2 was downloading. I had no way to stop it, nor did I hit any button to allow for it to download in the first place.

    Today, I let it complete its download, and I restarted it, nothing happened, but after going back to systems update, the FROYO update is still there, waiting to be downloaded...and it will probably auto download again, as it did a few times already.

    Anyone know how I can fix this? I am guessing I should just update to the newest ROM. Will that work?

    Thanks in Advance.
