    My phone's telling me that the OTA update for froyo is available for me to download now; running BB, I know I don't want to do this.

    Is there a way to make the notification stop popping up on my screen? I think I remember once upon a time seeing a way how to but can't remember.

    Thanks for you help dancedroid

    What version of Bugless are you on? It should be blocked from receiving the update notification due to loosing root. If I were you, I would do a back-up and re-flash the BB .4. I believe .5 will be out shortly and I think it will be FRG01B.

    But it is strange for you to receive the OTA notification.
    Until they root 2.2, I would hold off. I learned my lesson with th Ipad. Updated to 3.2.1 and now I cant jailbreak it... yet.

    Good luck

    I'm running the latest v0.4.

    The notification's still up in the status bar and it pops up on screen from time to time. I just hoped that there would be a way to simply turn it off since I don't have time to re-flash and backup right now. Thanks for your reply though, I appreciate it.

    SPRecovery will supposedly block it from installing after it downloads.
    But then again I heard if you run a custom ROM you won't get prompted for the OTA.
    Can anyone confirm SPRecovery will block it?

    Check it out Farmer, flash the alt recovery through Rom Manager and then flash back to Clockwork and see it you still receive the notification.


    reboot as well

    When I used SPRecovery and received the 2.1 update, I selected to update an then SPRecovery blocked it for me, an then I didn't receive anymore information about it. I'm assuming its the same for 2.2.

    Flashed alt recovery, rebooted, froyo update notification still in the status bar;
    Flashed clockwork, rebooted, notification still is there.

    Any other ideas out there?

    I was rooted and running bb when 2.1 ota was released and alot of us had issues with battery because they update was downloading then redownloading but we would not recieve the notification but if you went to system updates it was there. I installed as weel as my friend clicked update and sprecovery blocked the update. I believe sprecovery will block the update so it should still block with 2.2 update but theres always a possiblity that vzw or mot changed something so if works around what spr blocks but i would think it still blocks the update. Believe me when i clicked update for 2.1 i was scared but it started to install then spr kicked in an aborted the install. If it doesnt you can always sbf your phone back to 2.0.1 or 2.1 then re root and install a rom again. (as long as this update doesn't lock the bootloader lol) I did hear it relfashes the bootloader.
    If your that worried about it I'm sure a bunch of people will try it when it comes to their phone so just clikc later until you know

    Just take your 3.2.1 iPad to http://jaimbreakme.com and let it use the PDF exploit and jailbreak for you.

    Running BB 0.4 with CW Recovery here. I am getting the notification as well. Pete's official site says not to accept the install. Should I let it sit and wait it out, or are there better, safe steps to take?

    That is EXACTLY how it works. Just go ahead and download it and let recovery block the install. That will end the notifications

    I have accepted notification to install. SPRecovery blocks install, however, I still receive notifications to download. Is there a setting anywhere to stop this?

    I got the update notification last night. I clicked to install and it rebooted my phone into clockwork. It errored out and gave me a triangle with an explanation point. I let it sit for a bit but then hit the power button and selected reboot phone. I haven't got the notification since then.

    On Pete's website there is a file you can download to stop the OTA update notifications, although from what I've read it's made a lot of people lose the ability to use Swype, and for a couple of us, lose root access completely (At least the programs say so).

    The fix I found was to install Lithium mod

    Running BB 0.4, backed up, selected reboot and download. It rebooted and downloaded 2.2, but the update was blocked for me. I got the triangle, SPRecovery came up, rebooted, now fine.
