    I keep getting the OTA update from Verizon. I know I don't have to worry about it updating because of SPRecovery... but it's very annoying having to restart my phone and going through the process every time I get it.

    Is there any way to stop getting the damn update notification?

    Thanks for the help,
    Jeremy

    Here is what I did:

    1) Copied system/build.prop to SD Card via Astro File manager
    2) connected via "turn on USB storage"
    3) opened up build.prop (where you saved it to your SD Card) using notepad in windows
    4) found
    ro.build.fingerprint=verizon/voles/sholes/sholes:2.1-update1/ESE81/29593:user/release-keys (may look like this or not)
    5) change to: ro.build.fingerprint=verizon/voles/sholes/sholes:2.2/FRG22D/50454:user/release-keys
    6) saved it
    7) turned off USB Storage
    8) Open a cmd window (in windows) in your /tools/ dir of your SDK
    9) Type the following
    9.1) adb remount (press enter. Should say "remount succeeded)
    9.2) adb push build.prop /system/ (press enter. Should say success or something like that)
    9.3) adb reboot (this will reboot your phone)

    You must have the android-sdk_r06-windows (from google) loaded on your computer to do step 8 & 9.
    If you have Root Explorer you can edit this file via your phone. I do not so teh above steps is what I did.

    If you have Root Explorer, you can do it right on the phone.
