    Big problem. I keep getting the OTA downloading in the background. I had otacerts.zip.bak in /system/etc/security, renamed it to otacerts.zip and rebooted...still kept downloading. Deleted it and rebooted..keeps downloading.
    It's trying to download a 77MB file, and once it's done it says system is up to date, no pop-up or nothing. Then a few minutes later it'll download it again. It never asks me to install or anything. No idea what to do.
    All I did was change to a p3 2.2 kernel...I guess that could be causing it???

    Edit: it wasn't just the p3 kernel. I flashed back to Chevy's 1ghz lv kernel and it's still constantly downloading in the background and never gives the option to install it.

    I am running the same rom as you but I am not having that problem. I don't know what to tell you. Sorry.

    I am even running the same kernal as you and it still isn't doing it.

    It's all good. This sweet guy figured it out. It's the build.prop file in /system
    I thought it was that otacerts.zip file in /system/etc/security That's what I was messing with all day long.

    I have the same file on my phone and I just did a factory reset 3 days ago and complete wipe of the system. But I'm not getting any download and have never accepted anything but the 2.1 update1 OTA when it came out.
