    I'm far from an expert but from what I understand if the version of android you're running is higher than the update it will not show up. I'm thinking BB5 is Lower so you will continue to get updates. Something in the build.prop file tells the update not to run so you never get the notice.
    Maybe you should run a higher version of android. I'm running CM7 and its sweet. If you want to keep BB5 I don't know.

    Just a quick idea. If you flash rz recovery v 2.0.3, there is an option in extras to disable OTA updates in rom. Give that a try and I bet you will much prefer rz recovery over clockwork or spr.

    Check out Pete's forum. There is a patch you can download to stop the ota notices. I used it when I was on BB.

    I just started running RZR today and its pretty good. Been on ROM manager since rooting.

    Are you ignoring the update notification or do you try to install it?

    Back in the day when vzw was pushing this one Froyo update all I did was install it and it went away. If you're running a custom recovery it won't install it.
