    You could try renaming /system/etc/security/otacerts.zip to, say, .bak.

    Hmm, apparently it doesn't stop it from downloading the update. However it definitely won't let the update install. I'm not yet sure which application is responsible for updates.

    It's in the cache inside your phone's internal memory.

    Rename /system/app/BlurUpdater_VZW.apk to BlurUpdater_VZW.apk.bak.
    Rename /system/app/BlurUpdater_VZW.odex to BlurUpdater_VZW.odex.bak.

    That will definitely do it.

    If you postpone it, it will ask again in 1 hour, 2 hours, 4 hours, then 12 hours... and then every bloody 12 hours. :(

    Thanks, that should keep me going until there's an SBF out.

    IMPORTANT Information Regarding .621 System Update - RootzWiki
    suggests in video on the first post to prevent automatic updates do the following:
    - rename BlurUpdater_VZW.apk to BlurUpdater_VZW.bak,
    - remove BlurUpdater_VZW.odex and
    - clean cache after.

    Though instructions are for Droid X, but seems it corresponds with advices on this page.
