    The StopOTA on his website is for FRG01B, the update you are getting OTA is FRG22D, currently he hasn't made anything to stop the newest OTA. Someone else made one, but I haven't applied it yet and just let recovery block it every day or two. I've just been waiting for .5 to come out to stop them. But if they bother you that much just apply the one that Peter didn't make, or use recovery to block it whenever it pops up. There aren't too many options currently.

    To stop the OTA's below 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.

    you can also see post: OTA Update Blocking
