Greetings all first official forum post. So I have a rooted phone using the revolutionary method and have frozen bloatware with titanium backup. My problem is that I had originally downloaded the separate radio file from the 2.3.4 update and installed it, but I forgot to delete the file so everytime I boot into hboot it tries to install the radio file again. Then when my phone reboots it has already downloaded the new update over night and it boots for a few seconds and loads then it shuts down to install the update, which fails because of the frozen bloatware. I think if I can somehow get the radio file I downloaded deleted I can get the phone to work, but I'm not sure how to do it since my phone won't stay booted for more than a minute at a time. Any help would be greatly appreciated since my mom also has a I2 and I want to be prepared for if her phone does it too.

Stupid question (I only ask because you didn't specify either way) is the radio update on a SD card? If so couldn't you just remove the memory card and delete the file using your computer?

lol thank you for the reply I actually just realized that before I checked your post. Removed the SD card and was able to factory reset the phone so I can block the update. Thank you for helping me out :)

All I did was change the build.prop to say 2.3.4.... I am attaching the build.prop that is already changed (you will have to rename from build.txt to build.prop) along with the adb commands to put it in the system folder! Also, make sure you move the build.prop into the same folder as your adb.exe! You also must have busybox installed... I used the busybox installer from the market.... I forgot to add, you must have usb debugging on Settings>Application>Development> USB Debugging...

Code:
To use this start cmd.exe in run then cd to the folder where you have adb.exe and type:
adb push ./build.prop /sdcard/ 
adb shell
su
cp /sdcard/build.prop /system/

What is this modified build.prop meant to accomplish? Appreciate the work, but not sure what this has to do with this thread. Also the OP got this resolved a week ago... Wrong thread maybe?

No problem it happens lol. I figured it was for something else.
