    So I rooted my droid about 2 months ago. I have Bugless Beast V0.4 and I used SPRecovery. No joke, but as soon as I rooted, I got the official Froyo update from VZW:eek:. I clicked on install and it took me to recovery mode ( i think that's what it's called) and I just clicked on "reboot now" and my phone stayed rooted. Now I'm getting the Froyo update message about once a week (since then) and each time I just "reboot" the phone. Well today I got a text from VZW saying that my droid was sent the Android 2.2 update and to click for more info. What do I do and/or how do I stop the updates from coming? I love the way my droid is right now and do not want to change it. Thanks!:)

    I got the same text yesterday. But I am running UD8. I think the text was more of a way of getting people to click the link to learn the new features.

    Pete has actually posted something on how to stop the notifications on his site. Peter Alfonso

    I waiting on BB V5!

    UD8 is a really good ROM. I had problems the first time I tried it. Got stuck in a boot loop. Second time I bypassed account login screen and rebooted before setting it all up and it has been great. Love the options and the theme.

    UD8 is running fine on my D1 as well, I guess some phones are just suited for different ROMs.

    Try this (credit to girlluvsdroid and sinfuldragon) it worked for me:

    Hopefully, you have Root Explorer (and if you don't, I highly recommend it because it's so worth the couple of bucks). Here are the instructions to prevent to the FRG22D OTA update (which I was getting yesterday myself):

    1. In Root Explorer, go to /system/
    2. Tap Mount R/W at the top, then long-press on build.prop and scroll down to Open in Text Editor
    3. Once the file is open as a text file, scroll down until you see the line that says: "ro.build.fingerprint=verizon/voles/sholes/sholes:2.2/FRG01B/45394:user/release-keys" and change it to read as follows:
    ro.build.fingerprint=verizon/voles/sholes/sholes:2.2/FRG22D/50454:user/release-keys
    4. Tap the back key and say "Yes" when it asks you to save (it will automatically back up the original file for you)
    5. Tap Mount R/O at the top
    6. Reboot

    You will no longer get the OTA update notifications, because Verizon will believe you already have it.

    That didn't work for me until I changed the line above it that says "description" to match, now there's no more update. Thanks!
