    hi all,

    i have a rooted mytouch 3g. i do not want any updates, nor notification. i just renamed my otccerts.zip to .bak. i still had a system update request when i rebooted. i am also reading that the rename causes a battery drain?

    being as android is linux based, i know it is controllable! but where should i look?

    thanks,

    david
