    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?

    update: made an edit to the build.prop file.

    defined 2.3.5 gingerbread in place of fr...

    in ro.build.description=, and in ro.build.fingerprint=

    so far so good.
