    I have changed my rom over to Aloysius v6, great rom..but I read somewhere at the bottom of the post that I downloaded from on XDA that OTA needed to be disabled..

    Does anyone know where to do this at? I cannot wrap my brain around where to get to for this..Thanks in advance:)

    First I would try going to setting/about phone/system updates on your phone and see if it force closes....if it does ota has already been disabled. If it lets you check for updates then you would run those commands from a command prompt on your pc in the android_sdk tools directory...make sure your phone is plugged in and on debugging mode.

    Ya, on this version, he didnt disable it again. Few ways to do it, use root explorer (totally worth the money if you dont know cmd very well) or do it in cmd. Open a cmd prompt, go to the /tools/ directory (cd c:\androidsdk\tools replace if this isnt the EXACT location of your sdk folder) and then type in the cmds you listed above.

    EDIT: You forgot one command in your list, do adb shell, then the rest of the cmds you listed above.

    nope, that is all you gotta do to make sure you dont get the ota update. just remember this for every rom you flash to. most rem to do this but lately seems like they have not.
