    get Liquid's FY 1.6

    Get the update blocker from Peter Alfonso and apply it.

    Here's how I did it when I got the same notification a couple of days ago. Hopefully, you have Root Explorer (and if you don't, I highly recommend it because it's so worth the couple of bucks).

    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.
     
    The Floyd and Scottmc like this.

    You skipped step 1. Change to the /system folder first. default.prop is the root folder.
