    Is there a way to get the phone to stop trying to update the OS? I'm running an incredible flashed to work on cricket service & it will undo my flash I think. So I'd like to get it to stop. Any tips/advice would be appreciated.

    You would need to edit the build.prop file in the system folder. Haven't seen anyone report what it needs to be changed to yet though.

    On my rooted handset, I edited the build.prop file(/system/build.prop).

    After a complete back up for safety sake, I changed

    ro.build.fingerprint=verizon_wwe/inc/inc:2.3.4/GRJ22/185897.2:user/release-keys

    to

    ro.build.fingerprint=verizon_wwe/inc/inc:2.3.4/GRJ22/389630.15:user/release-keys

    Then rebooted. It gave me one more notification before I could delete the downloaded update. By the time I navigated to the cache folder, the update file was gone. The phone says the system is up to date, and I haven't seen another nag since.

    Or try to update and hope you don't have enough memory! :)

    Where is the cache folder the update is downloaded to?

    I was led to believe the 18MB .zip file in the /cache folder was the update. Both handsets I did this to did the same thing - file disappeared after reboot.
