    Don't want to update.. i.e. i have tons of removed bloatware and dont want to deal with it.

    How do i block the notification of the update? It's annoying the crap out of me.

    The only way I know to stop the notification would be to update, or go to a ROM that disables the update manager...

    I'm not 100% sure about this, but you might be able to freeze the update manager on the phone, but I don't know how dangerous that is.

    Yeah most custom ROMs disable this but if you don't want to do that, all I've ever heard of is looking through the /system/app folder and renaming or freezing anything like update/updater/upgrade.apk, but I don't know about specifically on the Bionic.

    The method to do that on the OG Droid was to edit the build.prop file and fool the updater into thinking the update was already applied thus stopping notifications. I'm not sure if that will work on the bionic or exactly what needs to be changed in the Bionic version of the file. Maybe some of the real gurus around here know...

    Here are the release-keys id for .902. You may be able to edit your build.prop file with these values so that it appears your phone already has .902:


    ro.build.description=cdma_targa-user 2.3.4 5.5.1_84_DBN-71 120106 release-keys
    ro.build.fingerprint=verizon/targa_vzw/cdma_targa:2.3.4/5.5.1_84_DBN-71/120106:user/release-keys

    Interesting thought. Let me try this and report back.

    Additional note: If you use Root Explorer, it will rename the original build.prop to build.prop.bak so you can easily go back if necessary. You might even want to rename the .bak file to build.prop.original in case you edit the file more than once so you will have the original.

    This method always worked for the original Droid so when using custom roms you could avoid OTA's.
