    I deleted the blurupdater.apk and it is still trying to update. Is there another file or way to prevent the message/update?

    I did. It keeps prompting me to update again. I don't want it to even download.

    Wally if you have Titanium Backup go into it and look for the file "updater". If it's there freeze it.

    Are you sure you deleted the Blurupdater_VZW.apk file? Normally you would just rename it to .bak and it stops the update from trying to download and install. Something may have gone a$$ over elbow on you and deleting it wasn't such a good idea. You may have to put it back in and rename it.

    EDIT: Also, did you restart your phone after deleting it?

    There was not a file called Blurupdater_VZW.APK, only Blurupdater.apk. I renamed to blurupdater.bak and rebooted. This was in the system/app folder.

    That's the file. Mine shows up as Blurupdater_VZW.apk. Did you use root explorer to rename it?

    all these suggestions assume he's rooted. Wally are you rooted?

    Yep.

    I think it maybe gone for now. I had two blurupdater.apk files in my system/app folder, deleted both, manually deleted all temp and cache files and it seems to be gone and not attempting to download. Thanks for all the help guys.
