    I'm trying to get some foreknowledge for when the day comes so I can avoid this. I'm currently using a Bell Motorola Atrix running 2.3.4 gingerbread. I absolutely do not want the latest 2.3.6 on this phone. My question is, when I perform a factory reset, how do I avoid it installing 2.3.6 automatically OTA? Remove the simcard maybe? I'm not sure.

    Please no answers that involve unlocked bootloaders / flashing custom ROMs. I am rooted but I will never be unlocking the bootloader on this phone, nor flashing custom ROMs for my own reasons.

    When the OTA update is found it asks you first if you want to install it. just say no.

    ...And if you are tired of seeing the notification at the top of your screen, just go into settings, system updates and unchecked the "schedule box or whatever it says on your device."

    No it will boot to the OS version it has then it will look and see there is a new version and ask you to install it.

    I have the same phone, but don't see a setting to uncheck the schedule box, under system updates.

    You have to have the notification present in order to do it I would think.
