    I am rooted and have removed several apps. I do believe though I have them all backed up... Don't remember. Anyways, if I forget to push later and it downloads and installs, I am assuming I'll have a bricked phone? yes?

    If you're rooted, just delete or rename the VZW_updater.apk file in your /system/app directory, it'll quit asking.

    It won't brick your phone if you're removed system files; it'll just fail.

    if you already have any apps frozen/removed it will never be able to install in the first place
