    After receiving the Froyo OTA update and realizing that it totally broke all of the features I use on my Droid (streaming audio, silent mode, etc.), I have downgraded to Bugless Beast v1.1.

    I am finding that BBv1.1 is continuously downloading the OTA update from Verizon over and over in the background. If I go to Settings | About Phone | System Updates, I see a status bar indicating the download progress for the OTA update. The OS never requests to install the update, but it keeps downloading repeatedly. This is absolutely killing my 3G bandwidth, making web browsing nearly impossible. It is also killing my battery life (about 10 hours on idle).

    How the hell do I stop BB v1.1 from downloading this OTA update that I do not want?

    nobody has an answer? bummer.

    i'll ask this instead... does anybody know of a relatively unmodified Eclair-based ROM that doesn't have similar issues with the Froyo OTA?
