    I am rooted running a Frozen Syndicate ROM and the Twilight Zone 1.1.1 kernel (froyo).

    I really don't want the OTA update for Gingerbread, which my phone is now bugging me about. How can I disable and stop this notification? So far I've just been up to select 'later', but not remove it.

    Thx!

    From Fnorder over at XDA...

    [Q] HELP How to STOP update popup? - Page 3 - xda-developers

    Haven't had a chance to verify yet...

    Or this one... [MOD] Freeze Battery-Draining Services | 6/14 - xda-developers

    EDIT EDIT: Here is what I did to kill the notification...

    If you change the system/ build.prop to the proper EI22 information, you would be able to avoid having the phone prompting you to update.

    You will need the correct EI22 info to change...

    ro.build.description=SPH-D700-user 2.3.5 GINGERBREAD EI22 release-keys

    ro.build.fingrtprint=sprint/SPH-D700/SPH-D700/SPH-D700:2.3.5/GINGERBREAD/EI22:user/release-keys

    Thanks icecold -- hmm, the link on the XDA site seems to suggest there's an app (FOTAKill) that might or might not work.

    What did you do exactly? You edited /system/build.prop only? That's pretty slick.

    Yes, that is all I did... I haven't looked at the FOTAKill files yet to see what it exactly does, but I have done the edit build.prop a few times. I tend to stick to what I know works, and like to know exactly what is being changed.

    I would create a backup of the original just in case, but if you are using Root File Explorer it does it automatically...
