    If you opened this up, you know what this is.
    Trying to rename the .zip to disable OTA and Root Explorer says that it's "read only".
    I am half tempted to just delete the file, but needed to ask first.

    In Root Explorer, did you tap on the "Remount as R/W" at the top? When you're done renaming, you have to tap that button again to remount as R/O.

    Rename it to OTAcerts.zip.BAK

    Yeah, duh, lol. I didn't know about the remount. I just would rather not touch a button on a rooted phone without knowing, even with nandroid, but that in itself makes me feel better.

    An ounce of caution is worth a pound of cure. ;)

    Thank you. Although I have a different phone, I've been seeking this answer. I'll try it out for size.
