    Basically what the title says. I'm running BB v 0.4, but today got a notice saying that an update is ready for download / install. There is no "ignore forever" button and I'm getting tired of hitting "Install later"

    Solution?

    I'm hesitant to use that mainly because of the problems associated with it. People have lost root after installing that patch. I've heard that Clockwork blocks the install but I'd rather not find out on my own.

    It seemed like Pete modified the original OTA blocker. I'm running BB .4 but got the OTA notification this morning. I installed it through Clockwork, rebooted, and it's fine. CPU went from 500 mhz back to 800 mhz (I'm using his stock kernel) and the update icon showed up after rebooting but then went away on it's own. I'd say his patch fixed it and didn't break anything on mine, just make sure you use the most current file linked on his site which is stopota1.zip.

    Just accept it, and then clockwork recovery will block it. It won't bother you again.

    Went for it and hit accept. Nothing happened, notification is gone. Thank you.

    According to other similar posts, you will likely get the update again in a few days and have to repeat the process again and again, until you either a) flash a custom ROM from a newer build, or b) install the patch that Pete offers.

    For the record, I installed the patch yesterday after receiving the OTA, flashed the patch and then accepted the update. I had to re-install Swype, but other than that I still have root and I'm still overclocked at 1.1 GHz on a very nice, themed Bugless Evolution.
