How to stop the Verizon OTA Notification
« on: October 17, 2010, 09:58:19 AM »
Credit goes to http://androidforums.com/members/sinfuldragon.html for originally providing this information. I added a step that needs to be completed for it to work properly.

Hopefully, you have Root Explorer (and if you don't, I highly recommend it because it's so worth the couple of bucks). Here are the instructions to prevent to the FRG22D OTA update (which I was getting yesterday myself):

1. In Root Explorer, go to /system/
2. Tap Mount R/W at the top, then long-press on build.prop and scroll down to Open in Text Editor
3. Once the file is open as a text file, scroll down until you see the line that says: "ro.build.fingerprint=verizon/voles/sholes/sholes:2.2/FRG01B/45394:user/release-keys" and change it to read as follows:
ro.build.fingerprint=verizon/voles/sholes/sholes:2.2/FRG22D/50454:user/release-keys
4. Then change line directly above that says description to match.
5. Tap the back key and say "Yes" when it asks you to save (it will automatically back up the original file for you)
6. Tap Mount R/O at the top
7. Reboot
**** As always, please flash responsibly. I am not responsible if you brick, break, screw-up, throw, or otherwise destroy your phone. Make sure you understand the consequences along with the benefits of the modifications you make to your phone. And finally, ALWAYS MAKE A NANDROID BACKUP FIRST. ****
