Ok first in order to se /system on es file explorer i believe you need to go into the apps preferences and select root mode.

If your getting su out of date go ahead and update it.

If you delete the files and they come back when you reboot either your not s-off or your not mounting the system r/w first. Also after you delete the file(s) you need to clear thr cache partition from recovery or it will still prompt you to update.

The first option (build.prop edit) does not kill the the battery.
Removing or renamimg otacerts.zip may kill the battery. Which did you use?

I just noticed that the build.prop edit in the op has an error, it should be changed to:
Code:
ro.build.fingerprint=verizon_wwe/inc/inc:2.3.4/GRJ22/185897.2:user/release-keys

My original file was written "... _wwe/inc/inc/inc: ..."

Shouldn't there be another /inc/ in there or no?

Also, just out of curiosity, what does changing the number from 222219 to 185897.2 do?

No just 2 /inc's

Changing it will make verozion think you already have the latest ota.

When i was on MIUI, the OTA would download a few times a day. This would kill my battery life. So I edit the build.prop file as mentioned. It seemed to work for a few days but it started up again. So I just turned on my firewall and stopped Download Manager from retrieving data. Worked like a charm...

It may have poped up again after the edit because the ota files were still in the cache. Just edit the build.prop as stated above, and then go to recovery and wipe cache.
