Well, If you are rooted and have Titanium Backup Pro installed you can freeze MotorolaOTA and Updater 1.0. Freezing those will block it for sure.

what are the actual apk names of those two apps? (and where are they, system/app folder or somewhere else)



Edit: found the OTA apk in priv-app folder - 3c_ota.apk (and .odex)
