Default [Q] What do I need to modify in build.prop to keep the latest OTA from pushing?

Yes, I know I could just install a custom ROM. But I'm just looking for the quick fix. I heard the latest OTA breaks root and makes it harder to root or impossible. Just want to get rid of the notifications for now.

Alternatively, does anyone have the build.prop from the OTA that I could just copy over so the phone thinks it's updated?

It requires more than just a build.prop edit.

What is this, a secret society? If I need to do more than modify the build.prop, then what is it? Would you like me to rephrase the question?

You asked what to modify in the build.prop. I answered your question. No need for the smart alec secret society comment. This is a pretty chill group of people that will do anything for anybody. I for one take that kind of stuff personal and would generally not help out, but I'll be nice this time around.

You have to update, modify the boot.img, modify the update apk, or you can delete the Update apk and lose bluetooth.

Ok, so you're saying that if I want to go back to Derap 1.1 all I have to do is delete the updat.apk but I'll lose BT? I don't have to modify boot.img and update.apk just delete update.apk? I'm cool with losing BT, I don't use it.

I really appreciate the work you are doing MT. I just like the stock themed ROM like what was in Decrap a little better than the green.

Keep up the work though I may come back to Revolt yet! You said you were working on a more stock themed ROM is that still going to happen?

I am working on it, the fun part is working around bing. They have not only integrated it into the system but it is forced into lghome also. I may work on it some more tonight. I have got to work on some bug fixes on revolt then I may move over to the new.

MobileUpdateClient.apk is the exact apk. Delete it and no more updates!
