Question [Q] Updates for Bootloader unlocked phones.

Now I was under impression that phones where bootloader is unlocked and are rooted AND have different kernel (in my case Phantom kernel) do not receive OTA updates nor do they receive updates on Sony PC Companion.
To my surprise I have that annoying icon for OTA for latest firmware and update shows also on PC Companion as well ! Anomaly or did Sony eased up on their restrictions ?
Anybody else experienced this ?

BTW if there are more that are annoyed by that update icon solution is to go to settings->apps->all apps pick update center and clear it's cache.

Ota is showing because you have phantom kernel.I have ota icon too on 1.14 fw.Your solution doesnt work for me, when you clear the app and run next time update center or restart the phone ota will show again.

Ok thanks for clarification.
Regarding OTA icon sure and confirmed way of getting rid of it is using titanium and freezing update centre.

I know, have done that few days back, but freezing apps on titanium works only when you paid for the full version
