If you are on custom rom, you shouldn't be getting OTA.

Try renaming etc/security/otacerts.zip to otacerts.bak

Thank you guys. Renaming that file at first did not work but after while those annoying updates have stopped so i think it's working.
What's weird is that even after reboot they still were popping up but only after some time they stopped. Odd. Thank you guys.

Hmm, I've experienced this on Stock 2.3.6 ROM, the download still showing but stopped, It's annoying but, I'd try factory reset & after it completed I'm turning on the phone without sim card (to ensure there is no internet connection) & renaming the "otacerts" file. So download will not be showing & not started

I tried and removed ICS and JB. Went back to GB, it's faster less bloated and does the job for me. GB kept downloading ICS automatically and giving me nag messages to install it.

I found the following thread, which fixed the problem.

The trick is to install FOTAKill immediately after you install another rom, before the phone connects to the network.

To install it, I used the "adb push" method from cwm recovery.
