Disable OTA Updates Android

Ok Verizon was just pissing me off by pushing the OTA updates to my phone.  After dealing with "Install later" for 3 weeks, I finally managed to disable OTA updates using a trick I found on a forum.

First, make sure you have adb installed & that it can pick up your device.  Next, adb shell into your device & type the following commands:

mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system
cd /system/etc/security
mount -o ro,remount -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system
