How do u stop webos (2.3.3 hp pre 3) from checking to see if there is an os update.? Don't want the update (2.4.4) installed because it mess up wifi signal . tried the wifi patch which didn't help. So i installed webos 2.3.3 a second time (through webdoctor) and the wifi worked flawlessly.(which apparently this happens to certain pre 3 phones) Well when i looked at my phone this morning somehow webos 2.4.4 was installed automatically. and of course wifi goes back to being horrible .. So I just installed webos 2.3.3 for the 3 time (webdoctor) and want to make sure 2.4.4 doesn't install again. IS THERE ANY WAY TO MAKE SURE IT NEVER CHECKS FOR UPDATE AGAIN? i looked around this forum and others for the last 3 weeks and had'n come by a solution for this.

thanks pbo

See [Guide] How To Disable Ota "automatic Updates" From Hp. - HP Touchpad - RootzWiki

I believe this works for phones too

Have you tried this below? Its from an old thread originally cant remember who to give credit but its how I keep my pre2 from updating to 2.2.4

1. run Internalz Pro in master mode (flip the switch at the bottom of Internalz Pro's Preferences)

2. navigate to (root)/usr/bin

3. scroll down to and get info on "UpdateDaemon"

4. change the linux permissions of UpdateDaemon to -x -x -x from their default of +x +x -x

5. press "ok" and then restart

ya it worked . thanks for your help laingman and Herrie.



redrum0036 u should be fine. this problem seems to be associated with this specific pre 3 phone that is from att (north america). this phone comes with webOS 2.2.3 as default. when u update to 2.2.4 on this phone the wifi basically becomes unusable unless u turn it of and on every 10 min or so. so if your wifi is fine after the 2.2.4 update .
your good .

If you doctor your phone don't forget to do the process again
