    Well, right after posting I got hit again. And for some reason I cannot get Terminal to work. I enter what's posted above, but am I supposed to hit enter after entering each line? Do I use the space key to start a new line for each line written? Do I just swipe the card away after entering everything? Do I start a new line for the last killall line? I took it out of developer mode, and when it restarted I was told there was an update waiting. I cannot kill the thing.

    Never mind. Got it after a number of false starts. Thankfully. Now if we could figure out WTH is going on? Certainly appears to be due in some cases to My Tether.

    So, I installed patches, tether, terminals, ssh, in 3 pres. One has the continue update request issue, the other two seems okay so far. The only diff is, on the first one, I always added the patchs right after the update. The other two were patched almost a week after the update. It's been about 2+ weeks for the last 2 pres. I have to update mine, the first pre, twice already since then. Is it possible that we just need to give the update program to recheck status first after some time (24 hr? 48 hr?) before we should add the patches? Just a thought... It's been 2 days since my last update. Thinking about adding the patches now. We'll see if this helps. Of course, I won't mind if 1.3.1 come before that.

    Anybody wait after update before installing patches that still have the continuing update issue? How long did you wait before installing the patches?

    UPDATE: Okay, this theory doesn't hold. I installed the patches, and got the next update request the next morning. Still kinda interesting that the other 2 pres still doesn't get any update request till now. I guess, I'll just have to disable the updater for now...

    Just saying you have MyTether installed isn't enough information. Is it the free or paid version of MyTether, and if the free version, are you using the installer from MyTether, or the modified installer Jason made?

    I used the Terminal application to type these commands right from my Pre. You can download Terminal (and the Terminal service, which now downloads automatically before Terminal) through Preware: http://forums.precentral.net/webos-i...0-preware.html

    Once you have Terminal installed on your pre, put your pre into developer mode: just start typing upupdowndownleftrightleftrightbastart from the main screen. You'll see a toggle for Developer Mode, switch it to on and your pre will restart.

    The next part you must do very carefully. Open the Terminal app and type (*note the spaces between letters and symbols**without the word "Code:"*) from post #111:

    Code:
    cd /usr/bin
    mount -o remount,rw /
    chmod -x UpdateDaemon
    mount -o remount,ro /

    Then reset your phone or just type
    Code:
    killall UpdateDaemon
    --

    To re enable, use:
    Code:
    cd /usr/bin
    mount -o remount,rw /
    chmod +x UpdateDaemon
    mount -o remount,ro /
    and then reset your phone.

    Remember to take your phone out of developer mode afterward, and keep the instructions for re-enabling the UpdateDaemon handy. HTH.
    What would be really nice would be if someone could simply create a patch with a toggle for blocking updates. Anyone done that, or working on it?

    There's nothing to *patch*. Look at the commands. Only
    the file permissions are being changed, not the contents.

    OK....I really don't comprehend the command structure as I haven't worked with it at all in any way. But isn't this similar to some "procedures" like a Luna restart? Could there not be an app (if not a patch) to perform the block?

    Apps, by design, can't write or change permissions of files on the / partition.

    Yes, it could be done as there is a way for WOQI and Preware to run a script, but the respective teams that provide those tools don't include scripts willy-nilly. But its definitely possible.

    However there might be some concern about delivering the ability to disable a core feature that Palm might not appreciate. Palm and the dev community are currently showing each other a lot of mutual respect, and I'm sure everyone would prefer to keep it that way.

    Just make a bash script for it. put it in /usr/bin or in the /opt/bin

    call it updatestatuschanger

    the just type "updatestatuschanger" into the terminal


    pseudocode

    if permission on updatedaemon -x then +x else chmod -x

    something like that. too lazy to write it now.

    Me too....frankly, playing around with commands in terminal makes me nervous.

    Actually, I get kind of a kick out of Terminal. Reminds me of DOS days

    That said, a patch or script or something would be much more user-friendly.

    I couldn't get it to happen how I wanted so here is a two script file. I don't trust anyone so I'm not going to host it on my server. Make these into files with your favorite editor nano vi whatever. run the first one to fix it. Second one to restore it. Really didn't do anything which makes me angry. I don't know how to parse a files permissions =[

    #!/bin/sh
    mount -o remount,rw /
    chmod -x UpdateDaemon
    mount -o remount,ro /
    killall UpdateDaemon
    reboot




    #!/bin/sh
    mount -o remount,rw /
    chmod +x UpdateDaemon
    mount -o remount,ro /
    reboot




    ---------------------------


    Here is what I was working on if anyone can find the errors and fix it go ahead.

    $i=UpdateDaemon;

    do if [ -x $(echo $i) ];
    then echo $i; echo "exec";
    chmod u-x $i;
    else chmod u+x $i;
    fi done
