    There's only so long you can hold off on installing an update (I don't recall the exact length of time off the top of my head) before the phone will force the install. The only way I know to avoid it is to shut off the data connection, and I'm sure the phone wouldn't be of much use to you that way

    Per Page 105 of the 800MHz kernel page...

    To disable updates:

    mount -o remount,rw / (press enter twice)

    chmod -x /usr/bin/UpdateDaemon (press enter twice)

    mount -o remount,ro / (press enter twice)

    Then reset your phone


    To re-enable updates:

    mount -o remount,rw / (press enter twice)

    chmod +x /usr/bin/UpdateDaemon (press enter twice)

    mount -o remount,ro / (press enter twice)

    and then reset your phone.

    No, I've never done this to my Pre. The only time I wanted to was after WebOS 1.04 disabled side-loading homebrew apps through the Email app. But I didnt get to it in time lol...

    It is pretty easy to do though. You can probably use the Terminal in WebOS Quick Install to input the commands.

    I have the Verizon Pre Plus & I'm waiting for the 1.4.1.1 patch (still a few weeks away)... I have the 800MHz kernel installed. The 800MHz kernel has to be uninstalled before updating to 1.4.1.1. I don't want to sit around "waiting" for the patch to come sitting on stock 500MHz. So I'm blocking the auto update till I hear that the patch is out for Verizon. Then I'm going unblock, uninstall the 800MHz kernel, update to 1.4.1.1, then reinstall the 800MHz.

    yea I know, but per caj, you're "suppose" to uninstall the kernel before updating to 1.4.1.1, then you can reinstall it.

    of course you have to uninstall it before updating but it does work when you reinstall post update
