    Found these instructions in another thread:

    From the Linux command line enter:

    cd /usr/bin
    mount -o remount,rw /
    chmod -x /usr/bin/UpdateDaemon
    killall UpdateDaemon

    Hit enter twice between each line to get me back to a root prompt.

    If you disabled your update you might want to re-enable it at some point.

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

    Then restart your phone and automatic updating should be back.

    if you can get your hands on an old copy of the doctor, I'm sure there out there. I may have one I'll look, but right now I'm to lazy to go out to my truck and get my laptop.

    This is what I'm thinking...... Extract the updatedemon file by copying it to my comp. Run the code from above then copy the changed file to the comp. Compair the 2 then create the patch.

    I may have something that may work. If we have a phone on 1.2.1 I may be able to patch the updatedeamon file to only look for an update every 9,999,999,999 mins insted of every 10 mins. You would have off turn off wifi to postpone the first update attempt. then it wouldnt attempt to update again for a long time.... like over a year!

    I have a copy of the doctor from 9/30/09 This should be before the 1.3.1 update. Email me at mracer29@yahoo.com ill send it to you. Be aware this wil erace all data includng your pictures, contacts, settings. The sprint back up cloud has been lees then perfect at restoring everyones data. I would suggest to back up any info on the pres usb drive first.

    Its not letting me create a patch file but, Im attaching 2 files Try to send the first one to /usr/bin/ . Make sure your phone is at 1.2.1. Ignore the the update, that should normally tell the pre to try again in 10 mins. Now it wont try again for 9,999,999,999 mins.

    If it dont work or your phone acts buggy send the original file to the /usr/bin/ its the second one im attaching. FYI. even if your phone is stuck on the boot screen you can still send the fie with webos QI. I sent the file to the emulator and it started fine.

    EDIT: I had to put the files in a zip. So you will have to unzip the files then the changed file is in there and there is a file called original that contains the original.

    Lol, this will definitly not work... the code just tells the palm that the update daemon is not an executable file... this is not stored in the file itself but in the file system, so you would get two equal files that way...

    Your second idea might work in theory...
