    Since I really...really don't want to remove the 800 mhz patch...yet. I have disabled automatic updates. For those of you who don't feel like searching:

    From the Linux command line enter:

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

    So how hard would it be to develop a simple app that allows us to turn this on and off with a flick. Or it could be patched into the menu of the stock updates application.

    It just won't automatically update unless you re-enable it. It's worked for me in the past. I just wish there was a way to do it without needing QI or Terminus. I wouldn't think this would be really hard to do, but what do I know. From the looks of this thread, it doesn't even seam like anybody would be interested in this anyway.

    I'm on my pre now and can't really paste it here, but an advanced search will find it easy enough...anyway I installed the update over the 800 patch and have had no problems

    Same, except you use a +x...

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

    yeah so anyway...how hard would this patch be to pull off?

    This method would have to be wrapped up into a script, so it would only be saving a few lines at the commandline, since your going to have to go there anyway.

    So what happens after line three you get:

    chmod: UpdateDaemon: No such file or directory
