How to disable OTA, or make to start manually my OTA update.
Everytime i open my phone there is a message that new version is available.
I try to put latest update on card in rom folder,but it is the same problem.
I think OTA needs little bit improvement with options like manual update, turn on/off update and similar....

You can just delete the application with Root Explorer for example. The application is in /system/app folder and called Updater.apk
If you are familiar with adb, it's even simplier
adb remount
adb shell rm -f /system/app/Updater.apk

That's all

It's a bit drastic to remove the app altogether!! You might want to use it in the future.. What I did was click on the notification that says you have an update available, you'll see a button that says apply later. That removes the notification.. I agree though, it should be smart enough to recognise that the latest version is already installed..
