    Default HELP! Cannot stop a download

    So my friends decided to be douchebags and mess around on my droid2. when i got it back i noticed there were a bunch of things downloading from the internet in the little top bar that shows notifications and stuff. i can't seem to get it to stop downloading! i've tried force stopping it altogether and that worked for a little bit but now it's downloading again. somebody help!

    The above solutions do not always work. Sometimes, you have to just wait and let the download time out.

    This thread is a year and a half old. First resurrection was 7 months after the original thread was posted. Now it's resurrected again today one year and one month after the last post. Congrats, nice work guys.

    So, how long before the download will time out?
    At the moment I can't even check my email or do anything that requires the internet

    I was able to stop the freezing by going to Settings/Applications/Manage Applications/All/Download Manager/ Clear data . After removing the battery and all that of course.
    But I still can't attempt to download any update 'cause it freezes again

    I hope someone can solve this one soon.

    What happens if I clear all the data? That doesn't sound good at all!

    I'm in the same boat. I saw a lot of basic apps like things that seem to be intrinsic to running the phone. Any comments appreciated!

    need to be rooted to stop updates
    Rename /system/app/BlurUpdater_VZW.apk to BlurUpdater_VZW.apk.bak.
    Rename /system/app/BlurUpdater_VZW.odex to
    BlurUpdater_VZW.odex.bak.

    rename if you have these too.
    Rename /system/app/FOTA.apk to FOTA.apk.bak
    Rename /system/app/ FOTA.odex to FOTA.odex.bak
    reboot, wipe cache

    Update will likely start downloading again, after next reboot.
