That app allows you to just uncheck any of the systems startup files. no risk of freeze deletes or anything. anyways, im just a noob tryin to help out any other noobs.
    On the Vtab1008 you can use the home button (v button) to navigate away from the update screen. Then you can use your tablet as normal with occasional pop-ups asking you to update. Just hit home again.

    Going to get tb to stop the update. Could you share with us all what app you used when you tried freezing and bricked your tablet. Thanks

    I was able to use an app called "LBE Privacy Guard" to deny the update service internet connectivity. While it still runs, it cannot access the internet. (Droidwall doesn't work on the VTAB sadly)
