    Is there any way to stop or block the tablet from checking for updates. i keep getting the popup to update to the new version but i dont want to lose the root so is there anyway to stop this?

    Install Titanium Backup Pro.
    Freeze Visio Update service.
    Enjoy.

    Do not delete freeze deleting will brick the tab.

    Sorry if this is a stupid question. I don't see the "Freeze" option in Titanium Backup Pro. I want to make sure I get it right. I already killed one VTAB and don't want to make it two.

    Could someone post the basic instuctions?

    Thanks...Brad

    Edit: I found it. For anyone else wondering, Select "Backup/Restore" tab long press the app that you want to freeze (such as Vizio Update Service) and choose "Freeze".

    I restarted after freezing the update service...no problems and no more nagging.

    Warning:
    Do NOT use other apps to freeze Vizio Update Service.
    Only Titanium Backup Pro.

    There were reports from people bricking their vtabs after trying to freeze Vizio Update service w/other apps.

    Switch to no reply, they will email when there is an update.

    Yes, I was one of the reports on Bricking after freezing the Update Service. I had not used Titanium Backup to freeze last time but I learned my lesson. All is good this time using TB.

    I just baught this today "my first tab", it came with build 1.9.56. first thing it wants to do when hooking up to the internet is update. gives you no choice but to say yes or push the power button, hence no market to get apps. anyways I just copied the system tuner app from my evo and side loaded that. 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.

    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)
