Occasionally and frequently at inconvenient times (in the middle of important Angry Birds games) I get a screen that says:

Device management
Software update
New software update for
phone installed.
Phone is ready for use


I click OK and it goes away, but it always comes back. Is my phone really being updated this often. I doubt it. It always reports the same version, Eclair. Even if it was, I don't want to be notified like that.

How can I stop this?

Are you rooted, or have you played around with your phone settings at all? – JasCav Dec 3 '10 at 20:44
No. Not rooted. I don't think I've made any unusual settings changes. – Adam Dec 3 '10 at 20:55

That's very odd. Normally there should be no auto-update of the device software, and other updates will require a reboot. Try the following:

  1. Hold both volume buttons and the power button
  2. Wait until the phone reboots, keep holding
  3. Release the power button about 1 second after the white text with your phone model appears onscreen, keeping holding the volume buttons
  4. Recovery mode should appear
  5. Select "Reinstall packages" or similar

I don't see Install Updates. I see Reinstall Packages (also Reboot System Now and Delete All User Data and Delete Cache Data) is that what you mean? At the bottom in yellow it says: update media, please wait... update media, finished # MANUAL MODE # --Appling Muli-CSC... Installing Muti-CSC Thanks!! – Adam Feb 25 '11 at 20:09
Yes, Reinstall Packages is what I meant. – Matthew Read Feb 25 '11 at 21:31
Any luck with this? – Matthew Read Apr 1 '11 at 15:35
Not really. Recently I tried to update my phone to FroYo and failed, so I got a new replacement phone. I lost all my apps and with it the problem. If it comes back I'll try your suggestions again. Thanks for your help. – Adam Apr 1 '11 at 16:00
