Apparently going a step further with the autonooter guys and installing a custom ROM will prevent the update from being pushed (http://theunlockr.com/2011/02/06/how...he-nook-color/).

Has anyone tried and can confirm this? I'm going to try tonight, I think, if no one else has. I really just don't feel like the stock B&N capabilities are worth losing root right now.
If all you want to do is run the stock rom rooted and prevent autoupdates, easiest way seems to be to change the db parameter to manual.

Code:
# sqlite3 /data/data/com.bn.devicemanager/databases/devicemanager.db
sqlite> update registry set value='manual' where name='com.bn.device.fota.mode';
sqlite> .q
# reboot
