PW1: How to disable OTA updates without jailbreak?

5.4.4 update of PW1 is going to kill extra fonts on my PW1 (not jailbroken) and I wouldn't like this to happen.
I vaguely remember post (was it by ixtab?) with advice how to prevent OTA updates just by creating a file with certain name...but cannot find it now.
Please advise if this option is viable for PW1.

Your presumption being that the update download continuation code can not recover from that change (since to remove a directory under *nix is a different command than to remove a file).
