I also saw a reference to /mnt/us/system/release_notes and /etc/releasenotes_url.txt in the PW2 5.7.2 firmware, by dumping `strings usr/bin/otav3`.
As well as threats to abort the update download -- those release notes might be needed to find the availability of updates.

Possibly some more things that can be modified or locked to interfere with the OTA sensing capabilities?

Yes, thanks. Karma coming your way too...

EDIT: Hmm... I tried to give you a nice number pattern, but it is much higher now. Somebody else must have given you a big karma bump just to mess with me (or I messed up myself). Oh well, you have a lot more karma than you did a moment before. Now you can give more too...

Perhaps also use the 'check for update' command, then warn user if something is ready to be sent their way.

We can turn radio off (set airplane mode) automagically with lipc commands if we sense an impending update (perhaps a KUAL extension than launches a cron job or something).

The update blocking becomes more important because of Step 7.

I tell people how to choose any firmware version available for their model.
If they load anything other than 'most recent' I am sure they will want it to stay that way.

Is this still relevant on current firmwares?

The dir hack with update.bin.tmp.. does still work?
