Hahah, believe me I really wish you were right but the option you are referring to during the install does not stop BBDM 5.01 searching for device firmware updates the first time you connect per session. I did mention this:

The link posted above contains the option you are referring to - I deselected the option for "BlackBerry Automatic Update" on a clean install of BBDM and it still tried to check for device firmware updates. Many others around the various BB fora have complained of the same issue. Perhaps deselecting that option prevents BBDM from trying to update the BBDM program itself; it doesn't seem to have any effect on device firmware update checking, unfortunately. Maybe it did with an earlier version of BBDM, I don't know.
I've been using my script above for a wee while now and it seems to be pretty solid. Cheers.
