Be careful! Blocking dl.google.com doesn't seem to effectively prevent the OTA update... The current gtvhacker exploit image is an old build (12072) that should not be flashed at this point if you want to keep root. You can flash an updated image based on build 12840 that has OTA blocking built in--get it here:

Basically, the creator of the new image updated the /system partition (but not the kernel) to 12840 and removed the /chrome/update_engine binary and replaced it with an empty script.
