You want wireformat to be true for a transit machine.  You also want to
add noreader: true.

You shouldn't need to set ovmethod anywhere at all.

Have you restarted innd since changing inn.conf?  Are you sure it's using
the same inn.conf that you're changing?  Are you sure that the
enableoverview: false line that you have is the only occurance of
enableoverview in inn.conf?
