Hey all,

So apple released the latest IOS update (5.1.1) which has already been downloaded onto my phone.

Is there anyway to delete this?

Thanks :)

Nope - Because you're supposed to install them.

Well technically you can't...BUT, if you are using a Jailbroken iPhone, you can install either the "No Update" or "Software Update Killer" package from Cydia to hide the badges and also disable the check for updates/download updates function.

Boo that sucks. How big are the downloads - aren't these taking up space on my device?

F*ck I hate Apple sometimes.

@godzilla yeah jailbreaking soon but waiting for the iPad 3 JB and will do all my devices at once.

With all due respect, this is ridiculous.
If you update iOS it will not take any of the space you can use for App Data, photos, videos etc...
The OS part is installed to a fixed place on the NAND that always occupies the same amount of space.
So if an update makes iOS say... 20MB larger in size, it won't affect your personal storage.

Of cause for downloading this update you need free space, are you really going to complain about that?
Because if.... it needs to go somewhere for temporary storage right?

And it does not auto-download, if that's what you mean.
Also, it only works on WLAN. So please no tariff talk here...

Just curious. Why don't you just install the update?

looool

For starters yes that is what i mean, it downloads if you are connected to wireless as you have noted so yes it downloaded while I was connected to wireless. Second of all, regardless of the software being saved elsewhere on my device, that it is still MY device I should control what downloads and what does not. Imagine if all apps started doing that. Your logic is flawed.

Yes, I really am going to complain about any vendor downloading software onto my device without asking me or providing me with a way to opt out.

Thanks for your input though ;) /sarcasm

I might install the update once I double check that I can still jailbreak that firmware

[/quote]So in the case of device firmware (which isn't a ****ing app.)your rather "trust" your own judgement than that of the hardware vendors. Wow, dense much. And this is the exact reason why Android and even WP will eventually fail, they arn't willing to fight the telco's control over a device/os THEY make (OS fragmentation ring a bell, thats the telco's fault not the OS vendor.).

Man what is it with you closed minded people today?

Yes, I would rather trust my own judgement as I know what I have planned for my device. Ever heard of bugs? Ever heard of vulnerabilities. Ever heard of battery drains from certain udpates? Dense much?

Again, just so it sinks in for you.. I would rather no software/firmware be downloaded onto my device until I know it fits within my plan for my device. Not that hard to grasp. People have different ways of doing thing. Get over it.

Geez.

iOS OTA's don't auto download. Don't know where you heard they did, but I assure you they don't. They ONLY download when you start the process, and even then you must be using WiFi.

First the update like other have stated only happens on Wifi and even then you have to go in to the update part and click install or download what ever it says. also the Firmware update i installed and sent to a portion of the Nand flash dedicated only for FW updates . and what is it you cant do that you need to JB your device i am just curious

Screw it! You've inspired me to reinstall IE5.5 on a Windows 98 Virtual Machine and **** updates! IE6 is a huge memory drain /s

In all seriousness. iOS Updates are done in a similar manor as OS X Updates.

5.x.x = Major Build
x.1.x = Minor Build
x.x.1 = Bugfix Build

Bugfix builds almost never contain new Firmware and only improve upon the latest Minor Build. So updating from 6.1.0 to 6.1.1 will NEVER cause you to have issues like the ones you mentioned.

mmm nup.. don't believe that bcos the latest iOS update has supposedly (based on what I have seen on some twitter posts) to have improved battery life. So that theory is flawed - which I guess is why you said "almost never". If it can improve - it can also have a negative impact.

Anyway i'm over this thread - so many ppl getting upset bcos I want full control over my phone. Like it's some crazy request I'm asking for. I wasn't worried about the size of the download limit at all. It was just the principal of the matter.

I'm out. Carry on amongst yourselves.
