    I was wondering, is there any way to modify the settings app so that the software update part be totally gone like iOS 4?

    iTunes gives you the option go updating; just say no

    What are you wanting to accomplish?

    If you're jailbroken, install "noOTA badge" to disable the update notification.

    If you're not jailbroken, then just update.

    Just stay clear of the update feature in your iPhone settings.

    I am obviously jailbroken. I know about noOta but why install a cydia tweak to do something THIS simple?

    There is something in Cydia that will hide it. I think it's called updatehider. If you do try to install an OTA update on a jailbroken device, it'll fail and reboot back to your old firmware version without changing anything.

    Update hide does not hide the software update. When I installed it it did not find the software update as an app update, in turn I wasn't about to hide the software update with it.

    I think the best someone can do is remove the badge so you don't see the red number 24 hours a day anymore.
