    does anyone have an idea how to delete ios7 update from non jailbroken iphone 4s without installing it? That crapware downloaded automatically and took more that gig of precious space.

    Not sure where the update would be stored on your phone, hopefully someone can direct you where to go via SSH.

    They said the phone was not jailbroken. Personally I would just install it because if this is crap ware I will take all I can get.

    You could try restoring your phone to the last back up?

    wow, thats a bold move from apple side - upgrade or loose one gigabyte of disk space. sounds like a robbery to me. I just do not understand why they do not force people to uplodad 10 gigs of tim cook photos form his last vacation? in that case I am sure everybody would update to ios7 :)

    Just start digging around with iFile. In sure someone in the Jailbreak forum will know where it's at.
