    I dont want my app store to automatically show that I have an app to update (in fact I dont want to update these apps at all sometimes).

    I am on ios 6 and my ipad mini is jailbroken, is there a tweak that will not allow the app store to automatically check for updates to apps?

    Thanks!

    not to hijack this thread :)rolleyes:), but...my app store icon ALWAYS shows 1 update, but there's nothing there (or if there are, say, 2 REAL updates, it shows 3).

    anyway to fix that?

    Mine does that sometimes as well. I am more worried about it showing up when ios is outta date and I just wanna turn it off now.

    If you add 0.0.0.0 su.itunes.apple.com to your host file it should prevent the auto checking. You'd have to remove that entry to manually check updates yourself and I'm not sure if that will cause other things to not work.

    That 1 update is for an app you have with an iOS 7 only update. No idea how to fix that as I have 2 myself.

    Edit: Adding on, I use Springtomize to disable badges on the App Store, Cydia, etc so I can ignore the neverending reminders I have "updates"

    As said above, that "invisible" update is iOS 7 only compatible. I think it doesn't show up because of the new feature to install the latest compatible version

    Flex does this as well and uses less system resources.
