    so the iphone automatically checks for updates for apps on my phone, I usually do the update just to get rid of the red number notification on the side of the app on the menu screen. But I noticed that some of the free trial versions I dl'ed, after I updated them they changed to a new version that I didnt like....Is there a way to ignore the updates and delete from the update section of the app?

    Install MetadataRemovr from cydia. This should take care of that.
    Hope that helps.

    If you want to keep the older version of an app do this:
    1) Download the update in the iPhone not iTunes and don't sync yet.
    2) Try it out and see if you like the update, if not then delete the app from the iPhone.
    3) If you had the older version in iTunes, then sync it to the iPhone and you will have your older version of the app. Done (as long as you don't update it again)

    Nope, that removes the illegally downloaded apps updates notifications from the App Store not the paid/free official ones... The only way for the App Store to not show the updates for the ones you legally own is edit the data of the app (need to be jb) and change the number manually to a later version...
