    What is the best Installer App to get the $20 apps. By this I mean it will get rid of the iTunes message as well. Like the one that asks if you want to buy them.

    Yeah, I'm getting real sick of that stupid message when I open iTunes. Not sure if there's a fix for this yet. Personally, I'm having a lot of trouble with the Mail.app. Worked flawlessly for me under 1.1.1 and 1.1.2, so I don't get what the deal is.

    So did I, but isn't that sad. I mean, Apple has to know this is happening. I actually think that what they are doing with that continue nagging screen is illegal.

    Listed from Apple Forums

    The ad is basically no different than unwanted ad-ware or malware, and doesn't give you a valid, working option to disable or remove the unwanted ad. Last I checked ad-ware falls under malicious software categories, and is probably illegal in many places.

    The ad disables automatic syncing of your iPod Touch, which is ultimately disabling proper functionality of your device, which is a result of Apple violating its contract with its customers. That, technically, can be grounds for a full refund, if they cannot repair the damage. It also sounds like the definition of a virus, since the update occurs as soon as you install an update to iTunes and/or the iPod Touch.

    I used ijailbreak mobile to upgrade natively from 1.1.1 to 1.1.3 using this repository:

    ijailbreak.com/repo.plist

    It worked fine, and then after I ran the update, it had another program in that repo to install the iphone apps and fancy icon moving dash...

    Whenever I say No, Thank You to the Software Update iTunes gives me this error message. Does everyone else get this as well? See attached.

    Thank god, I thought I was the only one who couldn't get rid of that damn ad.

    It's ridiculous, and annoying. Someone with some time and money should suit.... haha.
