    Hi everyone. This applies to all devices but I've got a jail broken iPad 3 on iOS 5.1.1. As you know, there are several apps such as iPhoto and iMovie that have updates but require iOS6. I also have an app called Shuttersnitch that has an update available that I don't want (Apple is making them remove functionality - don't get me started). This is causing 2 problems. First, I have update notifications that I can never clear and second, I can no longer update all my apps at once with the Update All button (updating one at a time with the app store exiting each time blows chunks).

    Does anyone know of a jailbreak app that would let me remove specific apps from the update check? I hate having a bunch of update notifications that I can't clear and I hate not being able to use my Update All button because I don't want to update my Shuttersnitch. It would be nice to get more control over app updates.

    But I'm not sure you can use the Update all button with it.

    Personally, I install updates one at a time.
    Takes a few minutes longer but can avoid an infrequent disaster.
    You should consider this also, since if your iPad3 craps out, you must go to iOS6
    You have no safety net.
