i tried all the stuff i found on google...im on 4.2.6/verizon....
Have you tried.... updating your apps?
if you dont have an answer, dont post.
Have you tried....giving a little more details?
Just from your one line description that's the same response I had. Update your apps.
Have you tried Badge Remover from Cydia?
obviously this is for cracked apps
get metadata remover or just buy your apps.
How is that not an answer?
Updating your apps removes the badge from the Appstore icon.
it took the red circle away, still have a white number...but way better.
It's not nice to assume. It may be, but I've been in a situation where I have seen an app update that I didn't like and wanted to avoid.
He would have just said that instead of his rude responses instead.
my rude responses?
Uh, get a clue. Sometimes people don't want to update because it negatively affects program functionality.
OP, you can entirely remove any reference of an update easily:
SSH/iFile to your Application folder and delete iTunesMetadata.plist.
All references to updating the app in question will be gone (the entire badge and number). It also doesn't effect the phone globally like the badge remover does.
AppFlow is a good program for this as well - it's free on Cydia.
thanks for your help, but once i go into the applications folder under /stash. i dont see that file...am i missing something?
The iTunes applications you're looking for are actually stored under /var/mobile/Applications
In that folder, you will see a bunch of weird folder names that give no clue as to what the application really is. Looking inside of the folder will reveal what application it really is. Anyways, find the folder you want and remove the plist file. Load up the App Store and the update will be removed!
They meant this :
Which came off somewhat rude to me.
I'd say it was warranted, considering the snarky, unhelpful post to which he was responding.
You know there's a Cydia app called "AppLinks" that will create symbolic links to those folders with the correct app name.
Thank you! I have been wondering about this myself. There have been updates that i didnt want to do becuase the app was acting fine to me.
