    Anybody know how to remove the software update badge from inside the settings app without restoring and setting up as new? I just jailbroke last night and I really don't want to have to set up as new! I tried a clean install then jailbreaking then restored from backup and that pesky badge is still there!

    You can just delete the update off the phone and that should get rid of the badge I believe.

    Just go to general->Usage->Manage Storage (Going on memory here since I haven't done this in a while)

    If only it were that simple. Needs a tweak to be updated to work with iOS 8 in order to accomplish this. It always was updated in the past with iOS 6 and 7 cause we didn't have the every-version jailbreak we've had for iOS 8.xxx like we've had until now. This not having a jailbreak for the current version is a new thing in recent history ... LOL

    Ok, since I hadn't done that in a long time, I wasn't entirely sure.

    I think if OTA is on and it downloaded it, that's a good suggestion for deleting the actual update file, but it doesn't remove the annoying badge constantly reminding us that we're one version behind everyone else because we'd rather jailbreak. LOL

    Mikoto does it. Available from repo cydia.angelxwind.net/

    Find a list of all its features in attached link

    Any other updated tweaks yet that'll remove the badge? SoftwareUptateKiller prevents from accidentally updating but doesn't remove the badge, even though it says it does in the description.

    I used ccsettings to clear the badge from the icon on the home screen. I still have it in the settings app by General but its not bugging me too much anymore! :) I don't think I'll install the Mikoto tweak just to get rid of that. I like running my phone light with tweaks and I already have springtomize 3 and I think they do a lot of the same things.

    New question:

    Is it normal to see a little higher home and lock screen usage in the battery usage section? Mine isn't crazy high and my battery life is still normal. Maybe some tweaks cause higher usage? Maybe I've been starting at the home screen more since I installed a pretty theme! :)

    CCSettings? You sure you're not thinking of a different tweak? CCSettings is the app that handles Control Center settings, not Home Screen Badges like is the topic of this conversation. Can you clarify. If CCSettings does this, I can't find it and is new to me, so I'd like to figure it out.

    ----------

    Well yes, almost any jailbreak tweak is going to increase battery usage, especially UI tweaks like a home screen and lock screen mod. Many of the lock screen mods are running data to feed them, or at least have background communication going on that isn't going on absent of them. Home screen tweaks are always running to manipulate your home screen, and anything running that wasn't running before is using more system resources than without.

    On my iPhone 6 I feel like being jailbroken reduces my battery by about 30% as a result of the 20 or so tweaks I have. On my iPhone 6 Plus I feel like it reduces my battery by about 15% or so... since the battery is a bit better ratio to the device.

    Yes ccsettings. See my pic it the icon with the badge. It clears all badges on the home screen.

    I only have about 10 tweaks and I don't think its reducing my battery that much so far. I don't think winterboard uses cpu while the homescreen is being displayed. I think most the tweaks I have load up at boot and don't use any cpu at all unless they are called upon by me. They do however use up some of that very valuable limited ram we have in these phones! That's the only thing that makes me maybe want to go back to stock is using the full ram but really the A8 chip is so fast it doesn't take long to load things back up IMO. :)

    Oh so it'd clear the badges I don't want cleared too with one click?

    Yup. Not forever. I mean when you get a new notification you'll get your badges again. But once jail broken the badge over the settings won't have a chance to comeback unless you restore of course.

    That's a bit of a concern to me to trust the way it works though. If the badge saying I have an update is prevented from returning, what's to say the tweak doesn't prevent other badges from returning? That's a big concern, because it doesn't make sense it'd prevent one but not all from returning...

    The one that isn't returning is only the update over the settings. Since iOS won't be looking for updates anymore it won't come back again. All my other badges have come back fine and continue to work fine. I only cleared the badges once since I've had the tweak. You are thinking too much!

    You seem to have been correct, and provided great advice... for that I thank you! :)

    (Now I'm just waiting for a tweak that kills the update from showing in settings. SoftwareUpdateKiller makes it so you can't accidentally press it, but it's still showing in Settings)

    So nobody find anything that kills that badge from the settings app ? I'm using springtomize at the moment but the only problem with that is that it kills all the badges from the springboard.

    Use CCsettings to remove all badge count (can remove if you don't use it), then with iCleaner Pro disable the OTA Software Update. This method clears and permanently stops it from coming back.

    or
    (risky)
    Navigate to /Applications/Preferences.app and open General.plist
    Remove: the <dict> to </dict> where SOFTWARE_UPDATE is contained to completely remove that the Software Update tab from Settings update. To just remove it from badging, remove the <key>cellClass to the PSBadgedTableCell</key>

    You can add a letter in the end or rename it instead of deleting it. But you still need to clear the badge count with CCsettings first.

    So delete this (see image) and the badge will be gone from inside the settings app? This won't screw anything up? You are sure? :)
