I absolutely do not want the new 5.1 update. Is there any way to remove the Red update indicator from the settings icon with out doing the update.

Thanks

Can you acknowledge the badge, start the update, cancel before it begins and see if the badge goes away? Just an idea... I have no clue if it will work or not.

Or don't accept the terms or whatever, and cancel out at that point. :confused:

I am curious though, why do you not want to update to 5.1 if you aren't jailbroken?
My 4s works perfectly for me. I can go 3 days on the battery with my use so battery life is not an issue for me. I don't want to loose my "Jack Legged" toggles I've added. I don't like the addition of the swipe up camera icon on the lock screen. Tap, tap, tap and I'm in my camera, I don't want tap, swipe up. I just don't want any changes to my phone no matter what others have liked about the update.

Depends on how many times he does it, and how long he keeps the phone. There are certainly people out there with home button issues, but it is not the norm. Most people do just fine for the life of their phone.
