    So I have nobadgeota (I think that's what it is called) installed to hide the badge on the settings app. However when I click on settings there is a badge on the general tab with a "1" on it. Is there anyone to get rid of that as well?

    Sorry lonman06 but I'm not aware of any tweak that does that.

    I care. It bugs me as well. Maybe an OCD thing. If there is an alert on my phone of any kind I feel a complusion to clear it ASAP. Since I'm jailbroken and don't want the iOS 5.1 upgrade, I am stuck looking at a red 1 on my settings icon and it bugs the hell out of me. Wish it didn't, but it does. It's just the way I'm wired.

    The badge you can get rid of, the "1" next to update in setting you can't. Just read the directions and the red 1 will be gone.

    Honestly, how often in a day (and for how many seconds) do you have the settings app/menu open. :confused:

    Don't tell me you open it just to stare at the red circle to allow it to upset you. :roll eyes:

    This is likely the reason no one has wasted the time to fix the red notification inside he settings menu.

    I seem to have gotten rid of that badge with a combination of "noOTA badge" and "No Update." The latter prevents the update from even appearing if you tap on Settings>General>Software Update to preclude the possibility of "accidentally," i.e., carelessly upgrading. I believe that with just "No Update" I still had the blue "1" badge on the "General" menu item, so if "noOTA badge" by itself doesn't hide that badge there must be some sort of synergy between the two.

    have the same thing as the OP - noOTAupdate worked on getting rid of the badge on the homescreen, but nothing ive tried (including no update) gets rid of it on settings. i honestly was really ocd about it last friday (when 5.1 was released) but now it doesnt really bother me that much (and im in the settings app all the time!).

    The noOTAupdate was all I needed. Not worried about the badge inside of settings....that's a bit extreme (but I get it!)

    Glad I'm not the only one who thinks that about her.

    I dated a girl once like her but that's another issue. :D

    The latest version of No Update now takes care of both badges as well as disabling update checking to prevent "accidental" updates. It's really a great little tweak.

    Howdy Latinist :)

    I had to install both (No Update) to stop the software update in settings from opening and NoOTA to remove the springboard badge.

    Thanks for this. Great tweak indeed and very useful to prevent any accidental software update. However as mentioned by dhlizard, it does NOT remove the update badge from SB.

    Hmm. My 4S shows no sign of the badges despite having uninstalled noOTA badge after upgrading to the latest No Update. Perhaps this is because I had already cleared the badges and No Update prevented re-checking.

    If the latest No Update didn't clear the badges for you, you should contact the developer. The latest version was supposed to add that functionality.

    I’m also annoyed by the “1” next to “General” in Settings (and also next to “Software Update” in Settings>General) and I would like a way to eliminate them.

    I already had both No Update and noOTA badge installed. I just upgraded to v1.4 of No Update, but it did not remove either of the “1” badges within Settings.

    Then I tried removing both No Update and noOTA badge, then reinstalling them in that order. The badges inside Settings are still there.

    No Update does its job of preventing system updates from happening, and noOTA badge does its job of removing the red badge from SB, but they do not remove the “1” badges inside Setting, at least not for me.

    Does No Update also prevent updating in iTunes?

    No. It prevents OTA updates only.

    Seriously? No one has fixed this yet? It's annoying as hell.

    Only to just a few.
    After all, how often is the settings app open during a day.

    If you have winterboard installed get the "remove software update" theme and it will be gone!

    You freaking rock. Thanks so much for finding this solution!! It was driving me (and tons of my friends) totally batty!

    ----------

    I'd say I open settings just about 4-5 times a day. So it's something you end up noticing all day. And it's lame.

    But thankfully, it's now fixed! ;)

    New app available in Cydia called Software Update Killer hides ALL update app badges (settings icon, general tab, software update tab) + it DISABLES installation of new update. All-in-one!

    Just installed it on my 4S and it worked flawlessly. Best part of all, garbage Winterboard app NOT required.

    I was under the impression that if one is jailbroken the OTA Update will not complete anyway ?

    It doesn't but why take the chance of it possibly freezing your device or even putting it in a spring loop. Always better to be SAFE than sorry....especially when you can't restore your JB right now (4S).
