    If one were to think like me, the thought of ios 7 automatically downloading onto my phone is not a good thing.
    It is a waste of space and blah blah blah.

    The REAL sketchy part is that it automatically downloads.

    In this thread, I will be discussing how to effectively delete the update files & prevent it from happening again.

    Requirements
    • iDevice with access to root filesystem
    • iFile / SSH 'or anything capable of accessing the filesystem'
    • root privelege


    ----STEP 1----
    Navigate to /etc

    Make a copy of the file named 'host' and rename the copy to 'host.backup'. This creates a safety net.

    Open the 'host' file and append the line
    Code:
    127.0.0.1                appldlnd.apple.com
    File should look similar to this one:


    ----STEP 2-----
    Navigate to /var/MobileSoftwareUpdate

    delete all contents

    NO MORE AUTO DOWNLOAD AND MORE FREESPACE
