I have spent days trying to figure this out without getting very far - so now I need a little help and hopefully I will get some here: xfingers
2 days ago I found that my iPad 3 iOS 5.1.1( already Jailbroken ) had already downloaded iOS6 ready to be installed on my iPad .. so I have an update that I do not want and have no intention of installing.
I have tried to find the path that exists on my iPad 3 to delete the IPSW file but I can not find it any place ... all the threads point to a path on a MAC but not on the iPad 3 ?, on the iPodtouch it has a path of ~/Library/iTunes/iPod Software Updates .. but the iPad 3 has NO iTunes folder that I can see, I have ssh'd to the iPad 3 and selected show hidden files which is turned on, the problem I have is that I can not find the iTunes folder which must be hidden or in another location which I have not found - or indeed it might be a completly different path it sits in.
iTunes on my windows machine is configured not to download updates and no update exists on my PC but it sits on my iPad 3 .. I have found a few tweaks ( bit late now ) i.e no update is one of them ... will that stop this iOS6 update installing ? or will it install automatically after a period ?
I really want to delete it out of my iPad 3 as amoung other things it is taking up my drive space but can not find any way of doing it, so I guess I need help from people here who may know how to do this.
