    Hi please can you guy's or gal's help. I installed some thing from cydia that would make iTunes think you had the most up to date os. I had to upgrade then downgrade so have lost it so if anyone knows the name that would be perfect. I am running 4.3.3 & iTunes keeps asking me to go to 4.5 & you know that is a no no if you wont to jb. Thank's for reading all the best. Martin

    Can't you just click on no or cancel when iTunes asks you?

    Hi thanks for the reply. Yes I could do that but just thinking for the long term as I will not be upgrading for some time. Thanks again Martin

    There is a check box on the prompt in iTunes which says "Dont ask me again". You should check that... and it will never prompt you again for that device... :)

    It is a very bad idea to spoof the version of IOS you have just to stop iTunes asking you to upgrade. The dependency checks in Cydia rely on this being correct to protect you from installing things which are not compatible...

    I wouldn't reccoment it because like f4780y said, it might confuse cydia and screw something up.

    I'd suggest you not install it. Again, as f4780y states, you're just asking for complications.

    Plus, again, you can just tell iTunes to NOT ask you to update. It's what I do and I hook my iPad up to iTunes at least once a week - haven't been asked to update yet.

    I think he is. Many people have "accidentally" upgraded.
    (I don't know how you accidentally upgrade, iTunes asks you, the iPad shus off, and it says "upgrading" at the top :D)
