    I'm afraid you can't cancel the update once it's started.

    ok guys, found a solution without restoring thanks to some guys in another forum:
    you can use iEplorer or iFunbox to access the ipad filesystem

    Browse to /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/ and remove the following files:
    com.apple.softwareupdateservicesd.plist
    com.apple.mobile.softwareupdated.plist
    com.apple.OTACrashCopier.plist
    com.apple.OTATaskingAgent.plist

    you can use iEplorer or iFunbox to access the ipad filesystem.
    don't know if have to be jailbroken thou. hope this help somebody
