    Hello,
    Today i just got that my iPad is downloading iOS6 without prompting me ....
    so i installed the cydia tweak (Software Update Killer) just to stop the update from being downloaded ....
    but i think the downloaded part of iOS update is still on the iPad and is showing as Other Storage
    so anyone knows where this file can be?! my Others Storage is like 1/22GB now :(

    According to the tweak description (in Cydia) the tweak is supposed to move the OTA files [to free up space]. If it's not doing so, my only suggestion is to contact the developer and ask him (or her) for assistance.

    Good. So, is that it, for sure? As in, did your download number and such disappear?

    P.S. I cleaned up this thread a bit. Had too much off-topic stuff going on...

    Yeah it is it for sure i actually checked I/O and Network activities and i am sure ... because i could see that the file is being written in that directory
    after removing the file in that directory everything went back to normal

    P.S. Thanks for cleaning up
