noOTA Badge Lets You Clear Your iOS 5 Update Badge
noOTA Badge will clear that pesky badge.
iOS 5 users who have been waiting patiently on iOS 5.0 for the untethered jailbreak have been speaking out over and over about how annoying the over-the-air update badge for iOS 5.0.1 is. I was one of them. Eventually I got in contact with John Heaton and used BadgeClear, a 99¢ tweak that allows you to clear any badge off of any icon in iOS. But, why should you need to pay when there is no way for you to clear the badge yourself? That isn't fair. BadgeClear was intended for notifications, which you can push yourself to clear yourself, or you can use BadgeClear to make it easy. Unfortunately with over-the-air updating, you don't have a choice. The good thing about BadgeClear is, it works with every app. So if you want to clear badges universally, then get BadgeClear, it's still an awesome tweak and I love it personally.
Thankfully, the developer known as Moeseth
, has created a free tweak that you can download in Cydia right now. It's called noOTA badge, and it will let you clear that annoying "1" from your Settings app. If you're like me and you're all OCD about stupid things like unclearable badges on your Settings app, then check this tweak out!
This tweak has no settings to configure, you can simply install it and go. It will remove the annoying badge so that you can get on with your life and no longer need to look at something that you can't do anything about.
NOTE: If you own BadgeClear already, then you will not need to download this tweak!
Now that you can get rid of your badge, stay patient! The iOS 5.0 untethered jailbreak is on its way! Will you be downloading noOTA badge? Share in the comments below!
