stop appstore checking updates
Hello. I'm looking for the way to stop the appstore from auto checking for updates. It seems everyday the appstore pops up with a badge saying an app needs updating.
I already know ways to hide badges with cydia tweaks, but that is not what I'm aiming for yet.
I'd like to stop the appstore from automatically going out and checking for app updates.
kinda like the softwareupdatekiller but for appstore

There's a new tweak that just came out that automatically updates any app needing updated without the user having to do anything. I forget the name but it just recently came out on Cydia.

yeah, I saw that But I prefer updating on my own via itunes.

To each his own, however, I do not know of such a tweak unfortunately.

I've searched but found nothing.
This only came up since I've updated and jailbroken to ios6. The appstore icon always has a red bubble badge showing an update, which means it's using services and a small bit of data to go out and do it's automatic checks.
I just want to stop it from doing that just like the automatic softwareupdatekiller tweak

Just use that app to clear badges by an activation motion. Works for me. AppStore still checks but you can clear those annoying red badges!
