    Try doing a complete restore before updating in iTunes. Updating over jailbreaks can cause memory problems and other issues. Just hit the "Restore" button in iTunes and then let it do it's thing.

    not a direct reply to this, but similar ...how do you stop the iphone from trying to update to 6.0? in settings?

    i saw some where on cydia that your not to update to 6.0 ever or it will mess up the jailbreak bigtime, or untill 6.0 is jailbroke and updated on redsn0w

    Right! U should never do an OTA update on a JB phone... Always do restore or DFU mode restore!

    There is a tweak in Cydia to get rid of that annoying update badge on settings... No OTA update, but u still have to be careful not to hit update!

    There is a tweak in Cydia called noupdate I believe. It will stop your phone from trying to update from the software update section in settings.

    looks like no update stops it from updating but the red badge is still there on the settings icon


    upadated:::: the noota badge took care of it , u will have to install both to get it from even trying to update and getting rid of the red badge, thxs all!
