    Default Permanently prevent itunes from updating the iphone

    Hey there folks... sorry if this is already answered somewhere i could not find it.

    Many friends of mine have bougth iphones and i unlocked for them... and i tell them countless times that when a new iphone update arrives they must not update! but they do it anyway so i get a really nice job as an iphone viriginator and stuff...

    is there a way? a hack, modifying hosts files or something like that to prevent itunes from updating the iphone?

    please help me! thanks!

    If you're on a Mac just do this:

    chmod 000 ~/Library/iTunes/iPhone\ Software\ Updates/

    iTunes will be dined access to this directory and won't download new updates even if you ask it to do so, giving up on an error.

    If you really wan't to update then remember to:

    chmod 755 ~/Library/iTunes/iPhone\ Software\ Updates/

    I'm wondering if there is anything in the registry (for Windows) to disable this feature...

    Edit that file that controls local DNS to show the Apple Update website at 127.0.0.1.

    dnshosts I think the file is.

    thanks folks!

    whats the apple update website url?

    i think we can add a line in the hosts file...

    is located in

    C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\

    the file name is "hosts" without extensions...

    we should add a line like this

    127.0.0.1 appldnld.apple.com

    can anyone confirm the url? for the firmware download? or for the update check?
