    Default [1.1.3] Simple way to prevent update to 1.1.3

    For windows:
    Edit c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts, add follow line and save.
    Code:
      127.0.0.1 appldnld.apple.com.edgesuite.net
    For MacOS, add follow line to /etc/hosts:
    Code:
      127.0.0.1 appldnld.apple.com.edgesuite.net
    I never use MAC, but for a BSD OS, /etc/hosts should works same as UNIX/linux.

    To double check, open a cmd.exe (windows) or termal (MAC), run:
    Code:
    ping appldnld.apple.com.edgesuite.net
    If you see resolved host 127.0.0.1, the computer should never connect to upgrade server until you remove the line from that file.

    IMPORTANT: I did't perform real test to iTunes's FW upgrade, and it's download location may using appldnld.apple.com.edgesuite.net or it's real IP address or just another server, so if anyone had tested, please confirm or correct me.

    are you sure you found all servers? i tryed appldnld.apple.com.edgesuite.com for example and got a reply (even while i edited the hosts file like you said)

    best would be to set wildcards, i think thats possible on linux.

    If iTunes use host "appldnld.apple.com.edgesuite.com" as download server, then hosts file modification trick will works no matter how many IPs the host binded to.

    The appldnld.apple.com.edgesuite.com should use CDN (Content delivery network) to accelerate download speed for different location users, so IP addresses may be many.

    For windows, name resolution works immediately after save. For IE, you should restart IE for it have internal DNS cache.

    For MAC/Linux, the name resolution has certain order, if hosts is the first order, name resolution works immediately after save too. But if name server is the first order, you should change the resolution order first.

    Or just use your head and don't press okay to the download update query and then don't hit the install update button. It's not that hard really. Only useful if it's your partners phone and they're likely to mistakenly update or something.

    best way on Mac is to change the permission of ~/Library/iTunes/iPhone Software Update so that you cannot access it, making it impossible for iTunes to download the new firmware
