    I found that by changing the ProductVersion to 1.1.3 and the ProductBuildVersion to 4A93, iTunes is fooled into thinking you have version 1.1.3 and does not prompt you to upgrade.

    You can edit these lines in the SystemVersion.plist found at:

    /System/Library/CoreServices/SystemVersion.plist

    Well it is not that we do not want to upgrade. It is just that we want to wait for it to be jailbroken. You can also just click "Do not upgrade" until it is jailbroken.

    So what if you now tried to install the $20 app package from iTunes?

    Would this allow us to downgrade? If we set it to 1.1.2?
