Remove OTA Software Update Badge on iOS

For a jailbroken iPhone or iPad user, it can be very annoying to receive the OTA software update notification when a new iOS version is released. Updating the iOS will remove your jailbreak and you are probably unable to jailbreak your device again in near future.
