How to hide updates from market?

I've been using a certain app for some time now, but according to the many 1-star reviews the latest "update" has got, it breaks compatibility with Tasker, which is not something I want.

Is there a way to at least temporarily remove the regular update notifications I receive, or stop the app appearing at the top of my update list every time?

Using Nexus S with official 4.0.3.

You can use Titanium backup for this purpose.

However you'll need root access for this to work.

From this Titanium backup wiki:

Can I tell the Market that I do not want to update a specific app?

Yes. Just long-click on an app in the Titanium Backup list and hit "Detach from Market".

  • Unfortunately I'm not rooted, but this may be a good reason to make the jump!
