How to fix some mysterious problems.

Hey Everybody! I just have a simple question. I was just wondering how to hide a Cydia Tweak update in my Cydia app. The app source has been discontinued yet it works just fine. The only thing that bugs me is the badge. I do not want to turn off the badge because I want to know when I can update other tweaks. So all I want to know is how to hide that one tweak, Just like the tweak "Update Hide" that hides app store updates. Any help would be appreciated. :)

If the source is gone, how can there be updates?

Well the source has been shut down but the app was put up for update before the source got shut down.

My mistake spockers. The app has been discontinued but still works fine. All I want to do is get rid of the update sign

Springtomize will selectively clear badges.

Make sure this is not a piracy tweak. We do not support piracy.

Like spockers said, if you got this package from a repository that no longer exists, Cydia won't be prompting you to upgrade it, since it won't have any information that an upgrade exists.

If you got this package from a third-party repository that still exists, but you don't care about having that repository installed, you can just remove the repository - which will mean that Cydia will have no information about available upgrades, fixing your problem.
