    Once it's downloaded you can remove it.. Just don't go into that setting section.

    Besides jailbreaking and using a mod, there is no way to do it.

    Go into settings - general - usage and under "Storage" go to manage storage and you'll see 8.0.1 there. Just delete it.

    It wouldn't accidentally install anyway since Apple servers won't sign it even if you tried to manually install it.

    once you've downloaded it you can't go back to your previous iOS version.

    Not quite. Once they've installed it, they can't go back. However if they have downloaded it but not yet installed it they can remove the download.

    For the original poster, why not just install the latest version of iOS (8.1), and just skip 8.0.1 all together?

    Set auto update to manual setting that way you can chose it if you change your mind.
