I've tried all the Blog techniques but must be missing something. I need to hide the "Check Out" Edit Control Block Menu Item on a Form Library but I don't want to modify the Masterpage with a custom core.js file. Can someone offer a jQuery solution?

If you want to hide it for specific users, remove their permissions to edit items.

Anyway,If you need to hide the ECB menu items using Jquery or core.js, Please check out :
