Battery percentage without jailbreak?

Is it even possible?

Thanks!

Current version 1.4 has it, but developer has noted on app store that 1.5 has been rejected due to the battery indicator and it is having to be removed as a feature.

Just a heads up.

So if we update to 1.5 it will be taken off? Screw that, I might just stay with 1.4.

Yeah apparently the next version won't show the battery percentage...

Wow, Apple is a real piece of **** sometimes.

So now the question is,

when Free Memory 1.4 goes to 1.5, how can I ignore that update so it won't show a badge on the App Store icon? Or I will always be stuck with the badge until I update?

I really just needed to see a percentage view of my battery and that app does it for me without having to jailbreak.

I think you'll be stuck with seeing the badge, although I think there is another app like Free Memory that shows the percentage of battery life left.

I'd be willing to bet that very, very few iPhone owners want this feature. As Bertrand has pointed out before, an overabundance of choices can be worse than leaving out a couple features that only a few people want.

I'll delete the app. It's the main reason I bought it as well. I like knowing the percentage of battery charge I have.

You could always jailbreak... get the battery percentage hack... backup... restore... restore from backup. Then you'll still have the battery percentage and you can tap on it to change it from icon to percent.

Really? I always thought the percentage was always there, I didn't know could tap it to bring up the icon.
I'll most likely do this one redsn0w is released.

Yeh. Shame because they had intended to add it.

Do you know the name of the app? or do I have to jailbreak?

That seems like a reasonable solution. Is it through SBSettings or there is an actual hack that exists? Though I have not needed to jailbreak just yet, but this might be the reason to.

Thanks in advance!

I JB on 2.2, installed the % hack and pretty much everything else I could find, then updated to 2.2.1 and haven't JB again yet.

Still got the % showing - just tap to go back and forth.

I thought at first Apple had implemented it in 2.2.1

The only thing I miss from not being JB is having a wallpaper and SBSettings.
