    I am on iOS 8.1.2 jailbroken with taig and for some reason, I am not seeing any battery usage info. Please see attached screenshot.

    Although it says 100% I have been using it for about 20 mins and haven't seen any change in battery info, it did populate when I first unplugged it from the wall?

    Any ideas?[​IMG]

    Have you done a soft (home + power button) reset since unplugging?

    You're jailbroken so you've probably performed a respring. Battery usage appears that way after a respring.

    The main screen where all your icons are located is called a Springboard. When the springboard is reloaded (black screen white apple logo) that is a called a respring.

    A lot of Cydia apps/tweaks require a respring when you install them or when you make changes. So chances are you will have to respring more often because you are jailbroken.

    Ah OK, I thought it was something like that. So will I get battery stats when I fully charge again?

    Cheers

    Most likely but next time you restart your phone (respring) due to some change in a jailbreak tweak it's going to blank out again :)

    Just wondering how OP could jailbreak and be unaware of what a respring is? I'm not JB and even I know what it is.

    Because I have only had an iOS device for 3 days and I am still learning the terminology.

    All jailbreaking took was running a windows program with my ipad plugged in. No need to know what a respring is?

    Fair enough.

    If you don't mind me asking, why decide to JB right out of the gate?

    I wanted to install retroarch.

    For completeness sake, I did have a 1st gen iPod touch which I jailbroke,so I probably knew what respringing was back then. Probably just forgot! Ha ha.
