This guide will show you how to enable the battery percentage on the status bar, without jailbreaking your iPod touch. This means that it will work on ALL generations. Stage 1: Setup Download ibackupbot from this site: http://www.icopybot.com/ibackupbot_setup.exe Plug in your iPod touch, and in iTunes will automatically make a backup for you. If it doesn't you are set to make backups to iCloud. Change this in the settings on iTunes by clicking on your iPod and scrolling down, then backup the iPod onto iTunes. Open ibackupbot, and click your most recent backup which should be located on the left side (each backup has a date associated with it, look for the newest one). There will be a long list of files to choose from. Find: Library/Preferences/com.apple.springboard.plist and double click it. Hit cancel if there is a registration notice and it will still open. After <dict> type this info in this format: <key>SBShowBatteryLevel</key> <true/> You can also change your 'carrier' with: <key>SBFakeCarrier</key> <string>NEW NAME HERE</string> Save the file using the button at the top left. Stage 2: Restoring Right click your backup in ibackupbot and hit restore. This will take about 5 minutes before being completed. You shouldn't have to do anything else now, as all your apps and data should have stayed on the iPod. If they didn't, a sync with iTunes will put them all back on again. All of your apps will retain their data from the previous backup. To turn this feature off, you need to redo all those steps, but instead of adding text to the file you remove it. I should note this information was from another post in these forums, but was neatened up by me. I've forgotten who posted it though.
