    Title says it all. I want only the number, not the %

    Bolt on cydia

    i downloaded a bit ago but the icon (small bolt) won't show. Then when you try to take out the percentage , it gives you a fake number instead. Maybe it will work for you though.



    Springtomize. There's an option where you can delete things off your status bar and the percentage sign is one of them.

    Springtomize didn't work for me to remove only the percentage sign. It removed both the number and symbol. The way I removed both the battery image and the percentage sign, I used cleanstatus.

    good call on this, but removing the % sign leaves no space anymore and the number looks funky all the way over like that. I heard the percent sign was actually an image. Would you happen to know where to get to it, so I can just fill it with a blank image?

    Those % images are packaged into a .artwork file. You would have to extract that artwork file which contains about 1,800 images, thumb through them, replace the % images, repackage all images as an artwork file, and then add the artwork file back to your phone. Not an easy task, but not impossible either.

    If you're a Winterboard user you should be able to theme it. The images are named:

    1. ColorOnGrayShadow_Percent_%@2x.png
    2. ColorOnGrayShadow_PercentLow_%@2x.png
    3. WhiteOnBlackEtch_Percent_%@2x.png
    4. WhiteOnBlackEtch_PercentLow_%@2x.png
    5. WhiteOnBlackShadow_Percent_%@2x.png
    6. WhiteOnBlackShadow_PercentLow_%@2x.png

    (^These are for an iPhone 4S on iOS 5.1.1. May be different for other devices and OS's.)

    Create a folder (name it anything) and inside place another folder named "UIImages" (The two I's are intentional.)

    Inside that place your new icons and drop the entire folder into your Themes.xxxx folder then activate in winterboard and respring.

    (That's all a shot in the dark on my part, someone correct me if I'm wrong, I've never themed these images before.)

    Is there a way to where I can remove the battery and percentage sign on the status bar on only the lockscreen?
    I have a tweak that lets me use the charging picture in front of my lockscreen wp.
