    Do you think apple will add this is 4.3 to the ipod touch? this is the only feature i really want. Why does the iPhone and iPad have it but not the iPod Touch? Do you think its likely we will see an option for a battery percentage?

    If not then Jailbreaking gives you a very simple way of adding this feature.

    You know there are apps for this, right? Some of them are free.

    I don't think you even need to jailbreak to get it. I used a friend's 3GS backup on my 3G and had the option available. Maybe using an iPhone backup on an iPod would do the same?

    Actually you are wrong. Apple does not allow apps in the App Store allow modifications of the iOS software.

    You are misunderstanding his statement. emptyCup is saying their are apps that let you view your battery percentage, not "add" it to the status bar. However, I believe emptyCup is misunderstanding MacDaddy80's question.

    I have a 2nd-gen iPod Touch, and it shows battery percentage, and it's not jailbroken, and runs 4.2.1....

    Am I an ET?

    Has it been jailbroken in the past? I think the battery percentage is one of the few things that can stick around even after upgrading to a newer iOS whether you re-jailbreak or not.

    The same thing happened to me: i was on ios 4.1 on an ipod touch 2g mc model which was jailbroken. Then, when I upgraded to ios 4.2.1 (without jailbreaking), I was amazed to see the battery percent still there. This didn't happen the last time I upgraded from ios 4.1 to 4.2.1. Weird:confused:

    I would like this feature as well. I don't understand why the itouch 4 didn't come with it. I love it on my iphone.

    Well, I think jailbreak can solve most of troublesomes which you want to deal with.

    You don't need to jailbreak to get battery percent, just modify a backup. I believe the instructions have been posted on this forum before.
