    What Cydia App do I use to add the battery percent thing like the 3GS? I do not want to completely erase the meter, just add the percent indicator next to it.

    I believe it was in SBPref's. With mine, I tap the battery and it switches to a percent and tap again, it switches back to the battery.

    The fastest way would be to use SBSettings. Install it, Open it, Go to more and then Extras & Options, there activate the first option named "Numeric Battery" and voila!

    My method is better in my opinion because it gives you the percent next to the battery (Just like the 3G S and the way the OP wants it). I like having both the percent and the bar:p

    You cant really access anything else with SBsettings open.

    sbsettings allows my phone to have the percentage EXACTLY like the 3gs model...

    very strange, i love it, but still strange.

    i think it carried over from my old jailbreak, because it was like that before i used redsnow to rejailbreak it... whatev

    After installing SBSettings, where is it located? I cant seem to find it anywhere.

    Im guessing you can activate it by editing the N82AP.plist file? like you can with homescreen backgrounds and multitasking..
    using ifile find /System/Library/CoreServices/Springboard.app/N82AP.plist

    im guessing its gas-gauge-batter that you have to change from false to true, not sure. (I enabled it when jailbreaking)
    correct me if im wrong..

    ive used this way with multitasking and it works perfect

    You can also use David Ashman's excellent tweak "Battery Control."
