    iPod touch Battery Percentage

    Hi I am having an iPod since form 6 months. It is having a kind of battery icon on the top side that shows the amount of battery left in the device. I want to see a percentage here instead of that tiny animation. I am unable to find the same. I hope there will be some way of making this thing work better. Is there any app available that can do this. I had yet not found anything on iTunes store for the same. I had also checked inside settings but still unable to find anything.

    You can do that by for that, you have to go ahead and jailbreak your device. It is a complicated part. If you are ready to do that then check out the below steps:

    1 Jailbreak your iPhone (if not already done)
    2 Install " Open SSH "from Cydia or Icy ( no need to add source )
    3 Can you connect to your iPhone via a software as cyberduck for MAC, or, more simply , DiskAid ( PC and Mac)
    4 Scroll / System/Library/CoreServices/
    5 Open M68AP and : PC : add - gauge diesel - battery ( newline ) in capabilities.
    MAC: you select Capabilities and click " add item "call -gauge diesel - battery, then instead of string
    boolean set and click the right box .
    6 Restart your iPhone and go to Settings / General / Use / Battery level , and drag the button

    Apple has a hidden feature in the firmware 3.0. After having this update it is possible to have a battery percentage instead of that animated battery icon on the top right side. I am not sure where to find that by I was able to see that in my friends device. It is not recommended to jailbreak your phone. It can cause serious problem if you do that and there are chances that your phone might not able to boot.
