    I recently changed a few things in the Springboard.strings and I forgot to back it up. The problem is that whenever my battery reaches 10 or 20% an alert comes up and says something like 57502672% of battery remaining and the dismiss button is also messed up.

    Try using a different theme and see if it still happens.

    Yah, it is tied to themes somehow.

    Try uninstalling WinterBoard, see if it still does it, then reinstall it.
    Re-enable your theme, and it might fix the problem, all though I'm pretty sure it is tied to your theme.

    If it is, you can modify the part of the theme that causes the bug (will be hard to find) or just stop using the theme altogether

    It's a simple theme that modifies the SpringnBoard.strings file. If you go into the original file, you should find a line saying:

    Code:
    "LOW_BATT_MSG_LEVEL"="%@ofbatteryremaining";
    By replacing the %@ with a huge number, you get what's in your image.
    All this can be done with any theme, to fix it, just delete the SpringBoard.strings in the suspected theme
