    on my 3G S i can choose to have the battery percentage displayed, but i just updated my dad's iphone 3G to 3.0 and he wanted the battery percentage too, but the option is not there..

    if this is a 3G S exclusive option its kind of ridiculous.. are there any ways of getting it on to my dad's 3G?

    * SSH into ur iphone
    * Go to /System/Library/CoreServices/Springboard.app/
    * Download the file M68AP.plist
    * Open the file using a text editor or a plist editor
    * Add a Boolean value under the capabilities dictionary
    * Boolean Key = gas-gauge-battery / boolean value = true
    * Save and upload the file to the same directory that it was originally in
    * Go onto the iPhone and respring
    * Now go to the application Settings -> General -> Usage and there will be a Battery Percentage toggle and you can use it to enable battery percentage next to battery icon in top-right corner.
