    After hours of searching I finally found where the status bar is in springboard.app plist file. I was able to change the device name give myself the battery percentage (you also have to edit general.plist). But now I am haveing trouble figuring out the code so I can get the time and the date on my status bar. I searched online for hours on end on how to write code for time in XML and it just isn't working(I'm a noob when it comes to programming). And I don't want to use other people programs because I'm ignorant I was already spoon feed the jailbreak I don't want to be spoon feed modifying my ipod. Even though I need spoon feeding now. I appreciate any kind of help. Thank you for your time to whom ever reads this.

    I'm sorry, I can't help you here, but I was wondering if you would be insulted if I quoted you in my sig?

    When I first started out modding my iPod, I googled what I wanted to mod, and there's almost always an app to do it...

    Once I became comfortable I began googling tutorials to manually do the mods...It is worth it to learn...Not having to use Winterboard has kept my iPod nice and snappy...

    EDIT, btw for the time/date, you should just get sbsettings...Its a GREAT app, very useful, and it has an option for that built in.

    I find it funny that you — after remarking about keeping your iPod running quickly/smoothly/"snap(pily)" —recommend SBSettings, a clunky RAM hog. Yes, it is an excellent idea, but let's leave our praise at that!

    Using Winterboard to swap out or modify plists will not negatively affect performance. I promise. The ease it affords you greatly outweighs the immeasurable (for our purposes) amount of time it takes Winterboard to dynamically replace things when you respring.

    Carry on.
