    I'm attempting to enable battery percentage by changing the "General.plist", but in this tut, he says to change from:
    Code:
    <array>
    
        <string>unified-ipod</string>
    
    </array> 
    to:

    Code:
    <array>
    
        <dict>
    
            <key>unified-ipod</key>
    
            <false/>
    
        </dict>
    
    </array> 
    But I am unable to find the "unified-ipod" string.

    All it shows in the 3rd section of code, is:

    Code:
                            <key>cell</key>
    			<string>PSLinkListCell</string>
    			<key>detail</key>
    			<string>UsageController</string>
    			<key>get</key>
    			<string>usageElapsed:</string>
    			<key>label</key>
    			<string>USAGE</string>
    Anybody have any ideas as to what I can do?

    Idk this method, But if you have SBSettings just go into more > Extras & Options > And Turn Numeric Battery On.
    Its a simpler way.

    Isn't unified-ipod like putting the Music and Video icons together to make an iPod icon like the iPhone.

    To get the percentage do this:

    Modify the N72AP.plist (2nd generation iPod touch) in the folder /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app to add to the capabilities section:
    Code:

    Respring and go turn on the option. From the Settings app, go into General --> Usage --> toggle the Battery Percentage to 'On'. Then you have percentage next to your battery icon.

    I heard that consumes battery power


    I did this on my ipod when it was on 3.1.2
    I did it the same way, except

    on 3.0 the string was


    on 4.0 I found it as

    And on an ipod touch, I figured that cellular data was just as superfluous so I replaced that instead with the given script

    Of course it's good to make backup [original] copies of any files you edit
