    It's quite simple.

    1) Download and install iBackupBot for iTunes Trial. But don't open it yet.
    Code:
    http://www.icopybot.com/ibackupbot_setup.exe
    2) Next create a backup of your device in iTunes and then CLOSE iTunes (or else you may run into problems later on).

    3) Open iBackupBot. See the folders on the left? Click yours, the most recent one. Next click "Path" to sort by Path.

    4) Look for Library/Preferences/com.apple.springboard.plist and double click it. On the registration screen that comes up, hit cancel.

    5) Find <dict> and create a new line after it. Then add this:
    Code:
    <key>SBFakeCarrier</key>
    <string>Carrier</string>
    <key>SBShowBatteryLevel</key>
    <true/>
    
    So it should look like this:

    6) Hit CTRL + S or just the save button at the top left corner of that editor window. Now close the window.

    7) Right click your folder and click Restore

    8) Done! If you don't see the changes, reboot your iPod.

    It does work. You just need to make sure you get the capitalization, etc. exactly right on the Keys.

    Works great

    Yep, why? I resized the pic so people don't get overwhelmed.

    Glad you two got it working!
