    All credit goes to ibizaGTi for the discovery. His tut was a little sketchy(No Offense) and i'm just here to fill the gaps.

    I TAKE NO CREDIT FOR THIS DISCOVERY I'M JUST WRITING A TUTORIAL.


    Method 1:


    General.plist is located in /Application/Preferences.app/General.plist
    N72AP.plist is in /System/CoreServices/Springboard.app/N72AP.plist
    Requirements
    -iPod Touch MB Model 8,16,32 GB iPod Touch MC Model 8GB
    -iDevice Browser (iFile,WinSCP,iFunBox)

    You're device must be jailbroken with any method (Redsn0w,Sn0wbreeze,JailbreakMe.com)

    Tutorial
    1.Connect you're device to the PC and open you're iDevice browser.

    2. Navigate to \System\Library\CoreService\SpringBoard.app and locate a file named N72AP.plist. Open it.
    It should look like this because it is encrypted:

    3.Copy N72AP.plist to you're desktop.

    4. Go to This Converter.

    5. Convert the N72AP.plist and download the file it gives you.

    6. Rename XML.plist to N72AP.plist.

    7. Replace N72AP.plist in \System\Library\CoreService\SpringBoard.app

    8. When you replace it will be unencrypted and will look like this:

    Multitasking
    1. Open N72AP.plist

    2. Locate

    <key>wifi</key>
    <true/>

    in N72AP.plist and under it add

    <key>multitasking</key>
    <true/>

    For multitasking.

    It Should Look Like This

    Wallpapers

    1. For Wallpapers, just add the following line to N72AP.plist under the multitasking line:

    <key>homescreen-wallpaper</key>
    <true/>

    Note:Wallpapers slow down the device alot so just delete the following from \System\Library\CoreService\SpringBoard.app:

    WallpaperGradientLandscapeBottomT.png
    WallpaperGradientLandscapeTopT.png
    WallpaperGradientPortraitBottomT.png
    WallpaperGradientPortraitTopT.png
    WallpaperIconDockShadow.png
    WallpaperIconDockShadowT.png
    WallpaperIconShadow.png
    WallpaperIconShadowT.png

    The Final N72AP.plist should look like this:

    Battery Percetage

    For the battery percentage you must edit some files.

    1.Locate General.plist in /Applications/Preferences.app/and copy it to you're desktop.

    2.Convert it with the same site and replace the original in the device.

    3. Look for

    <string>USAGE</string>
    <key>requiredCapabilities</key>
    <array>
    <string>cellular-data</string>
    </array>

    and replace it with

    <string>USAGE</string>
    <key>requiredCapabilities</key>
    <array>
    <dict>
    <key>unified-ipod</key>
    <false/>
    </dict>
    </array>
    </dict>
    4. Go to N72AP.plist and under
    <key>homescreen-wallpaper</key>
    <true/>

    add

    <key>gas-gauge-battery</key>
    <true/>

    It should look like this if you enabled all the features:

    just get winterboard from cydia and then search "Features For iPod Touch 2G" on cydia and install that, and after that you need to go to winterboard and go to "themes" or something and enable the 3g features youd like. No this is not a theme it does the same thing as above but it is much easier and faster so just use that feature and belive me u wont regret it!

    Winterboard can cause some lag.

    This tutorial is much faster than the Features method.
