    It's a program you download from Cydia to give you access to even more setting than normal like numeric battery, permissions, Poof, and much more.

    But since you don't have a jailbroken ipod, you're pretty much unable to do so. So You'll have to just go buy yourself an app in the App Store like MemoryInfo or NumericBattery to tell you the percentage. And you'll only see it if you have the app open.

    Eh the battery percentage isn't that great...It's pretty inaccurate (usually for my ipod it would be about 5% off. So if my battery was actually around 50%, it would keep jumping up and down anywhere between 45-55%.

    Still, it's a pretty cool novelty to have

    I've personally stopped using it though.

    It's under SBSettings, then extras.

    SBSettings is a toggle program thats more portable than Boss Prefs because it can come up in any application by swiping your finger across the status bar.

    Yeah, it's pretty convenient. But oddly, mine is perfect when it comes to accuracy. I've used both BossPrefs and SBSettings although they're probably the same.

    Hmm...well just yesterday I charged my ipod and even when it was completely charged and still hooked up to my computer, the percentage read 88% haha

    Any tips on what I should do to get it accurate?
