    Most likely it could be done by converting /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app/*lang.lproj*/SpringBoard.strings to ASCII and looking for the string, then replacing it.

    You can change it. It's easy.

    Also, iPhones/iPods have been doing this since their respective release dates.

    EDIT: Also, this is the red bar that StatusStyle selects when you select the "Red Bar."

    Does it only say 1 minute? Or can the time get higher...

    Maybe... after getting it disabled again?

    LOL! I got it disabled twice and it says 5 minutes now... you cant fail anymore after the first disable...

    +REP, not because it was a great post, but because he did not flame, call him a noob, etc. . .
    Way to much of the happens on this forum now.
    Just a simple answer, that is all that was needed.
