    Something I just learned.
    First, ssh into iPod. Next, navigate to "system/library/coreservices/springboard.app". Locate "BatteryReflectionMask.png", convert it to a readable .png, and copy it to a findable location. Open the file in any image editor. Fill the entire image with black. Upload back onto iPod and restart the springboard. For the lazy users, attached is the edited file. Just ssh in and upload it to "system/library/coreservices/springboard.app"

    Heres the final result:

    EDIT: This can be used to create different effects. Use a black - transparent gradient to change. Haven't tested with any colors.

    For this one you DO need to actually reset ipod. reseting springboard won't work. Transparent = reflecting area, opacity = dilution, colors = solid.
