How To Enable Battery Percentage On Your Jailbroken iPod Touch

If you’ve jailbroken your iPod touch using evasi0n jailbreak and wondering what you should do, then enabling battery percentage is probably the some popular trick.

It’s possible to enable the feature using Springtomize 2, which is the mother of all jailbreak tweaks, and also allows you to customize almost every aspect of your iOS device.

To enable battery percentage, install Springtomize 2 on your jailbroken iPod touch. It’s available for $2.99 on Cydia and in my opinion worth every penny.

When Apple released iOS 3.0 (previously known as iPhone OS 3.0), it added a toggle for Battery Percentage, which allowed users to see the remaining battery power in percentage, which much more easier than the bar indicator.

Unfortunately, at that time for some reason known only to Apple, the feature was not available on iPod touch. I was shocked to find out that it is still not available on the 4th or 5th generation iPod touch even on iOS 6.1.

You can enable the Battery Percentage using Springtomize 2. You have an option called Battery Percentage under Capabilities, below the HDR and Panorama options.

After enabling it, you will see a new Battery Percentage toggle in the Settings app under General -> Usage as seen below. If you tap on the On/Off toggle to enable it, it will start showing the remaining battery power in percentage just like the iPhone.

You can also enable the hidden Contacts app on the Home screen of the iPod touch just like we’ve enabled the other features.

Let me know how it goes.
