One of the best features of an iDevice is that you can choose to enable the battery percentage to better gauge how much longer do you have before your iDevice run out of juice. Yes i know what you’re thinking. The iPod Touch doesn’t come with that option. That is true on all generations of the iPod Touch and i do not know why is that so. But i do know how to enable it. In this guide, i will teach you how to enable the battery percentage found in iPhones and iPads, Without Jailbreaking.
- iPod Touch [iPhones and iPads can activate the battery percentage natively.]
- Does not require a jailbreak.
- Backup Files
- ~/Library/Application Support/MobileSync/Backup/ [Mac]
- C:Documents and Settings[username]Application DataApple ComputerMobileSyncBackup [XP]
- C:Users[username]AppDataRoamingMobileSyncBackup [Vista, you need to show hidden files]
Here are the steps.
- Download iBackupBot Trial [Support the developer by purchasing it if you think it is super useful.]
- Open iBackupBot after it’s downloaded [Look to the left panel, if you see your backup file there, skip to step 6.
- Click File, Open.
- Navigate to the backup file.
- Select the plus sign beside 'iTunes Backup' at the left sidebar.
- Select the backup folder for your iPod Touch
- Scroll down the list until you see the file 'Library/Preferences/com.apple.springboard.plist'
- Double Click it. [A message will popup requesting you to register. Click Cancel]
- In the beginning, you will see this
- After the <dict>, insert this below it
- Press Ctrl + S or Click the ‘save’ button.
- Close that Window.
- Right click that backup file
- Click ‘Restore’
- Press ‘Yes’
- Let iBackupBot do the restore. [Go get a cup of coffee.]
After the phone is restored, you will find the battery percentage already there. Enjoy! [Unlike the previous guide also using iBackupBot, you can perform a restart with no problems.]
