    Default Battery Control on 3.1.2
    I've heard a couple reports of issues with Battery Control not showing battery percentages on 3.1.2. I haven't upgraded yet (plan to tonight) but I wanted to find out if anyone else is experiencing these types of issues.

    I haven't used battery control before, but I just updated to 3.1.2 last night. I installed your Battery Control to see if there were any issues on mine and there doesn't seem to be a problem. I will keep an eye on it through the day and see if anything changes. I usually have the battery and percentage showing. Is there a particular combination of settings that some have noticed problems with?

    Not that I know of. The people reporting the issue have been not-so-specific. Can you try it with only percentage showing, not both?

    No problems so far, yesterday was a lot of on and off with a couple apps running in the background. I'm at work for the next two days. I put the premium app on and am flipping back and forth from % to battery every now and then. I'll update again only if there is a problem. Nice app!

    I have faced this sort of problem in the last month, but I solved it using the following steps-
    1. Launch SBSettings, tap on the More button. This will take you to the settings screen of SBSettings.
    2. Then tap on “Extra & Options” at the bottom of the screen.
    3. Here tap on the toggle button to enable Numeric Battery.
    4. I had to reboot my iPhone to see the battery indicator in percentage.

    You can show battery and percentage on the iPhone natively. What is the point of this application?

    not all devices do this,[iTouches]
    also it lets you change the font color of the percentage.
    and it lets you choose where you want the percentage[springboard, in apps]

    Default Re: Battery Control on 3.1.2
    If you want to control your battery through 2 days to 4 days then just do this..

    For all iPod models:

    1. From the main menu, select Settings > Repeat and select the Repeat options until it says All.

    2. Select Settings > Backlight Timer, then select Off.

    3. Select Settings > EQ, then select Off.

    4. Select the album you imported in the step 3, select any song, then press the Play button. The album should play over and over until the battery is depleted.

    I think this will help you to save more battery so you don't need to check the battery life.

    I've been searching everywhere to find info on styling Battery Control with CSS for use with themes in Winterboard. How is this achieved?

    For a 2g iPhone, is there significant battery drainage with 3.1.2 compared with 3.1.3? My battery drains while sleeping on 3.1.2 but that never happened on 3.1.3 I need 3.1.2 so I can have "enable mms for 2g" on it.
