    Default Get Battery Percentage on iPhone 2G/3G Running OS 3.0
    As you might know, a battery percentage was found as an option on non jailbroken iPhones by developers on beta versions of the new iPhone OS 3.0 . But when the OS was officially released, there was nowhere to be found. The mystery was soon unveiled and the much wanted battery percentage is only available on the new iPhone 3Gs.

    There wasnt a way for iPhone 3G users to have that , untill now. Unfortunately this methods i am about to tell you about are only available to jailbroken devices. So if you are not part of the jailbreaking community, this is your chance. You are missing a lot.




    This tweak is availabe via Cydia. First thing you need to do is to add this repo: http://apt.iphone-storage.de/ . Than go to Changes or Search and look for “asBattery” . This was tested with iPhone 3G ONLY, so 2G users you are alone here. Install the tweak and reboot your phone after install. Than go to Settings – General – Usage to activate it.

    I do not take credit of this method

    Call me crazy, but my iPhone 3G has shown the percentage of battery left since I updated it to 3.0. I can't turn it off, as I can with my 3GS. I have yet to jailbreak my 3G since updating to 3.0, but the percentage battery is always there.

    Just FYI. :^)

    Hey thank you Erny, for telling me how to turn on the battery percentage on in iPhone 3G. I thought Apple would provide it in it's officially released version. But Cydia did it.

    Well, what a twist...I restored to 3.0 and used redsn0w to jailbreak and ultrans0w to unlock for use with T-Mobile, and now I don't have the battery percentage. Ha! I guess I'll use the tweak, good find, bro!

    don't install this if you have "activateMMS2g" installed

    the two packages conflict (i should have figured this out earlier since they use the same plist...)
    anyway it gave me SWOD on a 2G iphone and i had to go in through SSH and delete the plist this package tried to install in order to get back up and running again
    just fyi thanks though, use sbsettings if you have activatemms2g!
