    Be sure that you turn it ON via SBSettings. Go to More -> Extra & Options. SBSettings isn't what caused the status bar not to work, it was a line of code in some theme's Info.plist. I've been using SBSettings since I updated right when the 3.0 jailbreak was released.

    Doesn't 3.0 come standard with the percentage?

    Here's a screenshot of mine, http://img233.imageshack.us/img233/7...kshottrohz.png

    go into settings>general>useage and it's at the very top

    3.0 and battery percentage is standard for iPhone 3gs not 3g.

    For sbsettings swipe your finger across the title bar at the top. (At&T, clock, battery level indicator)
    SBSettings will now pop open. Hit the "MORE" button. Hit the "Extras & Options" Button. Turn "ON" the Numeric Battery. Enjoy.

    are you saying theres no icon for sbsettings? to open sb settings you slide your finger across the status bar and it drops down.

    edit: beat me to it

    I'd emailed Big Boss (dev for SBSettings) about changing the color of the %, because I'd thought it was part of SBSettings and he said that all versions of 3.0 have the battery % percentage hidden in the springboard and all SBSettings does is simply activate it. I'm on a 2G running 3.0 and it works for me.

    ^^I believe they're on the Cydia download page.
    Could be wrong but I remember seeing them SOMEWHERE.
    I always feel sorry for the guy in the iPhone commercials. He always gets a call right in the middle of trying to do something

    when I used Boss it would reset the springboard and would not work. I am on 3.0. I found this file attached and I put it in the /root/System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app
    The file replaces M68AP.plist. when I first updated to 3.0 I had it then I had to restore and it was gone. After you SSH and replace the file then respring and go to settings/general/usage and it will be on the top.

    Hope this helps

    There now it should be attached

    so if you dont' want to do the whole sbsettings thing you can just ssh to where the last person told you and you can replace the m68ap.plist with this or you can use theirs haha when i was attatching this i saw they didn't have an attatchment and so i put one on but as i did they did so sorry
