It's a process, but if you really want it...

1. Downgrade to 2.2.1 (this is a pain I hear)
2. Jailbreak
3. Install SBSettings
4. Go into options and enable numeric battery
5. Update back to 3.0

But wouldn't you have to restore from a backup when going back to 3.0 to keep the percentage function?

Wasn't the battery percentage in the pics from the Apple demos? I thought it was...and if so, you should not have to jailbreak......

no i just looked at the video again none of the screenshots, or demo phones had %...

the only way i got it was by leaving it enabled when i restored.

I'm glad there was a post about this already. I went from a 'restore' 3.0 to 'new' 3.0 and it was missing...I had to double check the version # in settings to make sure.

I was confused about this as well, but no Apple videos have it. The first time we saw the percentage indicator around here was when wildonrio posted some of the first 3.0 screenshots, and it was a residual from his jailbreak.

the percentage indicator is essential, i definitely want that when i get 3.0 (not got it yet, but am all ears if you can download it from somewhere)
