I managed to enable it on my iphone 2G but it only shows up when my screen is locked. When I unlock it, it is hidden by my alarm icon! :( Anyone knows how I can fix this? The alarm icon is a bit further when the screen is lock but seems to overlap when it is unlocked.

Can I show the battery percentage using the iPhone 3G with the 3.0 OS... Or is battery percentage only capable with the 3GS?

Yeah 3g is game. its a 3.0 software feature, not a hardware feature

Use asBattery -> Cydia -> Repo -> iphone-notes.de

Well, technically this is a 3GS feature only, but it's added to the firmwares for the other devices as well. To enable it, jailbreak your device, install sbsettings from Cydia, and then on sbsettings's pull down menu, click "More", then in the app that launches, click "extras" and turn on the "numeric battery" setting. sbsettings has had this option before 3.0, but in 3.0, since the firmware already supports it, this merely enables the numeric battery setting already on the device instead of installing support for it when you install sbsettings. If that makes sense.

you dont have to stay jailbroken either, if you jailbreak and enable with sb settings then restore back to unjailbroken and restore your most recent backup (taken whilst jailbroken) and it will still work. i un jailbroke due to some performance issues and hanging after finishing a call, but it kept the percentage batery which i like, but in some ways its scary how fast the battery does go down when you view as a percentage lol
