How to fix some mysterious problems.

I restored my iPod Touch and restored from iCloud backup and I didn't jailbreak it and it is showing numeral battery and if I take it to and Apple store they'll know I jailbroke it. How do I remove it? It was enabled via SBSettings

After you restored you must have also restored from backup instead of setting it up as a new device, some settings and files from the jailbreak were backed up (normal) and are now being restored from the backup, if you want a complete clean device then set it up as a new device after a restore.

There are two possible ways to change battery numerals available:

  • Adding an entry to the XXXXXX.plist file on
  • With MobileSubstrate code injection

If you restored from a backup, a tweak couldn't have been just added like that, which means you probably have an entry at your .plist file.

For changing that, use SSH/iFile/iPhone file browsers which don't require a jailbreak and navigate to /System/Library/CoreServices/, and edit a .plist file which varies from device to device. It has 6 digits being LNNAP.plist (L meaning letter, and N meaning number).

When you select that file, you should see a line <key>battery-percentage</key> or something like that, and right below a value (most likely <true/>). Just change it to <false/> and you should be done after a reboot.

without a jailbreak you have partial access to the filesystem, i think the plist are off limits.

Okay I'm going to restore and setup as new. Not even iTunes wants to sync my songs.
