iPod5 - How do you show battery percentage remaining?

I have an iPod5.  I can not figure out how to show the remaining battery percentage (like you can on an iPhone).

Does anyone know how to show remaining battery percentage in the header of the home screen on an iPod 5?

Thank you.

For iPhone and iPad
Go to Settings.
Toggle 'Battery Percentage' to on.

You can see what percent the battery is at on your iPhone or iPad, but not your iPod touch.

I found this on the Apple Forum site.

1. Locally backup your iPod touch to iTunes.

2. Download and install iBackupBot Ver.5.2.3 for your computer. http://www.icopybot.com/itunes-backup-manager.htm

3. Open it and find your backup that you just made.

4. Click system files and search "springboard" OR go to "HomeDomain/Library/Preferences/" to find "com.apple.springboard.plist."

5. Open it (click cancel when message comes up) and right under <dict> add this (make sure you tab it like this)



-This means that the Battery percentage will be added and "true" means this feature will be enabled.

6. Save the file and close it.

7. Open iTunes again and restore using the backup that you edited using iBackupBot.

8. Wait a few minutes and the battery percentage should appear upon boot after completing restoration.
