A popular and prominent developer within the jailbreak community has created and made available for download a tweak called BatteryPercentX. The tweak, which is intended for iPhone X users, is compatible with the latest Electra Jailbreak Toolkit for iOS 11.1.2 and instantly brings the battery percentage back on iPhone X status bar at all the times.

You may or may not know but there was a little bit of an outbreak of emotion when users purchased Apple’s iPhone X last year only to find out that the integration of the infamous notch meant that there was no available screen real estate for the battery percentage to show at all times.

We really only got an idea of how many device owners actually preferred to see the remaining battery represented in numbers rather than the battery icon, when the feature was taken away by Apple to preserve space. Invoking Control Center on iPhone X still shows the battery percentage, but, for some users, that was one action too many when the information was previously visible at a glance.

BatteryPercentX is one developer’s solution to that problem and is now readily available for 64-bit device owners who have liberated their devices using CoolStar’s Electra Jailbreak Toolkit.

Anyone who has used Electra will already know that it doesn’t go through a full Cydia installation, meaning that tweaks aren’t available through that mechanism. Instead, SparkDev has made the Debian file for BatteryPercentX available through his free-to-join, member-only repository, meaning those with an iPhone X who are interested in the tweak can download that file and go through the manual installation process.

Once installed, the battery percentage will be instantly shown on the right-hand side of the status bar, to the right of the notch, and right next to the WiFi or cellular data indicator. It means that iPhone X owners no longer have to look at the fill-level of the battery icon and try to come up with the best guess on how much battery is actually left. Or, of course, they don’t have to manually invoke Control Center to see the battery expressed as a percentage.

If you have iPhone X, are jailbroken with Electra on iOS 11.1.2, have the necessary knowledge and skill to manually install packages of this nature, then you can head on over to the developer’s repository at member.sparkservers.co.uk/login and sign up right now to download the tweak.
