    does anyboody know where the location icon (pointed out in pic) is located?
    i cant seem to find it in any of the res folders.
    i want to get rid of it without having to turn location off, or even make it alot smaller

    "you have to edit /system/framework/services.jar and set the width to zero."
    I looked it up a bit and that's what I got. I might work, but then again it was for another phone so idk.

    What you want to do is move the gps all the way to the left using my guide to rearrange icons on the ATR, then replace the gps png with a clear png

    If you just delete it it will give you the same effect. At least it did for me.

    @op Just make a backup first :)

    i got backups for days :)
    deleting the png will just leave a blank spot, plus i like the center clock mod also.
    i know its blasphemy but im kinda going for the iphone status bar..moving signal bars all the way to left, battery on right, might change the location icon to something that just has my name or "mpcs"
    i just like the status bar to look clean, i hate when it gets cluttered up with all these different sized icons

    Sorry I should have clarified. I deleted the pngs and then moved them around so the non existent pngs were all the way to the left using superusers guide
