    Hello,

    Since the firmware update a few weeks ago, my two persistent apps (Tasker and Twilight) keep appearing in the status bar and/or the notification pull down panel after every phone restart, despite the fact that I have disabled 'show notifications' in the Application Manager section. I have to disable them each time after restart by selecting 'show notifications' and then deselecting it immediately afterwards.

    Thanks chaps!

    That sucks :(. Is it still intentional however that the phone honours my request to disable notifications only until I restart the phone? That does not seem right to me.

    This was a change made by Google for security reasons, but if you root your phone then it remembers the settings.

    The good news is that this problem goes away with KitKat 4.4 :)

    I can confirm it. My boyfriend and I both have the S4, but mine is rooted with a custom rom so that feature works. My boyfriends S4 is not rooted, stock, and running pure Android 4.4. I just tested the Roundr app by disabling Show Notifications. Turned off the phone and turned it back on. No notification showing. It use to show up on the notification pulldown but now it doesn't. :)

    ^^^ there ya go!
    My comment was based on personal observation with a Nexus 7. Problem existed with 4.3 (same as on the S4), but it's back to the 4.2.2 behavior (yay!) with 4.4.
