    Hi All,

    I was wondering if there was a way of removing or hiding some of the icons on the Right hand side of the Status Bar?:thinking:

    I currently have: Bluetooth, Wifi, Vibrate, Signal, Battery, Alarm & Clock.

    As you can imagine this means thta there isn't a huge anmount of space left on the status bar and as soon as I get more than 2 Notifications on the Left hand side they all 'Group' together.

    Thanks in Advance

    The only way to do so is to turn off the associated services. I recommend you keep wifi and bluetooth off until you need them as all they can do is waste battery (and status bar room)

    Hi,

    Unfortunately that doesn't help with I am streaming Web Radio over a Bluetooth stereo headset.

    If it isn't possible then it is a pain :(

    Oh well.

    Actually you can do this if you are rooted and running 2.1 or 2.2 android. It takes a bit of ADB skills to extract the appropriate files and then recompile accordingly. I have successfully removed Clock, Battery and Alarm from the right side of the notification bar. XDA has many forums on this very process. You need to be rooted tho.
