    Hi theisonews,

    I moved your thread to the Suggestion Box and Feedback forum so the forum Admin (Phases) could see this.

    Edit: moved back. OP wanted it left here.

    push is a web script, its dependent on browser. go to settings/accessibility options and untack install web scripts

    This is not a Motion root issue.

    This belongs here in the Suggestion Box so it can receive proper attention from admin, not a copy. Sorry.

    Please tell us what pc or phone platform and browser this is happening with, thanks! :)

    this usually happens on the stock android browser, and version of android (I first noticed this on froyo on the HTC magic). it does not cause issues, but it will eat up ram as it gets bundled with the browser.

    Is your stock set to something besides the default mobile setting?

    I ask because usually that just pops up a message saying you can use an app instead of a browser.

    :thinking:

    I'll try different settings on my HTC stock browser and see if I can re-create this - thanks for the info! :)

    no, my magic was a testbed for various ROMs and the push notification has been persistent.

    the last time I saw this notification was shortly after I flashed gingeryoshi. I thought push became defunct and went out of style. I'll do a look see at the data, let you know if anything interesting shows.
