Lightbulb [Q] Disable Ticker Animation (Notification Privacy)

I am talking about Paranoid Android's very useful tweak. The "Do Not Disturb" option in settings menu where it completely disables the ticker animation whenever there's a notification.

This is a great tweak for me because whenever a friend borrows my phone to browse the web or to send an sms, he/she sees the COMPLETE incoming text thru the ticker animation. This is really an annoying accidental invasion of my privacy.

"So why don't you just use paranoid android rom?"
Well, because that mod is the only reason i was able to stick to that rom for almost 2 weeks.
I am more than willing to create a custom rom that suits my exact preferences but i lack the time and skills to do it.

Okay so i've searched EVERYWHERE (trust me) but i can't find an individual mod that does exactly this.

Thanks for reading and I am very grateful if anyone answers.

Does it only affect SMS/MMS? If so, the mod can probably be cleanly packaged into a modded mms.apk and the setting option/toggle moved from PA settings to mms settings. Can't say, never used it, but someone with time on their hand can probably track it in the PA git.
Please press THANKS if someone helps you!

It affects all ticker animations that pop up on the status bar whenever there's a notification.
For example, when i turn the feature on and i use titanium backup to do a batch restore, the icon is still there but there will be no ticker animation.
It's quite redundant if you ask me.

Still no luck? I am searching everywhere, like you, but I can't find a mod for this. It is found in Cataclysm rom, but I can't understand why this is not asked for more. Every rom should have a preference to disable all notification tickers.

I learned to accept the fact that noone will make a stand-alone mod (or even an app) for this specific feature.
