So, we all know that some apps that are meant to always be running have this feature to place a constant notifcation in the statusbar which keeps the app from being killed off by Android... and now we got, in Jellybean, the possibility to hide notifcations from any app. If I do this with an app that has this enhanced priority notification running, will the app still remain "protected" from being killed? Or will the hiding of this notification result in the app being reduced back to its "regular" state?

Just wondering


Thanks,

Thanks,

Hiding will keep it protected. I tried it on CM10 JB. Installed Proximity Action, hide notification, then tried killing it with many task killers. But it wasn't killed.

This means even after hiding it is protected.
