Update 31/03: Works with all 2.2.2 ROM's, including the awesome MoDaCo kitchen!
For me the notification controls for the music player are an admirable idea but ultimately useless if you don't prefer the stock music player. It would be ideal if any music player could hook into them but alas, with the current implementation that's not possible.
I found the option to turn these controls off in the Music app to be utterly unreliable. Frequently I would reboot to find the controls visible even though the option was unchecked in the Music app. I also found that if you freeze or remove the Music app the controls become visible again and there is no way to remove them.
So here's the fix:
- Modified framework
- Actively hides the controls every boot
- Music app can be removed, controls remain hidden
All I have done is add the following code to framework-res.apk/res/layout/statusbar_expanded.xml in the music controls section.
Only tested on P990 with Android 2.2.2!
