Hi, I was able to remove that silly spen icon in the notification bar in 4.3 by using quick shortcut maker and finding the page or site buddy. After upgrading to 4.4.2 that icon returned. Furthermore the page buddy crashes at once it is called.

How can I get rid of this silly spen icon in 4.4.2? Any ideas?

Just put some electrical tape over the top corner of the screen so you can't see it.

SPen icon is there to remind you that you have detach your SPen from the phone. It is easy to get distracted in busy world, and that litle thing is there for that one specific helpful reason.

Are you trying to be funny or sarcastic ?

I dint think you're either.

If you haven't got anything sensible to say... Don't say anything.

Do a factory reset if page buddy keeps crashing - OR remove it via Titanium backup and have someone give you the files and push them into the system (this might not work though)

Just go to settings/General/app manager/all/pagebuddy (click) and untick notifications.

The Wacom digitizer uses battery. I want my indicator in case I set the pen down and continued using my phone. The pen insertion/removal sensor is more about activating/deactivating the Wacom digitizer than it is about warning keeping track of your pen and the symbol helps too.

You're working on the misconception that the Wacom digitizer is switched on/off depending on whether or not the sPen is inserted.

It isn't. Try using a different Wacom pen on your screen with the Note's pen still inserted. You will find it still works fine.

Regards,

Dave
