Default Remove browser bar from settings?

I completely despise the fact that there is a menu option for the browser bar.

Short of changing the sku ID ( cuz I like integrated SMS/voicemail ) is there a way to get rid of that in settings?

Try to uninstall the app, or disable it? I noticed it popped up as a Play Store app which I had previously installed (ditched the AT&T stock ROM long ago): https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...er.toolbar.att

If rooted, just find the associated app, and uninstall or freeze with Titanium.

I agree the AT&T Browser Bar is awful. Takes up too much screen real estate (yeah, I know it often hidden, but still annoying as it pops up often) and has functions that are easily performed in other ways. Useless, as most of AT&T's bloat is.

Other than flashing a custom Rom, I'm afraid not. I'm stock rooted and uninstalled the app but it's still lingering in the settings menu. Clicking on it after the uninstall does nada

Did you uninstall in Settings, or with Titanium. Try freezing in Titanium.

Pretty sure it's hardcoded in the settings menu. Would be nice if sense toolbox or another xposed module removed it.
