Hey guys,


I've been trying to figure out why the NFC icon is missing from the status bar. NFC is turned on in Settings and Quick Settings; but the icon isn't present on the statusbar.

I checked NFC, and it worked when I tried to pair my SmartBand and my M8.

I haven't tried restoring the phone, but I have serious doubts that would fix (this is the last resort).

Any suggestion so far?

I'm unrooted, and I haven't unlock my bootloader.

Have you accidently pressed "hide NFC icon" in the settings?
Never mind you can't hide NFC.

Certain versions of FW don't display the NFC icon by default even though its activated.

You have 2 options;

Flash a FW with the NFC icon displayed, or

Root the phone and modify the buildprop to show the NFC icon.
