Default Flashing icon in notification bar

I'm rooted stock with xposed but since I've had the phone very very quickly a dark icon will flash in the top left of the notification bar. So quickly I can't make out what it is.. Anyone else notice this? It's starting to annoy the piss out of me.

Not sure if it's the same but I have a white triangle with an exclamation point in it, every time it flashes (and it's super quick) the page I'm looking at reloads or loads a couple pages prior. It's driving me crazy!!! I'm only rooted with WeakSauce.

I'll look into Google now but I've got notifications turned off for that.

Just today I noticed it seems to do it mostly when I'm sending a text message. It flashed so many times in a row I was almost able to make it out.

Here is the icon you're seeing, it's the same one that's in the settings next to data usage, but colored. I always see it when I'm sending or receiving a text and it's annoying as hell.

No idea but I noticed it as well and it's annoying. I always know when I'm about to get a text though, because it flashes really quickly before something comes in.

Not sure if it's going to work yet or not but if you have xposed download notifyclean and you can block all notifications from "data usage". I'll post results later.

I noticed this anomaly as well; upon further research, it seems there's a notification that also flashes at the same time. I have not been able to make out its message.

Caught it. I don't like it, almost seems like your message is relayed through data...

I'm pretty sure using the method I posted above works. I haven't noticed the icon one time today.
