Anyways, I noticed that there is a permanent symbol in my notification bar that is driving me crazy. Its not from any app as all the apps are stopped. It kind of looks like the Nescafe "N" symbol. I've attached a screenshot of my phone so you can see it at the top.
Does anyone know what this symbol is, what it means, and how I can remove it?
It's the NFC (Near Field Communication) icon.
To remove it two choices:
1- if you dont use NFC, go to Settings->More (under Wireless & Networks)->NFC, uncheck that
2- if you DO use NFC, use a root-enabled file explorer (eg ES File Explorer but with ROOT enabled) and go the file
change the line <item type="boolean" name="nfc_show_icon">1</item> (it's at about 15% from the top according to ES)
and change 1 to 0, save, and reboot ==> NFC still working, but no icon
