Default [Q] How do you get rid of all the extra persistent icons in the bottom bar area?

I have persistent ones for my two memory cards, plus the dock and keyboard notifications. Add to that the dual battery indicators, when docked, and it takes up a ton of space. I'll get a few emails from different email accounts, and a few auto app updates notifications, and the bottom bar is almost completely populated.

Anybody know if there's a way to get rid of these memory card and docked notifications, once they first appear? You should be allowed to just acknowledge the notification, and it would go hidden... Is that possible??

Thanks in advance!

i've tried to get the one for the sd card to go away but i dont think you can, it's so stupid, you can feel the sd card sticking out it's not like you need something constantly reminding you and i didn't know it did it for the dock why does it have to tell you that it's pretty obvious if you ask me.

I could be wrong but I think it is a rom thing. I remember from flashing Roms on my Gtablet that one of the devs removed the annoying reminder about the sd card. So we can hope that a dev can chime in and it could be done.

yea it's rom based, so you'd need a custom rom that removes that tweak
