I've been doing some searching around the web and haven't been able to find a fix for this yet. I flashed the latest Jelly Bean leak last night and noticed that the circle notifications on the lockscreen are gone (the ones for missed calls/new messages). I saw a fix for the Galaxy Note II that involved changing a file name and that would bring those back. Is there any way to bring them back on the S3?

Simple fix. You need a File Explorer app that has Root permissions, access to Root directory, and can mount System files as writable (I recommend ES File Explorer).

In you file explorer, navigate to "/system/csc/" and rename "customer xml" to "customer xml.bak".

Restart your phone. The Lock icon and "verizon wireless" text will be gone from your lockscreen, and the bubble notifications will be back.

Did you restart your device afterwards? It is working just fine for me right now on CleanRom5.

I'm not sure what you guys are doing, but this solution definitely works and has been done by hundreds of people successfully.

My guess is that you don't have the proper root permissions to change the file name (it's a system file). Do it using ES File Explorer. Go into the ES File Explorer settings, go into the Root Settings, and check all of the boxes. Then rename the file. It works on CleanRom 5, I am 100% positive of that.

I have no yet flashed CleanRom5.5, but I am 99% positive this same solution will work on that as well.

I've used root explorer in ROM toolbox and ES both. I've followed the steps outlined above, doublechecked that the rename took and rebooted several times. And this is the results.

This worked for me on Stock-Rooted. Thank you.

Your using aosp msg app. Or gosms. I'm unsure but the looks of your screen shot that's the problem. You have to be using the tw mms app. Hope that helps :thumbup:

Yes, the bubble notifications ONLY work with the TouchWIZ messaging and dialer apps.
