This reference assumes that you already know how to recompile a framework file using smali/baksmali.

You're my hero for this, steel.

Just saying.

This is something that has driven me straight up the wall. Having so many useless icons means that when I finally do get some notifications, they get pushed right off the edge. I really can only seem to fit ~4 notifications most of the time before I get the arrow.

Uh... I've never signed a .jar before. Anyone???


EDIT: I attached the services.jar I edited. It has to be signed for the phone to even boot up. Hopefully someone can sign this.

This is hot... I like it a lot. I have been looking for something like this for quiet awhile. Now to read up on smali/baksmali. I know how to edit a .jar file but there are "files" within that file.... Great... But I have to learn at least one thing a day right. If anyone has insight for me feel free to enlighten us but google search will suffice for now.

Thank you very much for posting this. This has been something bothering me since I got the device.

I have no idea how to use these tools, but I will figure them out.

EDIT: Figured it out. The steps worked! My taskbar is so clean and beautiful now!

Here are some VERY BASIC directions. Use at your own risk. They worked for me.
  1. Make a backup of your services.jar on your device (or alternatively make a nandroid backup): adb shell cp /system/framework/services.jar /system/framework/services.jar.bak
  2. Get services.jar from your device: adb pull /system/framework/services.jar .
  3. Extract classes.dex from services.jar
  4. Decompile the .dex file: java -jar baksmali.jar classes.dex -o outputdir
  5. Make desired edits to the files now in outputdir/
  6. Recompile the .dex file: java -Xmx512M -jar smali.jar outputdir/ -o classes.dex
  7. Add the new (modified) classes.dex file to the existing services.jar file (which is actually a zip file)
  8. Cross your fingers and push services.jar back to your device: adb push services.jar /system/framework/services.jar
  9. Reboot device: adb reboot
