Default Removing the music bar and power settings from the top slider (notification bar)

Recieved my P990 yesterday. But I cannot seem to find the right application to remove to ditch the music bar and power settings from the notification panel.

Already removed the music application etc. (trough titanium backup with root)

Does anyone know what the application is called that shows this. Or is it in the rom and can't it be removed. (which mean I have to put the music app back to make it work and ditch winamp)

That only works if you didn't remove of freezed the music app. Unfreeze, deselect the option, the musicbar is gone. Freeze or remove the app, the musicbar is there again. I've tried it many times...

Music bar is managed by the framework.

It is on by default at boot but can be turned off by the Music app. If you remove the Music app it never gets told to "turn off".

Actually, in the framework it appears really easy to totally remove this functionality but will require a patch that I've not worked on yet, and it may require to remove the actual Music app to prevent force closes.

I might have a play with that this weekend.

There's no option to turn them off as far as I can tell but I think I can also remove that permanently... I'll look at that too.

Okay, so don't try and do this.

I just bricked my phone.

I'll need to wait for a mod/update or return it. Back to my Nexus One for the weekend it seems.

No problems, have a Nexus One to go back to which is sweet.

Don't (try to) replace framework-res.apk, that's what I learned...

How the hell do you brick a phone by replacing an apk? A brick is what the word suggests; A brick, paperweight etc. Surely you could replace the apk with ADB?
