Add that to the stupid txt and call alerts that appear on the lock screen... well I really wish it was on 4.1.2 like my old S3.
Well to combat the lock screen rubbish I rooted and used an Xposed module to disable the alerts.
Now the SMS app, does anyone know if the stock ANDROID sms app has the message icons? Or is this a samsung thing?
If the stock android hasn't got these message icons then can I remove the samsung version and install the android stock sms app? (If so where would i get it)
If not, does anyone know how to remo e the message icons? And I have tried other sms apps and don't care for them.
At least on Cyanogenmod 10.1, the icons are there as well. I would bet dollars to donuts it is on the AOSP one too (as CM wouldn't have touched too much of this app form the AOSP original).
But I can fire up my AVD's and check out AOSP for you, even look as to what version the profile photos were added.
