Hello Guys! Today i present to you a mod that i made. A lot of users had been complaining about the Sim Icon in the status bar of Galaxy S duos.
Well this mod is made to remove that.
So lets get to the guide straight away.
This has been made on my device running XXBMD4 i have not tested this on any other version so install on your own risk.
This is based on the STOCK XXBDM4
I am not responsible if anything happens to your device after installing this.
This is similar to what has been implemented in cosmic ROM but i have not stolen it from there.
Step 1:
Go to and download the SystemUI.apk
Step 2:
Transfer the file to your S duos.
Step 3:
Using and file manger (i prefer root browser) move the file to /system
Step 4:
Edit the permissions to rw-r--r-- (as shown below)
Step 5:
After the permissions have been changed move the file to /system/app
Step 6:
Enjoy and hit thanks if i helped you
Special thanks to

PS in the photos i am using an xposed mod called tinted status bar. But this mod works even without the module.

That is because you are using a different firmware/ROM than this is meant for.
Reflash the ROM or if you have a backup of the original systemui then use that!
