Hey everyone, I have two favourite ROMs on these forums but I've had an annoying problem with both. It's SickSense and Nocturnal. When I install these ROMs there's always a 4G icon regardless of my current connection. If I'm on Wifi, there's still an annoying 4G icon. I've flashed the Stock System UI and it's still there.

Does anyone know how to get rid of the constant 4G icon?

It's because the rom is at&t based, if you can find the gsm patch from pre 4.x cleanrom you can flash that to get rid of it.

I know this may seem like asking a lot but I can not find a link to it anywhere, not even in the thread
Could.someone please link me?

I think Cleanrom removed the gsm patch from his build due to issues sinde he deoxed the latest, so buggy or something.

Download the cleanrom 3 and unzip it, there is a cleanrom sdcard folder where the extras are located you can grab it from there i think.

I'm waiting.

I'm on the Telstra One XL, same issues, because our network goes 3g / Next G / 4g, with NextG sort of being the equivalent of your 4g, and 4g being the equivalent of your LTE. Poor thing doesn't have a clue what to do. I got stuck into the systemui.apk last night and had a look, but the work involved swapping the icons out and getting the xml right on a few glasses of port looked a bit daunting. I'm just gonna stick it out.

More annoyingly for the Telstra phone, we have an option in connections called Network Mode which enables us to hop from LTE (4g) back to NextG very easily, none of the custom roms have it.
