Is there anyway that I could change the colour of the weather icon in Statusbar using Beautiful Widgets? All icons In Statusbar are white and the weather one is grey... It might sound stupid and it probably is but it would be nice if I could change it, I haven't found any options about it in the settings except for the drop down menu weather text color. I'm talking about this:
Is it possible to hide the icon (on every launcher, not a particular one) of the gallery on JB, which is the same application as the camera? i want to keep the camera icon only. I readed, but i dont remember where, that you can do something like that with some .xml editing...
I've thought there might be a shell script I could run, maybe get an app that can run shell scripts from an icon on the home screen--but I don't know what that script would need to be, since it couldn't be about killing a process because that process ID is probably going to be different every time, and I don't know if it would require root. Rooting my phone is not an option.
I'm going to assume though that there's probably no answer to this and that I'll just have to keep going in by hand to force stop the app via prefs/apps/name-of-app/force stop. I just wish these app makers would have an exit option. Twitter and Vine and Growlr are examples of these programs with this kind of behavior. Facebook as well, but that'll just reload itself when you force quit it because it's a special "system app". I mean, I'm not expecting them to exit when I just go to the home screen, that would be silly, but I'd like SOME sort of option to close them besides going through the hassle of force stopping them via the OS preferences.
I want there to be NO chance whatsoever that these programs are going to access data in some way once I'm done using them. I have no problem with whatever the programs want to do when I WANT them running, but when I'm done using them, I want to be able to quit them, and it has nothing to do with wanting to have more free memory.
Is it possible to hide just the notification icon without hiding the notification itself from pulldown?
Use case: Yahoo Weather app, the persistent notification in the pulldown is beautiful. I want it to always be there. However, the little temperature notification icon is pretty ugly, and I want to hide/disable it.
Using JB's "disable notifications" won't work since it will disable the entire notification, not just the icon.
I have a situation like this. I have a "A" app which shows on home screen. When I click this "A" app, It will show many other apps which installed or will be installed on the device. ut the problem is I only want to show these apps through the "A" app only.Is it possible?? If installing and hiding icons not possible, I can dynamically download these apps from my own cloud and load them at the request. Can anyone please guide me some ideas or something?'m so lost here and just no clue at all how to start!
I defined an application which is only used from my other application. So I would like to hide the icon of this application, so that the user can't see it on the desktop of his phone (or how do you call the thing where all apps are listed?). My manifest file looks the following way:
I already read this question: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1063604/how-to-hide-an-application-icon-in-android-emulator But if I just remove the line <category android:name="android.intent.category.DEFAULT" /> in my manifest, the activity isn't working at all (ActivityNotFoundException in the calling activity). I already tried android.intent.category.EMBEDDED but this doesn't work too. In the Internet I found CommonsWare answer http://osdir.com/ml/Android-Developers/2010-06/msg03617.html that it can be done using PackageManager. Unfortunately, it isn't explained how exactly and I couldn't find a solution by browsing the PackageManager API.

Is there any way to hide an application icon from Android applications list ? The application should be downloaded from Market and opened some GUI for configuring my application. I don't want to see any icon of my application in applications list. User should not be able to run it.
By the way I know some way:remove this line from manifest <category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" /> But it is not worked for me, because the GUI is not shown.
I forgot to unroot before hitting the OTA. Although I lost root in the process, I still have the SuperUser Permissions icon in my app tray. Is there a way to hide the icon without having to root and remove it manually?
I want to hide my application icon from main menu at the run time. I believe that a filter with category Launcher in the application's manifest file is responsible for the application's presence in the main menu. Is there any way to change the category at run time? or any other way to hide the icon from main menu?
I have had androids for over two years now and am getting more and more concerned every time I download an app and seeing that it wants to READ my SMS message and Contacts.
Is there a way I can disable reading of SMS messages or any one of the other permissions by specific apps, or all apps?
Are we living in a world where any "joe schmo" can upload an app the to the app store and wait for those inadvertent downloads and collect all your personal information, and that's after all the time we spend protecting our identity and personal details?
