HTC Droid Eris : Can't Find A Duplication Of Icon In Notification Area
Apr 17, 2010
I hate posting a query about something so seemingly simple. I googled around and can't find a duplication of the icon in the notification area of my new (since January) Eris running 1.5 stock.
I'll describe it: it in most ways resembles a little musical note, perhaps an eighth-note, but with a diagonal slash through it (not in a circle as the "no" sign).
Nothing running in the background, music-wise. On page 47 of the user guide/manual is a list of all stock icons; it is not there. No new apps have been installed for weeks.Any ideas as to what it could be?
today a strange icon started to show up in the notification area. It has no notification attached to it, restarting the device doesn't make it go away and neither am I aware of any app installed that could have caused this. Due to the resemblance the icon bears to the ICS logo, I thought it might be some system-based event (something like an android anniversary date or whatnot), yet it persisted through GMT midnight, which makes it seems less likely then it did when I found out. I tried an image-based search for any images and screenshots containing the said icon, but came out empty-handed. As Henzman said, it's the new icon of the Power Toggles app.
I cannot figure out what the 1st icon in the notification area is for and it is using up serious battery usage.No new apps were downloaded, the phone was in a pocket and the icon appeared and I cannot figure this out.
I got my Eris 2 days ago. I updated to 2.1 yesterday, using the update function. I notice there is a new notification? icon in the top bar. It never appeared before the update. I looked through the manual both for 1.5 and 2.1 and it is not listed. It looks like an over the ear earpiece facing to the right, with an arc next to it like the satellite icon has when it is connected.
Is there anyway to clear the New Voicemail Icon from the notification bar w/o actually Checking the voicemail? It doesn't seem to go away for me when I hit clear notfications lol..... IDK why but having notfications on my screen of any phone i've had has bothered me immensly... and I hate checking my voicemail for one message I kno I will be deleting in the 1st 2 seconds of listening too it
i have a Gmail account setup with a pop account tied to my Gmail. on my phone I only have the Gmail account. It does show an @ sign when i get pop mail via Gmail however it doesn't show up as a number on the mail icon. only when i get a true Gmail email does it show up as a number on the icon. once i go into mail and preview the email (pop) it will show as a number on the icon. any ideas?
I wanna know if there's anyway to get rid of that annoying little icon that appears in the notification line every hour or so. It's the one that's telling you that there's new updates for you contacts/facebook friends. But, this notification is extremely slow so I see that theres updates on contacts that I saw in the news feed hours ago. Now I do have majority of my contacts synced with facebook obviously and I don't wish to unsynce them. So is there a setting to get rid of that icon?
I have following queries. How can I display icon in Signal Area(what it is called?) ? Like default audio player when playback is on and u press HOME or BACK at last screen of audio player, Play icon is displayed in that areA? Kind of minimize application. How to display shortcut of media player? the minimal version of media player in that area
I recently switched from sense to home and I have a little problem.My email and messages icons dont have the notification icon when I receive my emails.Usually if you have two or three new emails it says so on the icon, well im not getting this.I am getting the notification icon up the task bar, but not on the icon.What to do?
The GPS icon is now always on my notification area. This has only been happening for the past couple of days. Previously, it would come on when in use (e.g. using Google Maps or some other application that was using the GPS) and then would disappear when the application terminated.
I used Taskiller to terminate all running applications, but the GPS icon was still on after I killed ALL of the running applications. So, I'm assuming that it's not because of a new, or updated, application I installed.
It doesn't appear to be causing any problems, but wonder if it's really on and draining the battery more than necessary. Also, it was a reminder to me that I'd left an application running that was using the GPS.
Just a quick question, is there a way, with out installing a theme or Home replacement, to remove the text under the icons, so its just an icon only? also, is there a way to hide the notification area? I thought it would be cool to tap the screen once, and have the batter/time/date/notification area drop down from the top like how it is right now with the stock version, then tap the screen again and it hides the notification area. Wouldn't that be cool? Any way to do this or does something do this already?
Works nicely for my X. I just downloaded about 8 gigs of my music. It sync'd my videos also. Works well, but you have to select what you want to sync in the settings. Took me a while to figure it out. Also, if you try to sync a DRM protected MP3, the X gets cranky and kind of freezes up and displays a get license in the notification area.
The screen is great and it is the fastest android phone i have used to date. I was a bit worried about the Samsung ui but it is integrated very nicely. I cannot find the menu area to see what the actual processor is.
In my application I use an image . I made some portion of the image transparent. Now How can I find the co-ordinates of the transparent portion of the image so that I am able to find the actual area of the non-transparent area.. I want some methodical way to find.
I know that I can get some informations from the Sim card by using the TelephonyManager class, but I couldn't find any specific method to get its country and area code, and also if the user is on roaming the area code would probably change to the location he currently is.

I am using folder organizer which I love, but the stock icons it comes with leave much to be desired.I have been through the market and can't find any decent high resolution icon packs. I would even be happy with just stock android icons. Is there a way to use just the icons from themes?
I had reception issues on my Legend so vodafone sent me a new (well, pre-owned/refurbished) one today. I haven't had it long enough to test the reception issues but I am unable to bring the notification area at the top of the screen down by swiping my finger. I can click 'menu>notifications' from the homescreen and that brings it up but I can't swipe it down - most odd. Although I have seen it come down about 30 seconds after I swipe it on occasion. This was the case with the old firmware and still is with the new. I've done soft and hard resets and it's still the case. Everything else on the phone works perfectly as far as I can see.
Does anyone know of an app that achieves the display of recently used apps in the notification dropdown area?Essentially, performing the same function that a long press on the home button does, but obviously eliminating the need to press a button. I've been looking for something like this for a good while, and was pleasantly surprised to see HTC had included this very function in their latest version of Sense.... when I went to the HTC London meet last week. unfortunately, the HTC guys demoing informed me there is currently no way to obtain this feature for current handsets.
I live in an area where there is solid EVDO coverage yet my Hero doesnt display the 'EV' over the signal bars like it says it should according to the manual. My old Pre would tell me if I was on Sprint's EVDO network or 1x. Am I missing something?
Also, I constantly have a symbol of a satellite dish with flashing incoming network waves on my notification area even though I have turned off GPS and location services. I can't find anything about this symbol in the manual. anyone know what this is?
I have the date in status bar and work fine (see bellow). Done by edited my systemui.apk by my self (decompile, edited, recompile�). Now, also in modify systemui, I want to remove header in notification area (pink cercle in screenshot bellow). With resize or delete the header. I need to know what values to modify in systemui..
I am using micromax a116.. I want to know if there any mod or tweak, that can be used to change the appearance of notification area.. Its not so attarctive as in samsungz galaxy phones.. So I just want to change its looks..
