I have karbonn a9 plus smart phone. It is a dual sim phone, but I only use 1 SIM.

The second SIM signal icon with no network always shows in the notification area. I want to remove it from my notification area.

How do I do this? I have rooted my phone.

Root your phone. Install Xposed Framework and install a module for hiding the extra sim sign.

OP stated that their phone is already rooted... – t0mm13b Mar 3 '14 at 20:20
Xposed sounds like a good approach here. But which module are you referring to? A link would be helpful. Meanwhile, there are plenty of Xposed modules around, your question comes close to "install some app from Play" without telling which one to chose :) – Izzy Mar 4 '14 at 12:38
