After a forced OS reinstall by a repair shop a Sony Xperia Z5 Compact started to show a NFC icon in a status bar. How to get rid of it? It does not give any information as it is always on, so it is just annoying.

  • The icon is not an option in Display / System Icons
  • Any other Xperia (even with same OS 5.1.1) does not have it, including this one before the service
  • in build.prop it is turned off by ro.nfc.icon.enable=false
  • NFC should be on, I use it, but the icon should be hidden like it was, because there is no info in showing it and clutter the status bar

  • Can't you just go into settings and turn off NFC? – acejavelin Jul 23 '16 at 19:31
  • @acejavelin Please read the Q again: NFC should be on, I use it, but the icon should be hidden :) – Izzy Jul 23 '16 at 21:41
