My phone shows only three app notification icons in the status bar at most, but there is space for six (most of the time).

How can I increase/change the maximum number of notifications shown at once?

I don’t care if they end up overlapping with system indicators on the right.

I run CyanogenMod 7.1 (rooted, s-off, adb available, compiler as well...) and editing the source is acceptable.

    Not sure if this is possible without actually editing the Android source (CM source, etc.). – Bryan Denny Jun 1 '12 at 14:17
  • That question is a bit out of scope here, I would ask on StackOverflow.com. I've never altered the Android source, so unfortunately I can't point you in the right direction. – Bryan Denny Jun 4 '12 at 13:18
  • You would need to edit SystemUI. – R R Jun 5 '12 at 10:45

Number of icon to show on status bar depends on programmer how he wrote that status bar application code . We really can't do much here. You should be contacting customer support of developers of CyanogenMod 7.1 they might consider your request and change it to your needs.

  • Wrong. It does not solely depend on the application. – I would vote you down, if I could. – Robert Siemer Jun 2 '12 at 10:17
  • @RobertSiemer : Hey, Can I know other factors on which it depends other than application? – Sagar Jun 4 '12 at 7:04
  • The operating system itself. – On my phone, right now, two unrelated applications and their icon (WifiKeyboard and SL4A) get folded into one icon with a red circle and a “2” in it. But I was thinking last night about what I said: I would not vote you down anymore, because I’m not entirely sure if those apps indicate some “allow folding my icon”. – In the end it has to be the Android framework which does start doing so at some point. – I want to control whether it does, and at which point. – Robert Siemer Jun 4 '12 at 12:55
  • @RobertSiemer : This Statusbar code is in framework. So when I said status bar app, I meant framework and developers of CyanogenMod 7.1 can change it. – Sagar Jun 5 '12 at 7:01
