The ICS notification allows users to "swipe" single notifications away. I was wondering if this can be done on a rooted Gingerbread phone?


On a stock carrier/manufacturer's ROM there's probably not a whole lot you can do I would imagine, but CyanogenMod 7 (its Gingerbread-based version) allows you to dismiss individual notifications by swiping them away. You can see it in action in this Lifehacker article.

  • Are there any 3rd party apps or mods that will allow me to do that on the Xperia GB rom? – Propeller Jul 10 '12 at 17:57
  • @ShedoSurashu: I've never seen one (although that doesn't mean one does not exist somewhere). Re-working the notification bar's behavior is somewhat non-trivial, though, and AFAIK it's not really possible without modifying the Android source. – eldarerathis Jul 10 '12 at 17:59

There is a mod for this by, I think, TeamNocturnal...I have it working on Stock gb 2.3.5 for ZTE Merit. Google search "swipe to clear notifications mod."
