Notification-OnlyIcon

Some apps (like AFWall+) can only show their state (is the app active or inactive?) using an ongoing notification. Therefore, you can see the state of those apps as icon in the notification bar (eg, is AFWall+ active), but when you expand the notification area, you see a not really necessary notification. Especially when you have a lot of those apps, this might be annoying.

With Notification-OnlyIcon you can select those apps, and the ongoing (or all) notifications of those apps will be suppressed in the notification area, but in the notification bar, you will still be able to see the state of the app, displayed by the notification-icon. You can also force the icon to be showed in status bar instead of the notification bar.

With release 1.4, the access to notifications has been changed, to ensure compatibility with the Xposed Module XNotifications and to be able to catch and put back already posted notifications. But due to this change, the preview-phase of the notification can not be suppressed.

Notification-OnlyIcon was developed and tested on Stock Android 5.1. Furthermore, since version 1.3, it is tested on Genymotion emulator with Androd 5.0 and Android 6.0.

With the new way of access to notifications in version 1.4, the module lost it's compatibility with CyanogenMOD. CM users can use Version 1.3.

At this point, I want to add special thanks to rovo@xda-developers.com, for the xposed framework and to ceco@xda-developers.com for the GravityBox module. When it was sometimes hard to find a good entry point in the Android System-Ui, a look to ceco's open source was helpful!
