Re: January update (47.1.A.12.34) bug , gps icon always on

Hear thee, hear thee! Behold and enjoy! 

After not being able to show my GPS icon regardless of my actions, I finally have the hated permanent icon on top of my screen!! And of course I can't get rid of it. 

And again, swiftfreaking keyboard is acting up badly when posting on this forum. 

Thank you, Sony! 😍

1. SwiftKey does not work well with rich text editor, disable this function in account settings here. 2. No problem with GPS icon on my XZP single sim...

Reporting the same problem on Xperia X after update on androind oreo. Please fix it!

And where else should i beg for more options in "tool for debugging the user interface of the system"/"Experimental tweaks"  or what its called in english

@callofmartyif you mean Developer options, they're made by Google. as far as I know Sony doesn't add any options in there on their own.

i dont thik its the dev options. I think its called experimental somethink... you can access it by pressing and holding the settings wheel and then go to settings/system/(bottom of the screen)

you should be able to change for example the navigation bar icons or switch them from left to right and so on.... unfortunately not in xperia X :-(

@callofmarty oh, you mean System UI Tuner. well good news is, you can do that if you're feeling adventurous, with the help of a third party app and ADB connection. if you install Custom Navigation Bar, it should lead you through necessary steps to set it up properly. I use it to bring the navigation buttons closer to the center of the bar but there are more settings inside.

@callofmarty, could you please open a new thread for that navigation bar topic? This thread is about the location/GPS icon bug.

Thanks!

Question is, when? Will the March patch fix it?

Besides the GPS signal, anyone experiencing the issue that the alarm won't dismiss from the notification? I'm on 47.1.A.12.75.
