    I am running location based program in iPhone. When iPhone receives a location, a small arrow next to battery icon shows. I want this arrow to not show even when location is updating.

    Remember, I am working on jailbreak iPhone.

    Any help ???

    You can't. If location services are being used, the icon has to show. It's to let the users know what's going on.

    There is a app "CleanStatus" on Cydia which does exactly that. I want to do this myself. And I don't want the users to know about this.

    And we as honest developers want to help you... why?

    It sounds to me like you're developing something nefarious (particularly given your complete lack of explaining why an end user would want such an app,) so... why?

    Most of us have paid the $100 to be registered developers with Apple and don't write apps for jailbroken devices. So most of us couldn't help even if you had a legit purpose in mind.

    Most of the developers on this forum work only with non-jailbroken devices. I think you should seek out a different forum that specializes in jailbreak programming. (I don't know where one would be, though).

    Any thief worth their salt is going to shut down the phone till it's erased. The dopey ones won't notice.
