the one next to my WiFi signal. Never seen it before.
can you pull down the notification bar and check it?
Never seen that one before, but I'd guess something to do with location services or GPS..
Nothing shows up in the notification bar about it?
That must be a service provider icon, because it doesn't look like an HTC icon.
It says nothing in the notification menu, I see it all the time so I'm a little bit concerned as to what it does. Some of you say location services, but for what? :/
I'm sure someone in Xda forums could find it in the system dump of the phone you have...assuming it's a system icon.
I say location because it looks like the GPS icon with double lines wrapped around it...completely guessing tho.
Found out what it is. It is the 'boom sound' indicator.
I believe that's the icon for boom sound.
Ah I see! It's funny because I swear Iv seen that come up even when not listening to anything. Strange.
Anyway thanks for informing me guys
What the hell is boom sound and why does it need an icon?
I would have guessed it was location services/GPS as it kind of looks like that on other systems.
Boom sound is an HTC term for their dual front stereo speakers. Doesn't really mean anything, kind of like Apple coining the term 'Retina Display'. Doesn't mean a thing.
And no idea why in the hell HTC needs a status bar icon for it?
BoomSound is an equalizer, it can't be disabled using the internal speakers. If you plug in headphones and play music by default you'll see the BoomSound icon on top but if you disable BoomSound in settings with headphones plugged in, the icon will go away too. You'll notice the sound signature change as well.
Can't you just go into app settings and untick "Show notifications" for it?
Don't think so, it's not technically an "app". It's kinda just part of Sense.
