I have a Verizon Ellipsis 7 which is rooted. I've been cleaning out the app drawer by freezing apps and using Hide App ().
The problem I'm having is that I can't seem to get the Wi-Fi icon to hide. There is no good reason to have this icon as I can easily access the wifi options by navigating from the Settings icon. I can't freeze it because it's part of Settings.apk which adds BOTH the Settings icon and Wi-Fi. I've confirmed this by just moving Settings.apk out of the apps folder and both icons disappear.
If I use Hide App and select it to hide the Wi-Fi icon then it hides Settings and the Wi-Fi icon remains.
I happen to like the launcher I am currently using and would rather not have to change it to remove this icon from the app drawer. Does anyone know a way to remove this icon?
