    Which version did you install because I have the Mobster Remix and I still have that very annoying location icon.

    And are you or were you S-ON or S-OFF?

    I have a modified systemui.apk that will remove the icon if you still want it.

    Pm me and I can send you a link


    With an app like root browser light:

    Navigate to system/app
    Find systemui.apk and replace it with the modified one.
    Set permissions to rw-r--r--
    Set ownership both to 'root'
    Reboot

    Your location icon will be gone

    Enjoy

    Edit: all you need is root access to do this
