    Hello there,

    today a strange icon started to show up in the notification area. It has no notification attached to it, restarting the device doesn't make it go away and neither am I aware of any app installed that could have caused this. Due to the resemblance the icon bears to the ICS logo, I thought it might be some system-based event (something like an android anniversary date or whatnot), yet it persisted through GMT midnight, which makes it seems less likely then it did when I found out. I tried an image-based search for any images and screenshots containing the said icon, but came out empty-handed. Do you have any clues / ideas as to what the cause could be?

    EDIT: Problem solved! As Henzman said, it's the new icon of the Power Toggles app.

    Never seen that before but it really does bear a very strong resemblance to the UCS android.... What carrier do you have your service through?

    Hello friends! I am new here as well.

    My Note too showing this icon started this morning. Weird. I hope it is some kind of the way they telling us a new Updates (JB!) is on the way!

    But, to anyone who really knows what this is all about, please do help.

    Thanks.

    Finally found out what the icon is all about.

    It's the new icon for Power Toggles app. I think it detected what Android version we are on.

    Problem solved.
