Smartphone brands around the world are flooding the market with Notch-equipped full screen phones like the Xiaomi Mi 8 or Xiaomi RedMi 6 Pro. You can hate it or love it, but it’s a fact that these notches are taking a huge amount of space away from the phones statusbar.
Most of the manufacturers had to make a decision about what to display on the small space left and they decided to remove the App Notification Icons!
Apple does not have this problem, since iOS does not feature App Notification Icons at all. But being on Android, these Icons are very important for most of the customers and there is many voices wishing them back.
Our Mod does not require any build.prop changes like ro.miui.notch = 0 !
We are updating MiUI Notch Notification Mod every week for MiUI dev and stable firmwares. In order to install this mod, you need to match the following requirements:
To activate the Notification Icons, just download and install our Center Clock Mod from the link below. It keeps the clock on the default position and only moves it a little bit to the top when a notification comes in. Icons will be displayed under the clock.
Enable Notification Icons
To show up Notification Icons on your statusbar instead of three dots MiUI has a setting called Show Notification Icons.
Xiaomi removed this setting for Notch devices !
You can still enable this setting via ADB or command line, even on non-rooted smartphones:
adb shell “settings put system status_bar_show_notification_icon 1”
There is a settings toggle switch for this option on newer ROM versions.
Go to Settings -> Notifications -> enable “Show Notification Icons” !
