MiUI Notch Notification Mod


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.

Along with our ROM development and the MiUI Center Clock Mod we decided to modify the MiUI firmware to bring back the App Notification Icons for Notch Phones like the Xiaomi Mi 8!

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:

  • Xiaomi Android smartphone or tablet
  • MIUI v10 ROM
  • Unlocked Bootloader (for TWRP)
  • TWRP custom recovery


Click the download-button and select your Xiaomi device from the list to get the MiUI Notch Notification Mod for your correct MiUI ROM version. You can choose from two different packages, which will let you either Install or Uninstall the mod.

  • Download the ZIP File
  • Copy the File to your phone/tablet
  • Reboot to TWRP Recovery
  • Select ‘Install ZIP from /sdcard’
  • Select the ZIP File
  • Install and Reboot

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 !

miui notch notification mod icons disabled

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” !
