The Samsung ATIV S is a thoroughly rooted Windows Phone, so it is no surprise the handset has been the subject of numerous hacks.
The latest is to bring the new and elusive network activity indicator, which will only be available on some carriers with Lumia Black, to the handset.
It turns out it only takes a simple Registry Edit to activate the feature.
- In HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINES
- Enter Software \ Microsoft \ Shell \ OEM \ SystemTray
- Enter DataActivity
- Read, type a new value of 1 and save
I suspect the openness to being hacked will ensure the longevity of the handset long after most Lumia 920’s are retired.
