    I'm running a rooted S3 on VZW with LiquidSmooth JB v2.7 recently flashed. Upon restarting the first time, I've got a silly blue circle that hangs out on the edge of the screen. Touching it moves it completely onto the screen, where a long press and drag does something but I can't easily explain what. What is this thing? It's transparent and visible over the home screen *and* application screens. I want to remove it, but don't see what it's tied to. Any suggestions?

    Nothing happens when I press it. Originally, I think it launched an application (there used to be an icon on it) and I somehow randomly changed the icon and now it's gone altogether. I just want it gone!

    That's halo. Double click it and hold, drag it up and delete it.

    ^ Thanks! You've restored my sanity. I'd have never thought to double click and hold. I appreciate you taking the time to help. Now I'll go learn something about halo.
