    Every few hours I get ad notification in the upper screen about a product or service. I know this must have been one of the apps that I installed/unstalled but I cannot find which one it is. My phone is the Bionic with latest OTA.893 & rooted. Has anybody come across something similar & managed to get rid of it for good??

    You might want to try the free Airpush Detector app.

    Download AirPush Detector in the market. There are some apps that have the ability to put ads in your notification bar like that and unfortunately they don't have to notify you before the install.

    Guess someone beat me to it ^_^

    MIUI tested, mother approved.
