Disable New NFC Tag Popup for Empty Tags with Xposed
If you’ve played around a bit with NFC, you’ve undoubtedly received the New Tag Collected message quite a few times. Normally, this message appears when you scan an NFC tag that is either empty or contains simple text. However, sometimes this may become a nuisance, especially when you have another application performing tasks when encountering empty tags.
Thankfully, there’s an
app Xposed module by XDA Senior Member MohammadAG for that. If the name sounds familiar, it should. MohammadAG is also responsible for the fantastic NFC Unlocking app we covered a few days ago, as well as quite a few other apps we’ve featured here on the XDA Portal.
The module’s sole purpose is to remove the New Tag Collected dialog when scanning an empty tag. Installation, just like any other Xposed module, is incredibly simple. Just download, install, and activate the module. Then reboot, and you’re good to go. You will need XDA Recognized Developer rovo89‘s Xposed Framework (thread) installed, and your device must be running Android 4.1 or greater.

So this begs the question, is the M9 worth the upgrade if you already own the M8? Current HTC One M8 users chime in and let us know your thoughts.
