Question Odd icon in top status bar

Since the last reboot, my (softrooted) Nook Wi-Fi shows an odd symbol on the status bar at the top (to the left of the Wi-Fi and airplane mode icons) which I've never seen there before and which is not documented in the manual. It looks like a pictogram of a Nook being shaken.

Anyone any idea what the heck this might be?!

Alright, according to this overview of Android status icons, it means vibration mode is enabled. Eh?!

Now, of course there is no vibration hardware, and no reason for one to be there. Any idea how this may have been enabled, and how I can disable it?

If I were to do a "hard" reset (pressing the power button for 20+ seconds), do any settings get lost? If so, which ones, and is it advised to unregister the Nook first and re-register after? - Update: Did so, no effect.

Solved!

In the Android settings database, "mode_ringer" was set to 1 but defaults to 2. After various other things I tried, this (plus a reset) made the icon disappear.
