    Default How do you customize the settings buttons in the notification bar on the Nexus 4?

    While I like the settings buttons that are currently in the notification area (Brightness, Battery, Airplane mode, Bluetooth etc.), I would like to add more settings buttons there.

    In particular I would like to add Screen Rotation toggle, Sounds and a couple of others. Is there a way to do this?

    Download Power Toggle from the play stores.

    Thanks for the tip. Is that the only way to customize the settings button in the notification bar...through a 3rd party app? There is no native solution?

    There is a mod, but you have to be rooted. I used it on 4.3W and have tested it on 4.3Y and it works.

    It's worth it, Power Toggles is pretty sharp.

    If you choose not to do the customization and opt for a third party enhancement, Widgetsoid is another really good option apart from Power Toggles.

    +1 on Widgetsoid. I used it on my Gnex, never had a problem.

    Unless something has changed, the sad truth about these tools (Power Toggles, Widgetsoid, and the like) is that they are incapable of doing so many of the things that you might want to do with them. Recent versions of Android OS have made it impossible (without root) for such tools to directly toggle Airplane mode, for example.

    Are there any links supporting 4.4 for customization ?
