    Default SGS4 Brightness notification bar is gone.

    Hello,

    I noticed today that my brightness bar disappeared. The box is checked (and was toggled several times), I've rebooted, I've removed the battery and let it sit out. It's got 90%+ battery life.I don't want to have to reset my phone because of this nuisance. This new Kitkat update has been hell, and this is just one more thing to add to the list.

    Any suggestions that doesn't require resetting?

    Thanks

    Never heard of that happening on ANY provider, after the Kit Kat Update. Can you take a screen shot?

    I am having the exact same problem and I have tried all the same "fixes" to no avail. I am also looking for a solution without having to hard reboot the device.

    My notification bar looks like this:

    My slider actually just came back. It's a weird and round-about fix, but I ran the app "Night Mode," which usually disables the slider and replaces it with a button that says "Night Mode." When I stopped the app, the slider re-appeared. Kind of freaky, but no reset required.

    Just run night mode if you have it then turn it off. Should work

    Step 4
    Tap the check box next to “Brightness Adjustment.” If the box is checked, the brightness slider will appear on your notification panel.
