Add a Quick Launch Panel to Your ROM with a Smali Modification
The panel that is available when you drag down your status bar differs in almost every custom build of Android. It’s different in Sony or Samsung ROMs, not to mention AOSP and AOSP-derived ROMs. This panel is frequently used to toggle device features like WiFi, GPS, and ringer mode. Needless to say, these settings can be changed, and we don’t need Xposed Framework this time thanks to a little smali editing.
Those of you running Samsung devices may be familiary with 3Minit Mod by XDA Recognized Contributor gharrington. The developer was kind enough to share the source code with users, and now 3Minit can be used on other devices. With this modification you gain a quick launch panel, which adds a possibility of running your favorite applications directly from the notification zone.
The panel is fully customizable, and it enhances a functionality of your Android device. To test it, you need to have deodexed SystemUI.apk, which needs to be recompiled with APKTool. Gharrington prepared a package with all the smali files required to successfully add Quicklauncher settings to your ROM, so the smali modifications will be reduced to absolute minimum.
In just few seconds, you can add a powerful modification to your device—but to do that, you need to visit the original thread to get started.

Samsung hopes to break this trend with a new hardware and software design philosophy, and press details of the new-and-improved cameras shared by the S6 and S6 Edge show that they are off to a great start. Once you get past the curved displays and wraparound Gorilla Glass 4, the most striking feature on these slabs is the...
