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.

Dual Boot on Android: A Power User’s Holy Grail?

Many of you probably dual-boot your personal computers, be it to run Linux alongside Windows or because you have a Mac and hate OS X. On a computer platform, the process can be a life-saver for a variety of reasons, particularly software compatibility/integration.
