Android 4.2-Style Quick Settings on All Android Versions
In the the 4.2 update to Jelly Bean, Google brought a very useful feature to stock Android that has been available in several custom ROMs for quite a while now: quick settings controls in the notification shade.

You can access 16 different settings including WiFi, Bluetooth, Sound, Vibrate, Auto-Brightness, Auto Rotation, Screen Stay On, Sound Effect, Haptic Feedback, Dial Tone, Screen Timeout, Ringtone, Volume, Ring Mode, and Brightness Level.

You can learn more about the app in the original thread.
