AOSP Status Bar Toggles on Xperias Running 4.2 with Xposed

With the latest Android 4.2 update for the few Xperia devices in the last couple of months, came a much welcomed enhancement to the otherwise lackluster status bar toggles. Rather than restricting users to the inadequate four default toggles, Sony has loosened the reins by allowing up to 15 toggles to be added, removed, and rearranged. The most obvious problem with this, however, is the clutter that inevitably spawns from the combination of multiple rows of toggles and a couple of ongoing notifications.

It’s probably one of the reasons why XDA Senior Member MohammadAG created an Xposed module for the Xperia Z1, replacing these toggles with AOSP ones. That means out with the clutter, and in with the individual panels for the notifications and suite of toggles. As a cherry on top, the new set up is entirely compatible with the popular Gravity Box Xposed module and its whole variety of customization options, so you don’t have to miss out on whatever personalization you had previously with your status bar and toggles.

The module has also been reported to work with various other Xperia devices running Android 4.2 with the default Sony firmware, including the Xperia Z and ZL. The other requirement is to have XDA Recognized Developer rovo89‘s Xposed Framework up and running.

Arrow Launcher: Good Effort Without Direction

Microsoft’s Android expansion has been well received on the productivity front, but not so much in terms of original applications. While their Office suite managed to bring some of the document-editing excellence to mobile, attempts at entering one’s interface through apps like Picturesque proved to be pointless failures. But even then, some apps like Hyperlapse redeem the computing giant through great quality. Microsoft seems to be approaching Android with brute, misdirected development and plenty of unorganized output, and if they want...
