Default Toggles in Notifications Area?

Hey all, I'm running a N1 with CM6 RC2.

I'd like to do something like this:

Note the settings toggles at the top.

Any ideas?

Thanks,
TruANT

It's not exactly what you're looking for, but try out Quick Settings. You can put a shortcut to it in the notification area, which has the same benefits with just one extra step (and less clutter, really). I'd love to have toggles in the notification area like that, too, though.

EDIT: Looks like those toggle switches in the notification window are from the Galaxy S. I doubt it's possible to do that outside of the modifications they probably made.

The Stock Vibrant has that. I think it's a pretty nice way of doing it.

@akazabam: Actually, I've been using that for a few days; you're right in that it's not exactly what i'm looking for, nor is it pretty. Thanks for the suggestion.

TouchWiz is definitely improving, but on the other hand, bugs such as not being able to customize a ringtone for google-synced contacts is unacceptable. Also, it would be great to carry that feature over to my N1 (not to mention keeping the feature on the S after flashing CM6).

I'm still holding out for a better solution.

Have you tried Quickdesk? That works well for quickly accessible toggles (and any other widget, for that matter). It does seem to slow the phone down a little bit, though.

I never even realized it did that. Thanks!

You said it, it slows the phone down too much for my taste. Another great find though.

It's only for wifi, but I use Status Toggle which puts a wifi on/off switch in my taskbar. I often times would be in the middle of an app DL from the market or viewing a page on the web, and would realize it was taking too long, or running slowly.

So I'd have to hit home, go over to my power bar widget and turn on wifi, then go back to what I was doing. With this, I can just pull down the status bar and hit wifi on or off while staying in the program I'm using.
