    Here's a repeat of my Lounge post -

    I may be able to help here as I did there if the issue is the same.

    Let me know.

    Nothing yet but you CAN get a widget that'll bring you right to the "mobile network settings" screen, which saves a few steps/seconds.

    LTE Switch seems to work (for me)....until something is developed to toggle it in widget

    Liquid Smooth 3.X by R3D offered a 4G toggle in the notification bar on my Thunderbolt. That is the only thing i REALLY miss about it.

    i sure hope a dev will cook this functionality into a custom GNex ROM soon. at least we know it's possible!

    This is the one thing I really miss from my HTC. Having a widget on the home screen to toggle mobile network on/off really helped me to conserve battery life. Hopefully something gets developed for the GNex soon because navigating through all the screens becomes a pain in the ass after a while.

    just wondering if there was any progress on this front?
    I'm fortunate that most of the areas I'm in during the day are 4G but on the off chance I want to turn it off, it would be nice to have a widget

    There are options if you're rooted. If not, I don't think there is any current widget that functions.

    That 4G widget only works on rooted, custom ROM's unfortunately.

    I've been using "4G toggle for Razr" from the market. Its not a real toggle though. More like a shortcut to the setting screen but like foo said, it saves a few steps.

    I'd love a toggle switch for rooted, non custom ROM devices.
    I wonder if google will just give us a widget with an update.

    Are you saying the 2G/3G toggle in widgetsoid toggles 3G/4G? I didn't see a 4G toggle in widgetsoid back when I fiddled with it.

    You can use the free app anycut to open up a shortcut to the mobile data settings, then it's just one or two taps to enable/disable data or switch off 4G

    that is different than what the OP wants....that just disables data all together.

    for a non stock option, widgetsoid or a shortcut to mobile networks is your best bet.

    if you are rooted and are comfortable with ROM'ing, i just flashed AOKP and put a LTE toggle in the notification bar, and it works just fine. took about 15 seconds to connect to 3g, but it worked. switching back to 4g was quick though.
