Are there any good SGN 4G Toggle widgets yet?
Nope not yet
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.
is there a good 3g/ lte toggle widget? I cant seem to make a settings short cut.
Nope nothing yet.
Merged threads together.
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.
i m on unrooted GNex so all 2G/3G does is shortcut to network setting.
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
I found out I can enable/disable data from widgetsoid icon (its called mobile data)
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.
