    I just got the S3 after switching from my nexus, I absolutly hate this feature. I use my own widgets and would like to remove this. Is it possible without rooting?

    Please see attached picture.

    I think you will be able to do this in the new 4.1.2 update when this is available for your phone/carrier but until then I think we're stuck unless rooted

    I can't see the picture but are you talking about the notification area toggles? If so, you can't.

    In 4.1.2 you can change what you have there but there aren't many options and must have a minimum of 5.

    With root, the mod "23 toggles" is much better but that's not the answer you were looking for

    Thank you for your response. Looks like I'm going to root.

    Before you do, fyi I haven't seen a mod that completely removes the toggles so do research this first. With 23 toggles mod in some international roms, you can Deselect all toggles but then you still end up with blank, unusable space
