    I have a Samsung S4 mini. Reasonably good phone, fits my needs....But I hate the quick settings on the notification area. Is there a way to remove these?

    - I can root the phone, then what? I want to keep the manufacturers rom, and do not want to load another launcher, etc.

    So if anyone knows exactly how to do this, pls replay with a step by step method to get rid of these annoying toggles.

    You can only set a minimum (5), you can't have none without rooting. Go to settings>device>notification panel. Incidentally swiping down with two separated fingers displays them all.

    I understand you don't like or want them, I'm just curious why? I find them most useful.

    I find them useless, I set my phone one way, and leave it alone.

    I dont mind rooting the phone, but im looking for a step by step cookbook to remove the quick settings

    Thank you Dyno!

    That is not quite what I'm looking for, as I'm looking for a step by step as if you were telling a 2 years old, also I'm not looking to install anything else, but exactly the opposite.

    I don't think you can without installing xposed or another ROM and you do not want to do either so.....

    It can't be disabled unless you root. So basically, since you don't want that, it means you can't.

    I don't have a problem rooting, my question is as follows: once I root the phone, what steps do I take to disable or hide quick settings?

    I do not want to install something on top of the of
    OS or the launcher, since the more stuff that it's installed the bigger probability that something goes haywire.

    So if you have a way to do this without installing a framework like xposed or anything like that, by all means I'm interested.

    This guide is for the s III mini, but the instructions should be similar or exactly the same.


    To follow this guide you will need to have basic knowledge of adb and apktool. There isn't going to be a setting to simply turn them off. you will either have to use xposed (as noted above) or manually remove/edit the lines of code that tell the phone to display the quick settings

    Vincent to the rescue!!

    I have experience with ADB & I can see that they are hiding rather then removing the quick settings.

    Thank you Vincent
