Default Custom Quick Settings.

Hi Guys, I'm a long time android user, but this is my first pure AOSP, I've been on various CM roms for quite a while.

I was pretty surprised to see that I can't find a custom quick settings option (ie change how the quick settings buttons work)....

- Why would you ever have bluetooth and wifi tiles launch settings menus, rather than just toggle bluetooth / wifi on/off - really silly default option..

- would love to be able to add a torch, screen timeout & screen rotation lock tiles...

My question, is there any way to get this sort of functionality without going to a custom rom - still using the quick tiles? or is it just a matter of me not being so impatient and waiting for CM or similar to be released..

Love the idea of being able to get OTA updates.. and really to be honest, the only thing I am really missing from CM is the ability to modify the quick tiles..

If you long press a tile, it toggles that setting on off.

Awesome, thanks, at least makes bluetooth and wifi toggles more practical..

So I take it that adding extra tiles (ie say screen rotation for example) , is not an option in AOSP?

It's good to know I am not the only one feeling this one.
I was a bit shocked to see how little options there are for customization in the stock rom.
I guess I am spoiled by CyanogenMod....

Checkout widgetzoid. It is what I use for this functionality.

Here is a screen shot, very customizable and the bolt to the right is like torch.

If you want rotation lock in quick settings you have to modify SystemUI.apk and framework2.jar. If you were using stock you'd have to modify those, but using AOSP means you can just change a few lines of code and recompile.

If you want to know the exact parts to modify let me know.

Screen rotation is an option in widgetsoid. Just FYI
