Sony divided notification and quick settings in 4.4, but it's not easy to use quick settings with one finger now.
I managed to show quick settings in notification tab!

SystemUI Patcher can do same thing!

1. Decompile SystemUI.apk

2. Open SystemUI.apk\res\layout\somc_tabs_status_bar_expan ded.xml, then edit
             <  android:orientation="horizontal" android:id="@android:id/tabs"  android:layout_width="fill_parent" android:layout_height="wrap_content"  />
<  android:orientation="horizontal" android:id="@android:id/tabs"  android:layout_width="fill_parent" android:layout_height="0.0dip"  />
This will hide tabs.

3. Open SystemUI.apk\res\layout\somc_quick_settings_tab.xm l and copy LinearLayout
For example (.681),
    <LinearLayout  android:orientation="vertical" android:id="@id/tools_rows"  android:layout_width="fill_parent" android:layout_height="wrap_content"  />
4. Open SystemUI.apk\res\layout\somc_notifications_tab.xml and paste "3."'s LinearLayout above
<include layout="@layout/status_bar_expanded_stylus_actions" />
For example (.681),
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<LinearLayout  android:orientation="vertical" android:id="@id/notifications_tab"  android:layout_width="fill_parent" android:layout_height="wrap_content"  android:animateLayoutChanges="false"
<LinearLayout  android:orientation="vertical" android:id="@id/tools_rows"  android:layout_width="fill_parent" android:layout_height="wrap_content"  />
    <include layout="@layout/status_bar_expanded_stylus_actions" />
5. Now quick settings should be shown on notification tab, but tiles are too big.
To make them smaller, open SystemUI.apk\res\values\dimens.xml and edit
    <dimen name="notification_panel_tools_row_height">100.0dip</dimen>
to 50.0dip or something you like.
Attached image is 50.0dip

If you want to change items per row,
open SystemUI.apk\res\values\integers.xml and edit
<integer name="config_maxToolItemsInARow">4</integer>
6. Save all and compile.

7. Install SystemUI.apk with adb or recovery, Done!

Modded SystemUI.apk for Z1 .681 deodexed can be downloaded from here (Xperia logo home ver.) (flashable)
Note this apk will not work on custom rom.

I added quick settings tile setting to SystemUI Patcher.
I have no knowledge to integrate list preference, so tiles per low is fixed to 6 at the moment
