[Q] Customizing the drop down bar.
First off, I apologize if this has been covered before in a thread. I spent about a half hour searching for my answer and was not able to either find it or understand which answer I was looking for.
I have in Taiwan a:
No custom rom
(not sure what else you guys need to know)
I was simply curious if someone would point me in the right direction for the following problems. I use reverse tethering quite often with my smart phone as my office does not have WIFI and I enjoy watching sports games on my phone or listening to the radio broadcasts. I have a plan with a 5GB data limit and the video will eat that up pretty fast. So, whenever I use reverse tether, want to check for available wifi, or do any USB/Blue tooth tethering I have to go two or three menues deep into my settings and it's a tad annoying.
Is there a way I can customize the top drop down menu to replace some of the UI icons with ones that I actually want to use such as, "enable usb tether" or "see available wifi signals" or "turn on wifi hotspot?" I could remove Blocking Mode, or AllShare Cast as I never use them.
While I'm able to root phones (easy enough) I'm pretty clueless about custom Roms, how to use them, which ones are good, how to keep my phone protected when using them etc. There is such a huge amount of information about customizing the S3 on these forums, I just didn't know how to wade through it all to get the one customization that I want.
Again, sorry if I couldn't find the threat where this was discussed, and if there is a thread that answers this question well, I would appreciate someone pointing me in the right direction.
