Unhappy with the new Internet Settings Quick Settings tile?
You can restore the old WiFi and Cellular Quick Settings tiles by running the following adb command (root required):

Edit: Seems the November update broke this, however, credit to raimondas-rimkus who has found a workaround! Post here.

Inject this setting first:
adb shell settings put global settings_provider_model false

Then run this command:
adb shell settings put secure sysui_qs_tiles "wifi,cell,$(settings get secure sysui_qs_tiles)"

Enjoy!

Pixel 4a 5G here.
Did the update to Android 12, and immediately adb'd my tiles back, worked fine.

2 days later I got the November 5 Update, now the settings are gone.
Tried again, this time without any effect. Seems like Google strengthened their grip around their users ***** (phones).

I think I managed to bypass the "fix" that was introduced in November 5 update.

The code that removes the tiles: https://cs.android.com/android/plat...temui/qs/customize/TileQueryHelper.java;l=124

This checks for "settings_provider_model" feature flag in build.props. Overriding of these flags is allowed thru Developer Options -> Feature Flags. Sadly no feature flags are shown there as of now.

BUT, we can still inject this setting:
adb shell settings put global settings_provider_model false

Now running the original adb command will work:
adb shell settings put secure sysui_qs_tiles "wifi,cell,$(settings get secure sysui_qs_tiles)"

I can confirm this worked for me.

Thanks a lot! This worked. I will update the OP with this info and give you credit :)

This worked for me but I'm pretty sure I had to edit my Quick Navigation settings to actually add the toggle to the list.

For the longest time, I thought it never worked until I saw a video about an .apk that adds the Wi-fi toggle and they said to edit the Quick Navigation settings to actually add the Wi-Fi toggle to the Quick Navigation list. :/

Hurray! Great. But I always used PowerShell for all my previous phones as well as for rooting my current Pixel 6 Pro and there were no issues.
Thank you!!!
You're welcome! Glad it's something easy. Me too (ADB/Fastboot used to work as is in PowerShell). I think Microsoft changed PowerShell enough over the last several years that made regular old commands require some extra characters typed before the commands to get them working.

Maybe it was a security enhancement to PowerShell so that if you're meaning to type a PowerShell command and there's an executable in the same folder by the same name as the PS command, then it's not accidentally running the executable instead, and makes you type extra characters since that's far less likely to be an accident.

There's also the wonderfully neat official Microsoft Terminal app in their store. You can have mix and match of Command Prompt and PowerShell in separate tabs in the same window. I think it has other features as well.

In powershell:

./adb shell settings put global settings_provider_model false

./adb shell settings put secure sysui_qs_tiles "wifi,cell,$(settings get secure sysui_qs_tiles)"
