Galaxy Nexus: how to get fast and any Quick Settings Widget Lockscreen

Galaxy Nexus: how to get fast and any Quick Settings Widget Lockscreen

Two of the most interesting novelty introduced by Google in Android 4.2 are represented by the Quick Settings and Widgets in Lockscreen. The former are comparable to the quick toggle that allows us to enable / disable various features such as WiFi, Bluetooth, and others. The latter however are a complete novelty, and allow us to display the desired content from our users directly from the unlock screen.

Surely this is a step forward made by Google but that did not fully convinced everyone, because such hours to activate the WiFi requires two steps instead of one, as reported in the Quick Settings section of the Settings where she can activate a particular function rather than allowing the turn quickly, as is the case in proprietary interfaces like TouchWiz or as allows the CyanogenMod team in its ROM. As for the widget in the lockscreen, however, the choice and limited because for now there are only a handful of widgets to choose from.

For this reason, the forum member of XDA kevdliu has developed a modification that you can install on your Galaxy Nexus if you have on board any deodexed ROM based on Android 4.2. The MOD is the ability to enable or disable functionality as WiFi, Bluetooth, Brightness toggle as if they were, then selecting only once. In addition, also, there is even the dedicated button for the activation of the GPS, absent in Android 4.2 stock.

To check if the one you have on board and a deodexed ROM just launch any file manager that allows you to browse the folders of the system (which must also have root permissions) and check that the folder system / app there is no file with the extension ". ODEX."

Kevdliu, however, does not make a change just for Quick Settings. In fact also makes another mod that you can install on your Galaxy Nexus under the same conditions imposed on the Quick Settings, then deodexed ROM, root and custom recovery. This mod makes it possible to place any widget of any application in the new Lockscreen of Android 4.2, as you can see from the following image.

In this way you will have to necessarily wait until the developers update their applications by making available its widget for the lockscreen. Find all the details for the installation in its guides we have posted on our Forum and we remind you to make a Nandroid backup before making any changes to the system.
