Short answer: You can, but you shouldn't. Install a custom ROM instead. Long answer: Some features in your stock ROM may be dependant on that ROM's Settings app, because it might contain some preferences that affect them. Your Settings app may be missing some Lollipop settings simply because the ROM doesn't support them. You can try to install the AOSP ...

My stock Android 4.2 and 4.4 devices doesn't allow Quick Settings customization. To customize it, I had to settle with Gravitybox [JB] which needs Xposed Framework and root access. My initial stock Quick Settings were more or less similar to the one you posted. After my favorite tweaks it looks like (see an app's icon too): ...

This is indeed a bug, or possibly, an overlook by Google, since the possibility for this bug to happen is very small. The bug occurs when you set the data limit above 700,000,000 GB (or 700 petabyte). Note: This solution needs root access since it modifies a system file directly. Open file manager that can browse internal storage (e.g. ES File Explorer) ...

It seems the problem is related to GSM/CDMA network. As you bought the phone in US which uses CDMA networks, I kind of believe that the default setting is to use LTE/CDMA network. You can change the preferred network type by: Dial *#*#4636#*#* (i.e. *#*#INFO#*#*) Select Phone info Scroll down to Set preferred network type Select the one with GSM (e.g. ...

If you tap on one of the search engine, it should give you this dialog box which you can tap on "Set as default": I tested it on a Nexus 6 and it does switch the search provider used in the Home-button swipe search. If this dialog doesn't appear for you or if the "Set as default" here doesn't change your search in both the URL bar and Home Button search, ...

The best solution I could come up with was to install Power Toggles, and add a shortcut to my homescreen. From unlocked, this is 1 tap. And if locked, because I use fingerprint unlock, it's hardly more than 1 tap anyway. I can't use root because this is a work-supplied phone, and some required software won't work if the phone is rooted.

Setting limit to phone background process can really improve the performance of your phone. Only, if you open an application, the phone will take a few seconds to load since it will load first the necessary files to be used by a certain apps. Another advantage, you can prolong the battery life since there is no background process running.

On many devices there is a setting that can control this. It is also included in many custom ROMs. In Settings > Sounds there should be an option for Increasing ring volume If you turn this off, the ringtone will start at the volume you have set, rather than starting at a lower volume and increasing over the duration of the ringtone.

This is what happened to me. So, go to the hola launcher settings, then the first option will be,"set as default". Turn this option off, then your phone will be back to what it was. Then, go to play store, go to my apps, gind hola launcher then click uninstall.

I doubt there is a setting on the Phone or on the Chromecast device that allows you to set the SSDP query interval. I've certainly never seen one. Technical detail Firstly, 1 UDP packet a second is not a flood. Secondly, it's just the device sending out SSDP probes. This is not a big deal. I think once a second might be a bit much for a discovery ...
