I want to disable a few buttons like "Driving mode" from the notification bar on my S4.

Yes, I have read exactly this question and I know the general idea. (I have seen it on 4.1).

But on my device with 4.2.2 the problem is: All buttons are enabled and there is no area for disabled buttons to move buttons to.

Is there any secret trick I have missed?

EDIT: There are some good screenshots about the situation here. And I would be curious, if this is specific to the S4 or specific to 4.2.2?

  • +1 I was going to ask the same thing tonight. Also, I would like to know how to add items (wifi) to the menu, but I think I will be able to figure that out once there is an answer to this question. – TronicZomB Jul 17 '13 at 23:22

Unlike the Note 2, the S4 doesn't have the "Available Buttons" section in the notification panel. So, you cannot remove the items.

  • But I have seen pictures of the S4 with a WiFi toggle in the notification panel yet I do not have that toggle. How is that possible? – TronicZomB Jul 18 '13 at 3:35
  • @TronicZomB Yes, the S4 has a Wi-Fi toggle. I also have an S4. Is your device an S4? – geffchang Jul 18 '13 at 3:57
  • @geffchang: So to get this straight: This feature exists on the Note, Note 2 (and possibly others) but was dropped from the S4? Do you happen to know, what factors decide on the existance of this feature? – Elrond Jul 18 '13 at 8:12
  • @TronicZomB: Yes, my S4 has a wifi button. You might scroll to the left or right. Or use the grid button at the top right to display all buttons in a big grid (totally crowded). – Elrond Jul 18 '13 at 8:13
  • @Elrond yes I have and tried to customize the notifications area and it's not there. – TronicZomB Jul 18 '13 at 12:00
