I have an LG G2 which came with Jelly Bean, and I have recently updated it to Kit Kat. I have noticed that the amount of confirmation dialogs when changing phone settings seems to have gone up from Jelly Bean (although Jelly Bean had a lot as well, IMHO). I am of the opinion that if I change a phone setting, I want to do it, and I am sure of it. I don't want to confirm every thing I do with the settings every single time (maybe the first time I do it on the phone, but not forever).

For example:

  • On Jelly Bean, if I enable GPS via the quick settings, it would just enable. With Kit Kat, every time I enable it via quick settings, I have to confirm twice that this is what I want to do (once for "Location consent" and again for Google's location service). Since I like to leave GPS off until I need it to save battery (such as for my traffic app), this gets annoying really fast
  • Another example that bugged me with Jelly Bean is the same on Kit Kat: every time I want to reset the phone, I have to confirm it
  • Turning off mobile data warns me that I will not be able to use apps that require a data connection. I know this. I don't need to confirm this every time I want to disable data
  • Airplane mode produces a dialog stating that I will be unable to make or receive calls with it on. Again, I know this. I don't need to be reminded every time
  • Oddly enough, enabling/disabling Bluetooth does not produce such nags.

I was wondering if there is any way (mod, app, hack) to turn off these confirmation dialogs. Thanks in advance for any insight.

    If you are rooted you can use Xposed to disable some of these! Otherwise... I don't think you can. – RossC Jul 10 '14 at 9:55
  • @RossC Could you mention the Xposed module name? – Firelord Aug 21 '15 at 4:54
  • @firelord you'd need several, depending on the dialogue. O don't use it anymore so I don't know, I'll look into it though – RossC Aug 21 '15 at 12:27
  • I only recently updated and have the same issues (also, the sync switch in the quick settings need to be confirmed every time...). Did you find any solutions? – P_S Dec 19 '15 at 9:12
