How To Tweak Your CM9 Notification Bar for Extra Toggles


Your notification bar and you. You have a great relationship. If you’re running CM9, you have an even better one! One of the things we love best about the way the CM team does the notification bar is the quick toggles for various functions. If you’re looking to add even more functionality to your notification bar, though, this tweak is certainly for you. That is, if you’re using one of the devices listed below. Developer rob43 has released instructions on how to add some extra kick to your bar for these devices.

The original method was devised by rob43 for the Galaxy Nexus. However, it has been shown to work for the following other devices, as well:

  • LG Optimus One
  • Samsung Galaxy S, GSII, Nexus S
  • Motorola Defy, Atrix

We think you’ll agree that all the extra toggles are a great feature for any device, and we’re hoping that they find a permanent home in CM9. So, what’s changed by this tweak?

  • Centered clock
  • Modified notification layout
  • Separate tabs for quick toggles and notifications
  • Brightness control (must have auto-brightness off to work)
  • Transparent notification bar

Installation is pretty easy. Flash the zip in CWM recovery, wipe your dalvik cache, and reboot. If you want to say thanks, give a donation or have some questions, hit up the original thread here.]]>
