How to Add more Tiles to the Quick Settings Header (No Root)

    Hey guys!

    The fine folks over at XDA found a way to add additional Quick Setting tiles to the header (the single row of Quick Settings tiles that shows up under the time and date when you pull down the notification shade) of any Android running close to stock AOSP software and this method does not require root, only the use of a simple ADB command.

    Here is the link for those interested:

    This is not my article or mod. I have not seen it posted in these forums yet so I'm just pointing it out to you guys in case you prefer the stock AOSP look that has 6 QS tiles instead of the 5 that OxygenOS has currently.

    All credits should go to the respective developer over at XDA: XDA Senior Member paphonb; and to Mishaal Rahman for posting the article.

    I tried it on my OnePlus 3T running OB7 and it works flawlessly.

    Hope this is useful to you!

    As we all know the AOSP and pure stock roms on Pixel/Nexus devices use 6 QS toggles in their Header but OnePlus implemented 5 toggles. Although it's a small difference but can be big for many. To fix this I bring you the tweak which will allow you to customise the number of quick setting toggles which show up in the Header WITHOUT ROOT (!!!).

    First of all ensure that your device is connected to the PC via ADB and then type the following to verify the connection:

    adb devices

    If a device ID shows uo type the following code in Terminal to tweak the QS toggles

    adb shell settings put secure sysui_qqs_count X

    Replace X with the number you want to have (default is 5). And done, you now have the ability to customise how many toggles show up in the Header!

    Below is the screenshot of my setting with 6 toggles:

    I honestly don't know the max since I think 6 is plenty but you can try to add more if you wish. As you can see, with 9 it already looks too crowded for my tastes. Glad it worked for you, though!

    Nice Tweak!
    Quick question though, can I update the device's software without any hiccup whatsoever?
    Do I need to undo the changes before updating?

    no need to undo any changes. you can just update. but the changes would be lost once you update to new OS. You have to give the command through ADB again.
