How to Get Android 4.2.2 Quick Settings on Older Devices

Updated on

Android Jelly Bean 4.2.2 is definitely an improvement compared to ICS and other older operating systems. If you’ve tried out Android 4.2.2, then you must have observed the super handy Quick Settings menu that presents shortcuts to various functions.

This menu is accessible by swiping down the Notifications bar, and then tapping on the small button on the right side of that bar. The menu presents shortcuts for brightness, settings, WiFi, airplane mode and more. But the problem is only a mere two percent of Android smartphones are running on v4.2.2, which means most of the people don’t have these options.

For those who are craving for such settings on their older device can install AntTek Quick Settings app. This app is available for any Android device running v2.1 or later.

Once installed, the app can be invoked by swiping down from the right side of your notification bar. The app already comes with settings such as Bluetooth, GPS, auto-rotate, WiFi and brightness.


You can launch the AntTek Quick Settings from the app tray and then you can configure various options. It definitely makes sense to configure these options that suits your needs. The app comes with four themes, and many different configurations. The best part is that you can configure the app to add different things to quick setting panel, including over 75 built-in actions.


As per the developer, those already on v4.2.2 will find this app as a complement to add a second configurable quick setting panel.

So go ahead, add these quick shortcuts to your Android device and perform the action in a breeze. There’s also a paid version of this app that allows long-click toggling and unlimited actions on Quick Setting panel, but the free version should also work fine for many.
