How to enable the mobile data toggle in quick settings on the Galaxy Note 8

0 269

Depending on the region of your Galaxy Note 8 will depend on what certain software customization you get. We’ve already covered how to enable the mobile data toggle on the Galaxy S8 and S8+ and it seems that the Samsung’s Consumer Software Customization file (CSC) has extended to the Note 8 to not include the toggle in some regions.

The mobile data toggle will enable you to quickly enable or disable mobile data directly from the quick settings pull down shade. The process is similar to enabling the toggle on the Galaxy S8 and again doesn’t require root to get it back. You’ll need to have your Note 8 connected to your computer with ADB capability. After you have ADB set up, make sure to enable USB Debugging by going to “Developer Options” under Settings.

Enable the Mobile Data Tile on the Note 8

First enter the following command:

adb shell

Your terminal/command prompt should now indicate that you are within the shell environment of your device. Up next, enter this command:

settings get secure sysui_qs_tiles

This will output a comma-separated list of names that represent your current Quick Settings tiles. Copy it and paste it somewhere (like a random notepad) to keep it available, as you’ll need it for the next command. Enter the following after:

settings put secure sysui_qs_tiles "YOUROLDLIST,MobileData"

Where YOUROLDLIST represents the comma separated list of Quick Setting tiles that you saved just before, and MobileData and Hotspot is the name of the Mobile Data Toggle and Hotspot Toggle respectively, appended to the very end of the original tiles list. Note the use of quotation marks. Basically, all we’re doing is appending the name of the Mobile Data and Hotspot toggles to the end of our original tile list.

Once you enter this command, you should immediately see the Mobile Data and Hotspot toggle show up at the end of your Quick Settings tiles. You can re-arrange them as you please so it will appear on the first page. These toggles will remain through a reboot, but you’ll need to set it up again if you perform a factory reset.

There you have it – a mobile data toggle on your Galaxy Note 8. Enjoy!
