  • You are the only one, who states that this is possible with (any/stock) Android 4.4.4.
    But no one, also me on a Nexus 5 have the category “Personalization” in the settings-menu.

    I have read a lot of posts, that it is not possible to modify the Quick Settings Toggle without rooting and GravityBox on Android 4.4.x/Nexus 5.

    So you are on a custom ROM?
