!!READ ALL THE WORDS!!

More often we're seeing Canadian versions of samsung devices without mobile data or hotspot buttons (quick toggles). Biggest problem everybody has is it seems too complicated to restore or enable them.

 NOT ANYMORE!

I've created a very simple batch file/script that will easily walk you through the whole process and do all the work! If automatic mode doesn't work, it will restore from backup and allow you to do it manually while giving you the exact commands to type. A backup is created when you attempt to modify your toggles, so you can always restore your original toggles.

Why are the tiles missing?
According to Samsung: "To clarify the #1 response I see posted in here regularly is the carriers have taken it out. That is not accurate. While Samsung has enabled this feature in other regions, in Canada there was a decision to have this feature removed. We have been reviewing the comments and requests to have this added back and have filter the requests back to the R&D team to have this explored further."

Android 10
The mobile data toggle has been restored in Samsung devices with Android 10. You will still need this script if you wish to enable the Hotspot toggle.
 

Works with:

Android 10

(Hotspot only)

Android 9

(Pie)

Android 8

(Oreo)

Android 7

(Nougat)

Galaxy N9/10
Galaxy S9/10/20
Galaxy A 8/20/50/70
Galaxy N 9/10
Galaxy S 8/9/10
Galaxy A 3/5/7/8
Galaxy N 8/9
Galaxy S 6/7/8/9
Galaxy A3/5/7/8
Galaxy N 8
Galaxy S 6/7/8

Just because your Samsung device isn't listed does not mean it may not work.  The only requirement is that you're on Android Nougat or above. Samsung devices are mostly configured the same way and this script should work for yours as well.  So long as the backup was created, anyone that wants to experiment can try it on their device and have the protection of restoring from backup.

First part: download smart switch for your PC https://www.samsung.com/ca/support/app/smartswitch/
and do a backup of your device.
(this process will modify settings in your phone. if it doesn't work, you will be able to restore your original toggles via the script. But if that fails you will have to do a factory reset and restore your data via smart switch)

Second part: download my copy of platform-tools (Easy Restore) onto your PC
http://www.pconline.ca/downloads/platform-tools.zip
This link will re-direct you to the new site http://easyrestore.pconline.ca
(This is the standard adb download with my added batch files)
-extract the files (preferably to your desktop)
-install the USB drivers (included if needed)
-put you phone in usb debugging mode
(instructions here - http://bfy.tw/G7gO)
-plug your phone into your computer
-once you hear the device connected sound in windows, run (double-click) "RUNME.bat"
Full tutorial can be found here - http://easyrestore.pconline.ca/en/?page=tutorials 

The script is based off the information provided on XDA by Mishaal Rahman - https://www.xda-developers.com/how-to-restore-mobile-data-quick-settings-tile-toggle-on-samsung-gala...

IMPORTANT NOTE: Every update and security patch undoes this process. You must go through these steps again after every update in order to re-enable the toggles. There's no way to prevent this. According to Samsung, they are looking at having this feature enabled by default.

SPECIAL NOTE: you can examine the .bat files yourself using notepad to ensure that no malicious code is hidden within.  I wouldn't want to spread malicious code. I enjoy helping people in this community and wouldn't want to sacrifice my good reputation.

Enjoy!

Does this actually enable the Data Tile or does clicking on it just take you to Settings - Connections? Thanks

it will add the tiles to your quick settings and you will be able to turn it on and off directly from the notification bar

I can use adb to use a couple of Apps that will take me Directly to the Data toggle in Connections but they don't turn the Tile on directly.
