Samsung Galaxy S2 Jelly Bean Notification Panel settings missing

I got the latest update (Jelly Bean 4.1.2) yesterday for my Samsung Galaxy S2.
The new Notification Panel is missing from Settings.

On the Galaxy S3, the settings appear under Settings > Display > Notification panel.

 

The new Notification Panel quick settings buttons are very annoying.
After the Notification Panel opens, they slide left every time! It is a very bad UX.
If I could limit them to just 5, then at least they wont slide left every time I open the Notification Panel.

 

Is there a fix for this?

That's how Samsung have written the S2 ROM so unless you root the phone you're stuck with it.

MI5, thanks for letting me know.
How can one change this if the phone was rooted?

There are other launchers on Play (Nova / Apex etc) that work with root access to alter the "locked in" system default settings. Something like "Power Toggles" would also be able to be used to completely replace the system toggles and is fully customisable, but only with root access as system files have to be over written.
