Icon Project offers a way to create SBSettings-like shortcuts on your iPhone home screen without jailbreaking, reports iphonaddict.

The app which is available in the App Store lets you easily create icons that point to specific areas in the Settings menu. While not technically 'toggles', these shortcuts will speed up the time it takes to change your settings.

Here's a list of possible shortcuts:
