Use the snippet at the end of this mail to add an "Edit" button to each "CellToolBar" (select the "Mobile" Preset in the main toolbar) 
It will need a CSS fix that will be released soon (need to be written though) to look nice.

No need to tweak anymore ! 
(you can also add button in the MainToolbar if you whish)
Cf example

Yes, We should open a Meta-Issue with a tasklist

In your custom.js
------
mobile_preset = []
var edit = function(div, cell) {
        var button_container = $(div);
        var button = $('<div/>').button({icons:{primary:'ui-icon-pencil'}});
            button.click(function(){
                cell.edit()
                    })
        button_container.append(button);
}

IPython.CellToolbar.register_callback('mobile.edit',edit);
mobile_preset.push('mobile.edit');

IPython.CellToolbar.register_preset('Mobile',mobile_preset);
