on my previous phone with cm7 i could draw patterns on the lock screen to launch apps/activities.

the only one i had was toggle flashlight.

is there anything similar that can be done with 4.4.3?

if not, any good rom to have that?

thanks

The Xposed module GravityBox allows you to have a quick flashlight shortcut. Once configured correctly, on your lockscreen you can hold down the slide to unlock ring to turn the flashlight on and off.

thanks. i still have to give xposed a try!

this will probably be the tipping point.

edit: after installing everything with flashlight on the name and without internet permission from the market, i finally found this:
https://github.com/theUltimateLabs/t...mateFlashlight

it allows me to turn it on by pressing power button twice! xposed delayed some more

it's gpl. will recommend to fdroid.

I use "xposed torch" https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ma.wanam.torch
and have it set for volume up= volume down=off, I like it because I don't have to turn on the screen to use it or open the flip case I use.

As you guys are talking about flashlight have you guys noticed that the app "Adjustable Torch" doesn't work with Moto X? It was the only torch app I used to use, but it doesn't support Moto X It was the only app which used the flash LED's intensity at it's highest (all other apps use a dim state of LED) and you could even control it! Damn.

i personally only use the dimmest option. some apps have bright mode, always ignored it. dim is already too much

I use touchless control. I say OK Google now, open torch. Torch is a free app that can be set to turn on the light when app is opened.
