1. Download and install Xposed Framework

2. Download and install GravityBox[KK] via Xposed (or if you're still on JellyBean then choose GravityBox[JB])
---a. Apply the GravityBox module and reboot

3. Open GravityBox and click on Display Tweaks (6th option down), then select "Brightness Settings".

4. Turn the switch to "On" and move the slider for "Minimum Brightness Level" down to 1.

5. Reboot to apply the changes.

Autobrightness won't take advantage of these changes but manual brightness will go very very dim now.

This worked for me so I hope this helps!

If you run into errors just quote this post and tell me what went wrong and I'll do my best to try to troubleshoot with you.
Motorola Moto X 32GB (Navy/Silver/Black) (BL Unlocked)(Current)
Asus Transformer Pad Infinity w/ Dock (CM11)
Samsung Galaxy S4 16GB (Black Mist) (Rooted)(Backup Device)
Just because it has Corning Gorilla Glass™ doesn't mean it won't break/scratch, it is glass after all.

Sideload Xposed via the APK download:
http://repo.xposed.info/module/de.ro...osed.installer

And GravityBox is installed through the Xposed installer, so after you install Xposed, open Xposed and select "Framework" then click "Install/Update" then reboot. Once the phone reboots go back into Xposed and select "Download". Find "GravityBox[KK]" and swipe from right to left to get to "Versions". From there select Download on the latest version (3.2.1 at the moment). Back out to the main screen of Xposed and select "Modules". Put a check in the box for GravityBox and then reboot. Now open GravityBox and continue with the steps to lower the brightness.

There is an option in Xposed/Gravity Box KK/ Statusbar tweeks..to press on statusbar, slide left or right to control brightness..seems most simple, convenient way for me..

Check out "display brightness " on play store. Doesn't make it go dimmer than stock minimum.... But puts a highly customizable always on top slider on the screen. Anywhere around the edges and any size or color. A great way to manually control brightness and save some juice.

Need help with poor battery life on the N5...or any device really? Lots of info in first 3 posts! >>>>

https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...yesfree.shades I downloaded this from the Play Store works very well a lot dimmer than the stock lowest setting takes it to completely black. saves on the battery

edit not sure it saves batt... may be just shading the brightness? will have to look into changing settings and see ifbatt gets better

I use Lux and its perfect for me. Make sure to disable the built in auto brightness if you use it. It has day and night profiles. I have my night profile set at -40% for 0lx and my day set to -10% for 0lx. I use dynamic mode but other modes work well too and use less sensor time.
