Question Nexus 7 screen flicker: a potential software fix

I think I might have a software fix for the Nexus 7 screen flicker.
Screen flickers in low brightness and when using WiFi.
To solve this I am using an app called Screen Filter.

When I want to dim the screen I first turn the brightness UP and then use screen filter to lower it back to the level I actually want to use. This gives me a dim screen, and I have not notices any flickering when hitting WiFi. Does this work for anyone else?

This does only mask the problem for those that has it. It does not actually solve the problem. It has been covered multiple times in other threads.

I had what I would consider serious flicker and using Lux immediately and completely eliminated the problem.
