Hey guys,

Like temhe title says my flashlight isn't working properly.

When I updated my phone to Android 4.2.2 my flashlight isn't as good as it should be.

When I did this update my phone wasn't rooted, not bootloader unlocked but just the stock HTC One X+.

After a long time it started bothering me and I called HTC helpdesk. They told me I had to send it for reparation. And I was like: hell no! Because I just rooted it and didn't want to reverse everything just because of this flashlight.

Maybe you guys can help me out because I think it is software related.
Before the update it was working, after the update it went like this. (See picture)



Left one is mine, and the right one is from one of my classmates and he has the same phone. And the same software.

Any suggestions? No I'm not sending it back to HTC.

The left is yours?

What apps are you using to enable the flashlight?

On that time we both used the same build-in HTC Flashlight app. Though it looks like one of the lamps in it is broken since the light is coming from the bottem. :S

You can still check other flashlight apps. If nothing changes then it is a hardware issue.

Already did that, so it will be a hardware problem then..
Which means the update killed my Flashlight.

It's hard to believe that an update may have damages your flashlight.

I am quite sure. I had sence 4 on it with Android 4.1.2 when I got the phone and after the update to 4.2.2 it stopped working properly.
