Think you can make a hack to make the Xperia Plays screens super bright and well in the sun? A hack+ this app would be nice?. Wouldn't mind paying for a brighter screen

I used the XDA App to post this, what did you use?

It won't go any brighter

I've tried but there is nothing I can do. Maybe a kernel / ROM dev can do this?

By the way, have you tried the app?

Well dude, i bought your app because you solved the only major problem that i had with this phone. And you deserve credit for actually giving a "flying sh**" when other devs didnt care..

Im gonna try this app with more time when i arrive home, for now it worked fine
i tested on a Xperia play R800i.

Thanks

My ROM has auto-brightness disabled by default, so yeah.. don't lump us all together when you say "other devs didn't care", please.

You don't get to make that call. You didn't write the app. Be glad we have the option at all.
