Hello Guys!!

Have anybody missed AUTO BRIGHTNESS feature in L9 because lack of Ambient Light Sensor,

If yes, the don't worry. I have an easy solution for Auto Brightness, Yes you can use Auto Brightness on LG Optimus L9

NO ROOT REQUIRED

Download and install These two app from following links:-

Lux Auto Brightness

Tasker

After Installing these apps follow these steps:-

Lux Auto Brightness:-

  • Go to Lux settings
  • Tap on Sample Collection
  • Tap on Select light reading source
  • Select Camera
  • Then get back to main settings menu
  • Tap on Mopdify linked samples
  • Tap on Luma TAB
  • Tap on ADD, set brightness (yello bar) to 4% Luma value to 1 and press ADD
  • Add 3 more links with these values= 35%-70|100%-80|50%-120|
  • Exit Lux

Tasker:

  • Open Tasker, tap on Plus Gign(+) on main screen
  • Tap on Event
  • Select Display in Event Category
  • Select Display On in Display Event
  • A blank screen will appear, do nothing just press BACK Button
  • TAP on New Task +
  • Enter Name to task or just tap on tick
  • A blank screen will Appear, tap on Plus Sign (+)
  • Select Plugin from action category
  • Select Lux Plug-in
  • Tap on Edit Button
  • Scroll Down and Tick in front of Refresh Backlight brightness? Under Force
  • Press Done, then press back and back again
  • Exit Tasker


Thats all work to do, now your dvice have Auto Brightness feature

To test, just press power button and lock the screen and then cover front camera with finger and press power button again, screen will Light up wait 1-2 seconds, Screen brightness will reduce, remove finger, lock unlock screen and brightness will resume to normal.

I have tested this for full day on my L9 and got no any battery drainage.
You can modify Linked Samples Values to your comfort zone for batter sample values you can also search other XDA forums.

Guys try it and let me know how you feel
if you got any issue please post, I'll try to solve it (Coz m also new to TASKER & LUX so may be it will take little bit time to Solve)

EDIT: You can uncheck "Presistent notification" in general settings of Lux Auto Brightness, If you think it is draining your phone's battery. This will also disable the annoying Lux icon from notification.

HIT THANKS IF I DESERVE IT

Is this battery hungry workaround ? Two apps must run in background so they must eat battery .

Is it possible to have a refresh .. for example every 10 minutes camera will check light to set brightness?

Found it's in lux settings!

No, I have tested this yesterday for full day and haven't noticed any battery drainage coz of these apps. According to me, besides draining battery this MOD should save battery by adjusting it according to Ambient Light.

Yes Mr.Brown, you can set automatic refresh in general settings, but I'll never suggest you use automatic mode, it could drain your phones battery.

Yes bleuwavem you are absolutely right, that's why I am using tasker to initiate refresh process on display on. If you use lux individually then it will slow down your phone and drain the battery. In my tutorial actually lux is not running in background (if it is running you can kill it). Tasker plug in triggers it to refresh the brightness. Coz i have used it for hole day and currently using, I have not face any issues with device performance. If anyone body faced any issue can post here i'll try to solve it.

I was also unable to find Lux in play store and its fully compatible with our device. I haven't tried light version, you may try it and plz let me know if it is working so i can attach light APK in first post.
