The HTC Flashlight app isn't bad. It looks fancy at least, and I see it's included in many ROMs, so it must do something better than TorchButton (my other baby).

Anyway, when you start HTC Flashlight, you get that annoying demo you have to wait for before you can use the app. Well, it's annoying to me at least.

Attached in the .zip is a fixed .exe in which the demo is skipped. The rest works like it does normally (light is turned on immediately at the middle setting). Just replace the original .exe with this one. If it's cooked into the ROM, you may not be able to overwrite it. Just put it somewhere else and make a shortcut then.

Btw, you can recognize if you use the modded .exe if you see FlashLight as title, instead of Flashlight (note the capital L).

Have fun.

Update march 7th
The original app can be downloaded from this thread, first post: [CAB] HTC Flashlight
(so after that, overwrite the exe with this one)

Update march 8th
Updated the attached .zip with a signed version of the executable, which prevents problems to run the fixed exe on stock roms and a number of custom roms.

aho77 made an updated cab wish signed version to install the whole thing, can be downloaded from this post: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...14#post5817414

Also attached is the certificate used to sign the executable. You shouldn't have to install this, but I provided it just in case.

You can ignore that message. Just click 'yes' to continue. (You get that message because the .exe was modified, and that's correct.)

If you want to get rid of that message forever, run this cab:

Not much point in that I think. This is just a hack for an existing app. You replace the .exe with this one. If I were to cab this, I'd have to provide the full app. I think there's like 3 dlls besides the exe normally.

[edit]
Here's you can download the original cab from, I'll add that to first post too: [CAB] HTC Flashlight (after installing that, overwrite with exe in first post)

Strange...I can't get it to run too.

I get the same error message (cannot be opened, not signed with trusted cert, component missing.) Installed the cab you provided, reset, but still the same msg. Running as standalone or copied to windows folder, same result. On official ROM 1.66 WWE.
