Just a thought guys, if this isnt already out there which i cant seem to find.


Could anyone make a app that turns the flash light to on so it can
be used as a light?
Seen it done on other phones would just be a nice feature.

We need root for this.

Wait for root to go public, then this will probably follow (I doubt you need write access to /system for it).

Personally I doubt it will be feasible. Too many symbian phones we messed around with for years trying to make it happen, unsuccessfully (in some way or another). Would've been excellent if it was accomplished though. Even just a method to blink the flash on a press would be excellent.

With root it's possible for the Nexus so why not for the Desire. But we still have to wait for the Root acces. Damn waiting takes so long!

This function is built into the Quick Settings app you can get for free in the market isn't it?

Re: LED Flashlight,
Yeah, that option just enables a bright white screen for now.

well it seems to be possible without root access, while I can active the flashlight led with a

echo 125 > /sys/devices/platform/flashlight.0/leds/flashlight/brightness

If I have time, I will make a little widget that will do it

That would be awesome if it's possible, it's pretty much the only feature that I think is missing from the Desire as far as I'm concerned.

Ok I made some tests, it will not be a problem to develop a simple application (would be better than a widget ?) with a variable light power
