Hello

I just got my Z1 compact and so far love it (after some modifications) however I think the notification LED is way too dim for my tastes.
On Xperia 2011 devices there was a way to increase notification led brightness but apparently it no longer works since too many things have changed.

Does anyone know of a way to achieve this??

Thanks

There is a thin band which cover the led. I believe it's made of tissue. I took it away with a thin lame. Now the led is much brighter. If you have to do it. Do it on your own risk. It worked for me!

Wow, and you have problems with water resistance?

But this is not a solution, it does not look good. I increase the voltage of the diode, it would help me.

... Z1 Compact ...

I also posted the mod rebased to Z1C .108 firmware here and I've included a file that only boosts the notification led. They are however untested so you're welcome to try if it helps.
