The minimum brightness is still very bright in my XL .....at night i ve to use night filter, a kind of app that puts a black colour filter over screen.....

This lowers the contrast and screen looks washed out .


I found a fix in Gravity box......i managed to lower the brightness to a lot lower level.....now i dont even use night mode filters....screen has good contrast at night too and my eyes are not strained anymore ......this likely improves battery life too .

Steps :

1. Install Xposed .....set it up
2. Download Gravity box module .
3. Under the Display tweaks and go to brightness settings
4 . Set minimum brightness level to 5 as shown in the screenshot .
5. Reboot

Enjoy

I ve clearly mentioned why screen filter is not as good as this method.....screen filter lowers contrast and does not save any more battery

I too use screen filter but as he said it lowers contrast ratio too, and this tweak will save battery too thus more useful

Can you do something similar to this, but with the volume, and instead of reducing the high-volume limit, increase it?

Sorry , i cant do anything in this regard.

But in my Xperia Tipo , the volume level was higher in cm10 with DSP Manager compared to Sony stock rom with xLoud.

So, dont lose ur hopes until cm11 arrives .
