Hello Xperia users!
I thought i would make this post here on how to install @olokos Bright flashlight mod for the Z1
This is confirmed WORKING on D5833 & D5803 versions, both lollipop, marshmallow and concept.
This also works on the Z1, Z2, there is also reports that it works on Z5 (Don't see why it wouldn't)

EXTREME CAUTION
This will make the LED heat up quicker than normal

Medium version warning
This will heat up the device so be warned your phone may be hot to touch (Nothing concerning - within rage of safe limits)

EXTREME version warning
This will heat your device and may cause damage if left on for large amounts of time (Personally haven't measured temperature for the extreme version - Device shouldn't get hotter than 90 Celcius, however)
Please take extreme caution when using this version, as it could potentially be blinding


This is a handy little mod which makes the torch on your phone a hella lot brighter than stock, great for night pictures or just as a torch

DOWNLOAD LINKS

STEPS

1. Download one of the files above and move it to your SDcard (Its recomended to go with Medium as extreme can heat up your Z3)
2. Enter recovery and backup the system (In case you ever want to revert back - or something breaks)
3. Flash the zip you downloaded
4. Enjoy


How it works

This mod works by modifying a little bit of code inside system which changes how much power gets sent to the flashlight, its a nice little bit of code which lies in system/etc

# Max current of battery at 60 degC (uA)
i_batt_max_high = 1000000

# Max current for Torch (uA)
i_batt_max_torch = 1000000

# Flash LED_If max current (uA)
max_if_flash = 1500000



Disclaimer: If anything happens to your device it is not my fault, you are flashing this at your own risk
If any download links are not working please message me

I just flashed the 'recommended' mod, and it seems to work well. As soon as I turned on the flash, it just shocked me to see how bright it is. Thanks for sharing this!

So far it has no side affects on any devices - It potentially could degrade over time but no one has seen this happen.

Only thing it could do is drain the battery a bit quicker when on, not too bad if you are on MM

Thank you.
