Hello guise,

This time I'll share with you something that @RyokoN found out. Please thank him here. I just made proper changes to the file he mentioned.
Someday I was killed by my friend N5 torch. It was so bright. Now I decided that I want my torch to be actually useful, just like his torch is. (we were trying to see details in a dark place to fix the window).

It may break your LED if you leave it on for some time. I'm not responsible for any damage. It actually made my back around the LED a bit warm after a few seconds in the extreme version!
Please be aware that it's not safe to test it on devices that are older than Xperia Z as LED's may vary hardware-side.

Anyway, enjoy
Extreme version - just torch
Medium version - just torch
Medium version - torch, camera, flash, notification LED <------------ RECOMMENDED!
Extreme version - torch, camera, flash, notification LED

Revert to stock Z1 torch

It's based on Z1 .108 firmware (4.4.4), but it WILL work on 4.3 roms. Can't say about older android versions - you tell me!
Please test and let me know how it went

It's significantly brighter now. At first it barely gave any light and now it's even brighter then the light in my room on a small distance, lol.

Confirmed working on:
Z 4.4.4
ZR
Z1 Compact
Z1s
Z1 4.3 4.4
Z2 4.4
Z3 4.4

Have you checked if the led can endure the increased amount of current?
i dont want my led to be damaged permanently because of this

I didn't, but it's using the same current like the flash in camera. It shouldn't harm your device if you won't use it for a long time like 15 minutes - just a guess.
As always, use it in your own risk.

Ok.. that's awesome!!!! It's amazing, even if you turn torch on when taking a photo it's brighter that flash itself.. I'm wondering
If there is any chance to boost flash at the same level with camera to get better pictures..

Lol, I actually thought that I set it at the same level as the flash.

1 of the disadvantages of glass+metal: it heats up pretty quickly,
