Hello to all.
I'm here again

THE PROBLEM
Our gs3 has a very bad default settings for brightness value!!!
I have downlaoded the Brightness Fix from Omega files but the result is not very good (for me) and so i decided to tweak level a little to make a perfect combination of the brightness in every situation.

THE SOLUTION
I have made two version: the first (bestScreen) one is the original fix little tweaked by me (not a lot but the result is really better), the other version has the same values of Galaxy Note (my daddy has a GNote and the values and level are wonderful so i thought to make one with these settings).

I prefer bestScreen version

HOW TO GET IT >>> VERY SIMPLE

Simply download the version do you want!
This mod is compatibile with all firmware and custom rom based on XXLxx samsung Rom (latest xx is the number of firmware version).
Thanks to VrTheme system you can flash this mod WITHOUT LOOSING ANY THEME, MOD OR OTHER THINGS
My suggestion is to flash this mod at the end and if you lost this mod after flashing theme or others simply reflash this mod and you will be ok!

ABOUT THE 3 VERSION
BestScreen: high values of brightness for a very wonderful screen brightness. In my opinion the best values. It has ZERO effects on battery!

It's based on Samsung firmware and brightness fix present in omega files. So I think it would works with all samsung based firmware.

I have tested it with Omega v9.1

Wanamlite is samsung based?

Thank you for your work,
but is it possible to have a tutorial?
My android.policy.jar and my framework are modded by myself and for myself, I don't want to erase my work...

Thank you again, have a good day .

EDIT : Or maybe you must try to make this mod with the vrtheme system, to only replace the file who are modified in the file without touch at the others files .

Download my mod and decompile framework res file.
You can find the values in file called 'array' in res/value folder.

If you haven't modded this file in your modded framework, you can take the file from my mod and overwrite the your's.

Then compile and replace framework file
