Ok now this is what I've tried and works fine for me.
If you want a much brighter LED flashlight for your camera, edit your build.prop to these values ( if you dont have these lines, add them)

ro.media.capture.flash=led
ro.media.capture.flashMinV=3300000
ro.media.capture.torchIntensity=140
ro.media.capture.flashIntensity=145


SAVE the build.prop and reboot. Then check the flash light through camera app.
These are just value edits I have done and the coding is not by me.
Use it on your own risk! Don't blame me if you spoil your device ....

Hit thanks if I have helped you.

EDIT:

An alternative would be install pimp my Rom app, use flash led tweaks from it, reboot, then search build.prop for the lines mentioned above, edit them according to the above mentioned lines, save them and then reboot and find the difference in flash led in camera app (when the camera captures a pic, you will notice the difference) or, in custom roms, using just the flashlight app can show the difference.

Thank you
this was useful , for some odd reason after rooting my device the flash was dimmer , (probably a glitch with Bin4ry's Rooting script)

Good MOD, but to attain higher LED Flash we have to consider a little bit more battery drain right?

Well yeah... high brightness... more power.. more battery drain when u use your flash led extensively

Unhappy
It was weird when I find out that Xperia S Flash is Dim!
I used Xperia Neo befor buying xperia S and it had really Bright Flash and it even can Burn you Finger if you put your finger on it.
I have to try this MOD.
Hope this works.
