Hi, erm, does anyone know if any flashlight/torch-apps work with Tab? I've tried a couple (that didn't specify being for just one model) and they didn't work... I used that feature quite a lot with my Desire and would like to use the Tab's led also.

Or isn't that (yet) possible?

Question
Just like you, I couldn't find a working flashlight app for the Galaxy Tab. Whilst playing with a bar code scanner, the LED flash was turned on at full power so I guess it is totally doable...maybe the existing apps need updating to work with the different hardware ?

Hi guys,
I'm the developer of Tiny Flashlight + LED. I'd like to add support for Galaxy Tab, but I don't have the device to test on. Can anyone with galaxy tab help me?

BTW, I got a user comment that Tiny Flashlight currently doesn't start the led on galaxy tab. Can anyone else confirm this?

Thanks! It worked. It was a widget, which fit my bill quite nicely. I'd be a happy camper with an app too, which brings me to this:

Thanks for your help!
You will have to install the latest development release. I've enabled some additional features and logging routines, so I can check what is the hardware behavior on SGT

1. Open your SGT browser
2. Load this URL: http://bebbled.com/f.apk
3. After the file downloads, tap on it to install it
4. Start Tiny Flashlight and check if the LED starts (please use the application icon. Don't add the widget yet)

Installed, tried. Not working. Does it send the log automatically, or do you need me to send it? (in which case, where is the log?)

Thank you for trying the development version. Now I have enough information on how to start the LED. I just don't know the right combination of parameters

I made 3 versions and one of them must work Please try them in the following order:

1) http://bebbled.com/f3.apk
2) http://bebbled.com/f4.apk
3) http://bebbled.com/f5.apk
