Hello,

Just want to share this simple app I made to enable torch when pressing volume up key when the screen is off. I know there are already many mods/xposed modules up there that can do this but this one works on stock rom without needing root access. It is a feature in earlier galaxy devices but for some reason was removed from the S6 or S6 Edge. This app enables it and allows to set timeout settings. Just install and enjoy.

Work great, but light is dimmer like in stock flashlight. On other 3rd app flash is more brightness. Can You add more power to this led ?

Don't work....Galaxy S6 flat

It does not work on Galaxy S6 flat.
The tweak works sometimes but when you really need is wrong.
Pity :(

Could someone confirm my doubts please..?
I wonder, couldn't vol up/down button be accidentally pressed in the pocket?

And yeah..what about wakelock?
This is great app but if it'll drain my battery and prevent device to go to deep sleep then I'll skip it.

how can i make torch to be brighter with this mod ?
You can't. It is enabling the stock torchlight.
It is the same if you have a rooted phone and use an app like "sqlite editor" then navigate to "apps", "settings storage", "settings.db", "system" and add (by hitting the + sign) the lines
name = torchlight_enable and value = 1
And for the timeout setting
Add
name = torchlight_timeout and value = 30000 (i use 60000 i.e. 1 min)
Xpericle has just made it easier for those not comfortable with root and sqlite ;)
I usually have to wake the device (by pressing the power key) and then lock it again to get the torch to work with volume up. I believe this is because the device does go into deepsleep and that is why some people say it doesn't work.

Caused a Wakelock that didn't let my phone enter DeepSleep

This.

After installing it, PhoneWindowManager.mTorchlightWakeLock is preventing my phone from going into deep sleep. Even after disabling and/or uninstalling it, the wakelock was still there and causing high battery drain.

OP, can you please help out?
Thanks.
