Boost The Brightness Of The LED On A Sony Xperia Z1,Z1 Compact and Xperia Z2

Mobile phones give us the option of using the camera flash as a flashlight.  With Sony Devices, there is a mod that can enhance the brightness level to make your mobile device a better flashlight by increasing the brightness of the LED light.

XDA member olokos devised the mod and in this guide, we’re going to show you how you can install and use it.  All you need is a Sony Xperia Z1, Z1 Compact or Xperia Z2 that has a custom recovery installed and is rooted.

NOTE: Leaving your LED on for a considerable amount of time can damage the LED. Be careful how you use it.

Note: The methods needed to flash custom recoveries, roms and to root your phone can result in bricking your device. Rooting your device will also void the warranty and it will no longer be eligible for free device services from manufacturers or warranty providers. Be responsible and keep these in mind before you decide to proceed on your own responsibility. In case a mishap occurs, we or the device manufacturers should never be held responsible.

How To Install Brightness MOD:

  • Copy LED Mod file you downloaded onto your device’s SD card.
  • Turn your phone off and open it on Bootloader/Fastboot mode by pressing and holding down the volume down and power buttons until some text appears on screen.
  • In bootloader mode and choose your Recovery.  For the next few steps, follow the one for the custom recovery you have installed on your device.
