I also hope this app or patch comes out. I have my Pre working flawlessly, but my wife's Pixi's LED light doesn't work unless is used for pictures.

An LED light would rock. Don't get your hopes up for an overclock patch for the Pixi. The processor is not the same as the Pre and is less likely to take an OC.

This would be great, especially for shooting video with the pixi as well. LED only works for the camera. It's crazy bright for such a small LED. Once this gets patched my pixi is complete. Can't wait!

So it's just a matter of finding the code in a directory, then write an app? There is no missing or locked api that we have to wait on palm to release?

There is no api. Services like SysToolsMgr create javascript API for webOS apps/patches. What's needed, is to figure how the LED lights are controllable on a basic, commandline sense. On the Pre, you just need to writ a few values to a few system files and the light comes on. Unfortunately, the Pixi uses a different LED system for its flash.

Well .... here it is 2 years later. Has anyone found a flashlight app that uses the Pixi LED yet? If so, please post it.

i know you may toggle the led in bootie but when the os starts up unless you have a command line of some sort maybe there is a way to enable it

well, this explains a lot, as to why i havn't been able to find a working one.
is their any way to do a dump of the device into a linux terminal while using the camera?
that might help isolate the script it uses for the flash.

Well, I have one quick suggesstion. Why don't you rip the rom of pixi and get the camera.ipk and then, decompile it. If the HP has made the flashlight useable via camera, then definitely, there will be a link to the flashlight file on the pixi. I know this might sound vague but its a nice thing to try to get to the flashlight file faster and in the code, you can try searching for the names like "flash" or "led" or so.

I think I downloaded like 25 flahlight apps before I realized nobody has figured it out yet. To use a white screen as a flashlight while there's a perfectly good LED on the opposite side is such a disgrace.

Are you guys looking for the regular Pixi, Pixi Plus or both? I might have a quick dig around the camera app code to see what will trigger the LED but need to know which Doctor to download. I only have 3G speeds available here at the moment, so wouldn't want to waste too much time and bandwidth
