Apps are at the front and center of any smartphone experience, and with over a million apps on the Google Play Store and new apps being submitted to our forums every day, staying up to date on the latest apps and games can be a hassle. At XDA, we don’t discriminate apps - if it’s interesting, innovative, original or useful, we mention them.

HTC Flashlight APK
Having a flashlight on your device is becoming a necessity for just about all Windows and Android phone owners. Well, it seems XDA member JaydenR found the need for this on his Droid Incredible. So, he extracted the application from Android 2.2 build on the HTC Desire. This application does not need root access to use, so you simply need to install it and find your way around your dark house.
This is the Flashlight apk from the 2.2 Froyo Desire rom. No root is needed and it uses the screen instead of the camera led’s.
Still it’s pretty sweet and looks awesome.
Credit to udK who dropped this rom. All I did was pull it and post it.
Now to answer some questions:
Why do I need this?
Will this break my phone?
Don’t know. Depends what you use it for.
Will this void my warranty?
Its a non root stock HTC apk
Will it help me find my long lost brother?
Can I get this from the market?
How do I install this?
Log off, turn your computer off and please walk away. Seriously
Blind your friends with this APK file, which can be found in the application thread.
