Previously I talked about the Pebble Time Kickstarter, and why I thought it was the most practical smartwatch to buy in 2015, and that I decided to be an early backer on Kickstarter. Well as of this morning an interesting development has come from my - currently - favorite smartwatch company. They will release the Pebble Time Steel variant alongside the regular Pebble, instead of say a whole release cycle down the road. The accompanying announcement along with the Steel,...
Use Your XT720 Milestone’s Red Eye Prevention LED as a Flashlight!
So, you come from a different device into the world of the Milestone XT720 and you find out that you cannot annoy your friends with the flashlight app that you are so used to using for this. As it turns out, because the type of flash in the XT720 is a Xenon lamp flash, the lamp itself works differently than other regular LED flash lamps found in other devices. Luckily, XDA member easye420 has come up with a solution for this short coming. LightXT, as its name suggests, is a flashlight application that will work with the XT720’s Xenon lamp to give you flashlight capabilities. Very few, if any, apps out there will allow you to do this with this device (or any other device equipped with such technology). So, now you can go back to that dark stairwell with the confidence that you will not trip on some unseen cable.
Please leave some feedback for the dev as this app is in beta stage and he is currently looking for bugs.
Alright guys here it is. LightXT its pretty self explanatory. This does require you to be rooted. This is V.1 so there might be bugs but I haven’t found any so you should be fine. This has only been tested on US XT720 running Khalpowers miui themed V3 but technically it should work on all models of this phone with the auto focus led.
You can find more information in the application thread.

Unfortunately, it hasn't received much development attention so far… but XDA Recognized Developer laufersteppenwolf has now released an unsecured boot.img along with a CWM recovery. This is despite the bootloader being locked (which means there's no need for you to void your warranty!), and marks the first step towards custom ROM and kernel development for...
