Flashlight / Torch Functionality - E71

Has anyone tried controlling the E71's photo led for use as a flashlight / torch? I have found some great Symbian applications that enable this functionality in N Series devices (NTorch Lite, David Siorpaes Flashlight), but nothing for E Series. Any recommendations?

I've just upgraded to an E71 from an SE W800i. The E71 blows my old phone away but I do miss its torch. Sounds silly, but it was so handy.

Hi,

This function is available in E71 via a freeware that can be downloaded from the link below:

But this app enables only the screen, and not the flash of the camera.

S60SpotOn will do the trick.

Some say, the flash leds might not live long if they're used for such purpose.
Has anyone experienced so?

No idea about the LED lifetime.

 

S60Spot works on my E71. You need to date back the phone for the installation (expired certificate).

 

The smartphoneware.com app does not enable the flash LED on my phone :smileysad: Would have been cool to have a shortcut, which S60Spot does not provide.

I sure hope the flash dies an expedited natural death. It's been totally useless - especially in close-up shots with reflective surfaces.

 

Using it mostly to wear down the batt - the flash eats up 1W when it's on.

E71! Lovin' It! :smileyvery-happy:

You have to know how to hack your phone, and learn how to apply for a software signing certificate so that you can download unsigned nokia apps, sign them yourself, and download them onto your phone. I signed that S60SpotOn file and installed on my phone, worked great.
