led light used as a flash light

Has anyone figured out how to turn the camera led flash on for a light.

 

My wifes htc is able to use the led for a light at night to check your keys,read a map,etc

 

also my uncles trac phone has an led light to be used as a flashlight.just wondered if any modders were working on this.(it's pretty bad when a trac prepaid phone has this feature and my uncle picks on me cause my bb can't do it.he calls it a crapberry.

Tell your uncle to get a life! Ask him to send you an instant message on his TracPhone. Smiley Tongue

As far as flashlight on the Blackberry goes, you can go into the video camera and enable to light to be on.

Blackberry operating system 4.5 has video recorder.

 

If you go to Options and About, see what is says after v. (on the 3rd line).

 

If you're not on 4.5, you shoulud be able to update your device to 4.5.

As long as you backup your data before you perform the upgrade, you'll be fine.

 

By default, during the Upgrade of the OS, desktop manager will backup the data and restore it after the upgrade.

 

You will see vast improvements with the upgrade.
