Hey kimmoli! Thank you so much for this feature you made! Once I installed it years ago on my Jolla1, every time I was seeing the flash blinking --and there were times that in a noisy environment it was the only way to see I have a call-- I was really appreciated it!

Unfortunately it doesn't work for XperiaX :( I even download the source code to give it a try to fix it myself , but since I don't have the background on developing, I didn't make it much

Can you please PLEASE update it for the XperiaX? Or update it in a way that will read a config file and anyone in the feature devices can set the path / brightness / etc like here:

flasher.setPath("/sys/kernel/debug/flash_adp1650/mode", "1", "0");

Once more, thank you :]
