Source:
The app is open source, and licensed under GPLv3: You do not have permission to view the full content of this post. Log in or register now.

WARNING:
Using the flash at maximum brightness may cause damage to the flash. The developer of this application is not responsible for any damage caused to your device due to prolonged usage of the flash at a high brightness.

Permissions:
I request and use the following permissions:
Internet: used for ads, ads can be disabled in Action Menu.
Superuser: obviously needed to write to sysfs.
Receive boot complete: needed to reset app settings at startup. A reboot would turn off the flashlight so this is needed.
If your privacy app is picking up location as a used permission, please report a bug against it, again, I DO NOT use location.

Download:
Get it from the Play Store!:
