that is an actual app, that opens up and turns on the flashlight. Does not directly turn on/off the LED.Did you see my post (above yours)? There's an app called sporingflash that allows you to do exactly what the OP wants. It's called springflash, in the big boss repo. Works great.
Or by holding down the sleep/power button for second like mine is setup. You can choose a bunch of different ways to activate springflash, volume buttons, hold/swipe the status bar, home button, or even shake the device. very cool app.No, it's not a regular app. It's used in activator and you can turn on your flash with a double click on the home button from the lockscreen.
