    Hey all,

    I got the lollipop update this morning and overall i like it except i lost the included flashlight widget. I deleted and reinstalled the app from the update center and nothing. Any ideas?

    I'm on the T-Mobile version if that helps any.

    The stock flashlight app is for KitKat, actually Dalvik Runtime, and isn't compatible with Lollipop... You will need to find a new app/widget in the Play Store that you like to replace it.

    Lol... Doesn't work... But that got me to thinking, I browsed the /system/app directory and found a folder called LGFlashlightWidget with an APK inside of it, I installed it and now I have the old flashlight widget back!

    Did you guys check in the widget menu? Cause flashlight is actually a widget not an actual "app"
