do you need to reflash or is updating enough? I'm not able to locate a flashlight app, either in the menu, nor in the software manager

also, there is a sizing issue where apps ignore the existence of both the top and bottom bars and just grow their UI to whatever size anyway. the bottom bar is ignored by most apps, and the top bar is ignored by most pop-up windows

edit: to add the flashlight app, install "flashlight" using pacman. it's located in the phosh repository. note: it appears to be non-functional

You need a updated kernel to use the flashlight.

does the kernel not update from the /pine64/ repo or do you ship different kernels with the builds?

flashing the new image does indeed get the flashlight app to work

The latest image is using /pine64/ repo, and the kernel is from there.

About flashlight, you might have probably used an old version of the flashlight which doesn't have udev rules.
