Sony Mobile is introducing Night Light mode officially into the firmware of the Xperia XZ2 and Xperia XZ2 Compact. However, if you’re not planning to improve, and would love entry to the function then you definately may be in luck. A workaround now exists to allow the Night Light choice inside the ‘Display’ settings. We have examined this and it really works as supposed – we’ve missed the choice because it last appeared in the Xperia Concept firmware.
There are a few circumstances although, 1) it is advisable be running a Sony Xperia machine which has obtained the March 2018 Android security patch, and 2) it is advisable be snug utilizing ADB to ship instructions to your phone from a PC (neither root or an unlocked bootloader are wanted).
As lengthy as you meet the circumstances above, merely head here and extract the solely APK file that’s situated inside the bundle. Install the APK file onto your phone. Then, join your phone to the PC with ADB and sort the following:
adb shell cmd overlay allow –person 0 android.res.night time
Reboot the phone and Night Light ought to now be accessible. Let’s hope that Sony makes this function customary throughout all Xperia firmware in the future.
The Night Light choice could be enabled for Xperia customers with the March 2018 security firmware update
The Night Light toggle can also be out there
Thanks Geen and Mirko!
