Do you guys think the ios11 Screen Record feature would work for that? I haven’t tried it yet. Maybe I should. That would be the simplest way to record/save the flash program.

That’s a great idea!

That’s a good idea! Only concern I can see with that is the file size taking up much more space? The original file is tiny because it’s just a pixel blown up. But if you start recording the screen, the file size is going to be a lot bigger. Anyways I might just try that...

I think it would basically just be a 15 second video, or however long it is. If you are pressed for space it might be a problem but to save a couple videos for different levels shoudn’t take too much storage.

I actually wasn’t clever enough to think of it. Haha. I was showing this 17 yr old kid I know who likes to check out my lights and knives the BOSS and website and he says to me ‘Hey why don’t you just use the screen record on your iphone so you can have different levels if you need to change it out in the woods where you don’t have cell service?’ I thought Oh man how did I not think of that?! Kids these days hey?

Haha yeah I like Android’s flexibility. You’re right that it’s the file size is still small. It’s about 2mb when you use the screen recorder. The original file is 25kb though, so technicalllly that’s like 70 times bigger lol. Not a big deal with most devices now which have a ton of storage, but would’ve mattered on my old Galaxy S4. I was living on the edge with like 20mb left most of the time...

How does a Boss owner change settings if/when internet goes down (ei. SHTF situation) and Boss owner has no operational pc. Not such a "boss" flashlight then is it?

honestly in a shtf setting you should really only have one MAYBE two modes. You wouldn’t be programming your light in that scenario. Doesn’t matter what driver or LE yiure using.

I did this during Hurricane Irma. Reprogramming was available even with no internet.
