Does installing android on Glo allow greater dimming of the front-light?

The subject says it all. The Glo has been criticized by some people on the grounds that the lowest setting of the light is too bright in a pitch-black room. Does installing Android allow the light to made dimmer?

Its a hardware-wise problem

I believe some people have added an extra resistor to the circuit board to change the brightness.

Thanks. What about the new Aura? Can that be dimmed really low under Android?

The new Aura cannot run Android as of now, but the frontlight does go dimmer than the Glo.
