Motorola probably had a good reason for this limitation

Interesting, I wasn’t aware about that – so I assume, that you have observed that behavior yourself and not only read about that?

Yes I have: with a charger plugged in and the flash LED on, the phone does show the charging indicator, but the charge level is still dropping. Ampere also shows that it is in fact draining the battery:

I guess, this would be a hardware limitation, I can’t think about a setting controlling this – however, honestly, I don’t know.

Okay, thanks anyway. Motorola probably had a good reason for this limitation, such as temperature control, and overriding it would thus be risky too, even if it were possible.

Is there any way to override the flash limitation?

Firstly, a big thank you @MSe1969 for keeping my old Moto G (falcon) secure!

My question is about a specific feature: for some reason, Motorola has apparently disabled charging the device when the camera (flash) LED is on (I’ve found at least one Reddit thread confirming this). Do you happen to know if this is a hardware-level limitation, or if there’s any way to override it in the OS/kernel?

I’ve been testing the phone as a security camera, and while it’s otherwise working, in practical use not having the flash LED means having to have a separate light source, adding its own complications (timers and so on).
