    What is the name of the tweak that allows for additional dimming?

    dimmer 1.4 crashes on ios 5.0.1 :( keeps restarting springboard.

    Any other tweak to reduce brightness further?

    I thought the purpose of this was negated with 5.x, hence the reason it is never been updated?
    The brightness now goes down far further than it used to on 4.x from what I recall.
    Down at minimum (on my iPad3 5.1.1 at least), I barely have any brightness at all (even if a fully darkened room).
    Am I missing something?

    I use f.lux to change the color/dim the screen. Works really well.

    Good call. Whilst it does not dim the screen per-se, I've had f.lux installed for months on my devices and it makes a significant difference to screen reading at night...
    That could be one of the reasons I don't see an issue! :D
