I'm not very familiar with the coding, so unfortunately i'm not able to answer that question.

From what i have heard and read from others, putting the headlight into Auto mode will stop flickering.

Not really true. the flickering is caused by small power pulses to check the exterior lights. LED lights require so little power and are instant on, so these small pulses of power cause the LED's to turn on for a split second. Halogen bulbs take much longer to turn on so the pulses of power do not cause the filament to glow.
