    Whats the final say on LED notifications these days?

    I cant pin point exactly when I lost my LED notifications. I think it was sometime around a Froyo update. It seems like some lost it around that time too, some still have it, some have recently lost it. Can we get back LED notifications or was there something changed so that they just dont exist anymore?

    I have LED notifications, but they're a bit touchy. sometimes if I 'clear' an active voicemail I won't get LEDs for anything like texts or missed calls until I reboot. when I gave Pete's stock/root build a shot, the LEDs worked fine there... no real customization though on GB, so I'm back with the classic CM

    Thanks for the response. Yea Im not really sure what broke my LED. I am pretty sure they were not working back when I was just rooted stock... hadnt even flash any custom ROM at that point. Hopefully someone having the issue I am having finds a fix one of these days.

    All my notifications worked fine with bb.6.2.1 and pe4.2, both froyo roms. I tried both pe5 and gpa gingerbread roms and had poor results with notifications. There are a few things that just work differently or inconsistently with GB that finally made me nandroid back to pe4.2. All my notifications are working again the way I prefer.

    They DO work the reason they go away is when the screen is unlocked or turned on, turn off "unlock screen" and "screen on" in your sms app and youll atleast get a blinking light of your color

    it seems there is only 1 set blink-rate,

    the new notifications act as if their an independent process from the application itself rather than a process controlled by the app, this would make sense that some options work and others dont.

    you can get Light Flow and set options to your liking....just a thought.
    Go to work, send your kids to school, follow fashion, act normal, walk on the pavement, watch t.v., save for your old age, obey the law, don't ask questions, and repeat after me.....I am free.

    It's more because the changes made in Gingerbread for notifications is that the LED notifications are ended once the screen is on. So for most people (if the ROM install worked right), turning off the "unlock screen"/"screen on" setting in Handcent/Chomp/SMS Popup or whatever third-party app they use, should work. If the screen is on when you get the text, no LEDs at all.

    I have followed this issue for a while now and believe me I have tried messing with every setting in handcent. Also, got rid of handcent completely and tried stock messaging app. Have used things like Light Flow before. Nothing works. All settings are set properly (so in theory led should work)... screen is off, I receive an sms for example... still no led notifications.
