    Notification Light (LED) Color

    Hopefully somebody more historically vested in Motorola devices can chime in here (it's been since pre-Android that I owned a Moto-Device). Android use has been limited to Windows phone(s) dual booting to Android, plus work I've done to root/load Android on wife and daughters Nook-En-Droids.

    Razr M was my jump-in point for committing to Android on a daily basis to handle all my MS-Outlook and MS-Office requirements on a phone.

    So, I've been seeing different colored LED light colors emitting from the upper left-hand screen (left of the silver Motorola Badge on front side, and left of what I believe to be the light sensor). I've asked others to look at LED color (including Verizon reps) and they say it's just my eyes, the light is green either on/off. I see Green normally, but sometime looks Blue, even though others say it's green ...?

    My guess so far is there are multiple different color notifications (maybe more based on device setup ...?):
    LED On = New Notification
    Green = Email, Calls, Txt's
    Blue = Facebook & maybe various other "Social Network Msg's (Facebook, TwiDroid, Google+, LinkedIn, MySpace, etc.)
    Red = Low Battery (thanks calbrs04 - forgot that one)
    White = While charging, indicates not enough power to turn on.

    I would appreciate and additions and/or corrections.

    Thanks,

    PS: as additional LED colors and/or notification indicators are posted, I will update this OP#1 (along with credit to appropriate member) as a way of consolidating the related info into one location for future viewers.

    Wow, 250+ views with no reply's - then BAM some great replies - THANKS guys/gals

    sherri,
    Thanks for your reply.
    Does "app Light Flow" require root?

    That's a lot of LED colors to keep track of ... is there user program-ability to choose less colors (user programmable consolidation), say maybe 2-3 colors?

    Thanks calbrs04,
    So we have three confirmed LED Colors (I had forgotten about the Red - battery-power-tuning on my device has been getting me dawn to dust without Red for last few days).

    +1 for Light Flow & it does not require root...you can try out the "free" version to see if it will work for you - I have used this app on multiple devices for sometime...

    I also have white, yellow and purple on mine as well using K9 mail. K9 let's you choose the LED color. My guess is the XT907 might use an RGB LED so many colors are available.

    Agree, but....seems that any color other than basic blue, green, red, white appear "odd" on my RAZR Max. For example, purple appears as one half light red and the other half blue. Yes I know red and blue make purple, but these colors are not well "mixed, blended". What I get is basically the appearance of 2 diodes side by side trying to appear as one color.
    Also noted this on my DROID 2 global. Maybe FoxKat can chime in and explain how an led emits different colors and how light flow app is supposed to work in his usual "here's the scoop in such a way any 10 year old can understand" way.

    Contents of this post specific to Light Flow app (not Motorola LED control:
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...flowlite&hl=en

    I installed Light Flow Lite last night (thx sherri). Looks like a great app, for those who like in-depth amounts of control features ...

    Answers to my previous posted questions:
    Yes, LED Notification Color is user programmable (a LOT of options both color & notification type).
    No, device does NOT need Root

    Last night I was not able to get the app functional on my Razr M.
    Allowed in Accessibility/Lite Flow Lite - On (toggled this on & off a few times)
    Lite Flow Lite/Settings/Direct mode (initially off, toggled this on & off)
    Lite Flow Lite/Tools/All enabled LEDs Test (suppposed to dummy test all colors enabled)
    Results:
    No LED colors flash in Test above.
    Incoming Notifications DO NOT light the LED
    I shut off the device a couple times and also toggled on/off a few of the settings in attempt jump-start the app to no avail.

    This Morning (after reviewing all settings from last night - with no changes) Orange LED lit with an incoming email. Problem is that in Lite Flow Lite/Notifications for E-mail is/was set to Green (actually Lime), which was the default. So, looks like the app started working but LED color vs. user setting (or maybe factory default setting) appear to be wonky.

    Any comments would be appreciated.

    Update Results/Answers/Solutions:
    I changed the Lime notification selection to Magenta and this worked. After playing around a little with the LED Notification Color Selections, it appears to me that the Lime Color does not work in this app. I am thinking that possibly this is is actually related to the hardware (possibly the Razr M Notification LED can not or does not differentiate what Lime is and is defaulting to Orange). I have opted to change default Lime Colors to Green and this appears to work.

    If other Razr M users have experienced this issue and/or other LED Colors that do not display properly please post here. If this is an issue with using the Lite Version vs. Paid app, please post (I would assume that if this was a paid-app issue that the option to select colors that are "pay only" would be grayed out like a number of other features in the Lite version).

    If there is sufficient info posted related to Light Flow (like various LED Colors and/or features that do not work on the Razr M), that would be helpful to other users, I will consolidate the info into the first post of this thread (with credit notation to the posting member), so that users looking for info on LED Notification option will be able to review options before spending too much time hunting around.

    Update:
    Running Light Flow Lite all day today
    I only see one LED color (Green for emails)
    Appears there is no "social networking" option for LED Notification.
    Tools/Enable LEDs Test (still not working)
    * Two references below relate to Factory Razr M LED Notifications
    * It appears to me that the Factory Razr M LED Notifications provide more usability than Light Flow Lite in that
    * Email, Social Networking, Txt Msg, Low Battery, etc. are functional as illustrated in OP#1 running Factory Settings.
