    I was wondering if there is any hack to have the LED come on when you recieve a text, email, etc. A lot of the games I play take away the status bar an if I have my notification volume on low, I won't be able to here if I recieve a text. Before 2.1, the LED light would come on no matter what so I would know when I received a message. Is there any hack to change this back to how it was in 2.01?

    CM6 has this feature built-in, as well as the ability to customize which color to flash for a notification for which app (including apps that do not natively support a color selection).

    CM and Sapphire are the only 2 ROMS I know of that allow this. You will have to go with a ROM built from source (which CM and Sapphire are) as google disabled this a "feature" in 2.1.

    There is a free app called "Blink - Flash LED in Your Way" that lets you set colors for different notifications.
    SMS, MMS, Missed Calls, Incoming Calls, battery & memory. I set a different color for each so if I have it on vibrate and don't feel it, I can see instantly I have something waiting.
