    I'm referring to the white LED that is next to the micro USB port.

    I put my phone on my night stand and that is a very "bright" light in a dark room. Is there anyway I can disable it.

    I'm rooted running Cynogen 5.0.8 if that helps any

    Thanks

    I believe it is not software based, but actually running right off the cord, meaning that you cannot disable it. I wish you could, annoying when I go to bed, I put my hat over it every night haha.

    Could always paint over it with thick black paint or something? I might try this.

    Small piece of black electrical tape, or face it away from you, or ...

    Get a dock, in which case the light is pointing down into the dock and not seen.

    I have a similar situation with the power cord on a new Dell laptop I just got, except that the LED is actually in the end of the power cord. I just wrapped a rubber band around it a few times and it blocks the light. I'm sure the same thing would work if you wrap a rubber band around the end of your phone charger - Build it up enough to block the LED on the phone.

    I'd seriously just use black paint on the end with an artists brush - solved.

    With a name like "smokiedabong" you know he's about to give a great idea. I'd say go buy a laser and do it!!! Haha, and if it doesn't work, hell, you have an awesome laser now!

    you could use another charging system for the phone that uses the same connection. I am using my old LG Decoys charger and it works great
