    I could have sworn my OG Droid did. Am I not seeing the setting? Do you need an app for that?

    I use light flow so I can have different colors/flash patterns for different apps.

    Check your settings under display and be sure pulse notification is checked.

    +1 for LightFlow. Probably the best app you can download for your Nexus imo.

    Does lightflow cause any bad reactions I heard it wasn't good when the nexus first came out. Maybe they patched it up. Also how is the battery drain with that app?

    Me too.

    All I get is a solid blue light for any message... I also have "pulse" checked.

    Do you get a light for a message? How do you set that? I have the pulse checked but nothing for texts. I use K9 for mail and it has the option for email notification lights.

    No problems here with lightflow... running the latest version... it was updated a while back for ICS support. I have always run lightflow on my Gnex which is rooted but I also ran lightflow on my GF phone before I rooted that one and it worked fine. Lightflow should work fine on 4.0.2 or 4.0.4.

    I know that. How do you get it to light up for texts and missed calls? That was my original question.

    Get lightflow and check the settings (though by default they should light up already). After that you can test each notification or just do the real test and send yourself a text and call from another phone.

    edit: I'm not 100% sure but you need to have the screen off for the notifications to work. If it isn't like that stock then I changed my settings and forgot I did.
