Has anybody figured out how to make the led blink faster on the bionic?

    Apparently the apps that other phones use such add light flow do not work on bionic and usually i'm very good asst figuring out how to accomplish any task I really try on Android but I've had this device for 6 months now and I've still not found a solution to this annoying problem that I voiced on day one.I need to bee able to glance at my bionic and immediately know if I have a message.with my OG,I could just glance at it and know right away but worth this bionic I'll start to look away believing I don't have a text then out of the corner of my eye I'll catch the light blink.its too damn slow.I want it to blink fast over and over.on my OG this was extremely simple and I could easily change the blink rate and the color but for some reason the bionic doesn't like to be told what to do.please expose any type OS,I just started giving Swype a chance as my everyday keyboard.not so sure about using one keyboard for everything....

    I use Light Flow on my stock Bionic and it works just fine. Plenty of options to change the LED color and speed up the cycle rate. I did the Lite version, but after using it for a day, I paid for the App since it did exactly what I wanted to do, plus you can customize your color too if you like.

    I know it kinda forces you to, but is it possible for those that it's not working, that you don't have Light Flow enabled/on in the accessibility settings?

    I'm using light flow lite. Using standard mode, I have access to all the colors, but not flash frequency. Using direct mode lets me use always on, but only 3 colors. I have root and accessibility mode enabled. Is the paid version more effective?

    If you buy the full version I believe there is an option for led flash rate.

    Let me rephrase that. I have access to all the colors and access to the blink rate option in light flow, but my Bionic's LED still blinks at the same slow 4 second-ish rate no matter what option I choose in light flow.

    I can confirm that the paid version doesnt change the blink rate either. Strange that some people can get it to work!

    It's true, Lightflow changes the color but does not change the LED Speed. When I have a text message, I want that LED Light to blink like there's no tomorrow!
