    I want to change my notification led color from the stock green to blue. I don't want to use an application like missed call or handcent. I found http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-hacks/24695-led-indicator.html which gives a location. I looked into it and all three brightness files have values of zero. Shouldn't the green one have some other value since green is the default color? If this is what I need to edit does anyone know what I should change it to?

    Never used LED indicator but after following the link you included my sense is you need to increase from zero.

    Right I figured the same thing...but if that is indeed the only thing that controls the color of the notification led then shouldn't those three files somehow be telling it to make the led green? Why would they all be zero?

    Have no idea. However, since this is a system file I can only believe that to OS or VZW folks are reserving these particular indicators for future development

    ok heres the DL link..

    4shared.com - online file sharing and storage - download Mms.zip

    app is inside zip file..

    heres what it includes:
    stock Messaging app with extended preferences
    more notification settings
    led on/off
    - choice of 7 colors for blinking light
    vibrate on/off
    - new vibrate patterns
    -normal
    -medium vibrate
    -long vibrate
    -multiple short vibrate
    -multiple long vibrate

    also can have messaging background the stock white color OR black
    can change font size
    hide names from messages, [names dont appear only message]
    alternate message [changes position of conversation according to sender/recipent]

    will have to use adb/terminal emulator to install..

    terminal commands as follows..
    place Mms.apk onto the root of your sdcard
    open terminla emulator
    Code:
    $su
    #mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
    #cp /sdcard/Mms.apk /system/app
    #
    and your all done.. you don't type the # and $ symbols, there already in terminla i just put them so people would understand.. :)

    Someone on this forum said they download google notifier from the market and they where able to change the gmail LED from green to another color.

    I have not tried it myself. I wish the developers of BerryBuzz (came from BB) would make that app for android.

    Nice, like that. See I am using Handcent right now and love how customizable it is. Would like if I didn't have to have 2 MMS programs on here. I like the black themed apps... however if you cant change the font colors and such I don't think I'm in...

    That really is awesome...don't know where you found that or who made it but thanks. Those are some great improvements to the stock mms.apk.
