    I updated to the unofficial GB leak a few weeks ago (4.5.573) and am rooted on Droid X. Ever since then, I get no LED lights on notifications for texts, email, missed calls, etc., even when I set the options to do so. I also notice that since the GB update, whenever I connect to a call, a blue light flashes that never flashed before.

    Is this a GB bug? Something I can change? And what is the blue light?

    Thanks for any help. This is really bugging me.

    Have you tried "lightflow" from the market?

    I was going to but I just downloaded an LED Tester and I get no lights at all. Maybe my LED is toast? I find it weird that it would burn out at the the second I installed GB but maybe. Although I do still get the weird flash of blue when I make a call? I just made a call and the blue light flashes. There must be SOMETHING going on in there. LOL!

    I too get a blue light when connecting a call, also a blue flash at boot but I'm running the latest leak (4.5.591). The rest of my notifications are fine, and lightflow seems to work quite well with any build I've tried (even gave me color options I didn't know I had) good luck :)

    Only issue of have with lightflow is that the notification lights don't flash unless the screen is off (suppose with the screen on you'd be able to see notification in top bar)

    thank you. I did download lightflow and it seems to be working. I am getting LED flashes now for missed calls and texts! And in different colors. How so very strange that I had to have a 3rd party app to restore LED function after GB. Oh Android how you fill my day. :D Sometimes with joy, sometimes not.

    .588 is the latest leak that came out about 2 weeks ago.

    I am not updating to .588 or latest. My tether still works so I'm not moving for awhile.

    I tried lightflow I don't get any lights at all while screen is off. When I do a "test" and shut off the screen i see little flickers of the LED but it looks like the light isn't getting enough charge.

    Any other suggestions? I've been missing many many texts/calls because my LED wont light up and its EXTREMELY annoying. Especially when my phone is fairly brand new (Few days old) I didnt even have it on froyo for more than 5 minutes when I got it.
