    hello,

    is there currently any way to turn off the LED lights for the home/back/etc buttons?

    i used to use Simple LED toggle, but that no longer works on the HTC Incredible. the app has been removed the marketplace.

    another app was around called LED Hack, but that's been removed as well.

    Is there any way?

    A manual way to turn off the leds is to open your phone up and disconnect the led ribbon cable. I found this out when I broke my screen and installed a replacement. When I was changing the old screen out, I accidentally broke the fragile ribbon cable that goes to the leds. I don't miss those light, because they were always too bright at night and couldn't be dimmed. Here's what it looks like:

    There is a way to turn the LEDs off right from the settings. I used to do that every time I watched Netflix videos.

    I'll refresh my memory in the morning and report back...

    The LED Light Flow has an option to "control backlight" but I am not sure what / how it will effect / work on the Incredible...

    Theres a cool app called RootDim that will allow you to customize the home/back buttons plus you can choose colors for you led's. Your phone does need to be rooted though. Hope this helps!

    theres an app called screen filter, it will let u disable the lights on those buttons, its meant to create a widget to dim ur screen without having to dig thru all the menus but u can set the widget to leave ur screen at 100% n just shut off the backlight on the buttons
