I just got my nexus 5 last night. This isn't my first android device so I unlocked and rooted it.

I installed gravity box and everything, and noticed that my led was not blinking for texts. I tried multiple texting apps and the end result is the same...it does not blink.

Now for the funny part - when I use test notifications within evolveSMS the light blinks, just not when I receive any notifications.

Does anyone have any ideas? The led is checked under display settings. I am on stock 4.4.2, with elementalX kernel.

Thank you!

Hmm does it have to do anything with kernel settings? Have you tried your notification LED before on stock kernel? Was it the same??

I'm actually heading home now to check that out. I haven't heard any issues with elementalX kernel though.

I'll keep you posted. Thank you!
