If I had more time I might consider it! As a "spare time project" I can't even keep up adding the features I want to lightflow (my todo list has at least 100 things on it!)
Maybe if I managed to change to working full time on apps I will do

Is there anyway to trigger a front led notification when the back led flash is on/off?

I've run into a bit of an annoyance - I've got light flow set to flash a white LED when the device is charging, which works fine with the screen off/locked. However when I unlock the 'stock' yellowy/orange charging LED comes on.

Is it possible to turn this off? Would it be a ROM issue?

There is no charging LED in the stock ROM, you must be running a custom ROM with something in it to do this, or have some additional app.

I am running a custom ROM (Dark Jelly) - I'll search through and see if there's a setting for the LED.

Edit: found it under Interface -> System. I clearly didn't look very hard the first time >_<

Hi there, first-time poster.

Just wanted to let you know that this app is GREAT! The Nexus 4's built-in LED is rather ignored by default (Facebook of all things tipped me off that the even phone HAD a notification LED), and Light Flow really unlocks the potential of it.


Just one weird issue though. When I've got multiple notifications, Light Flow can't seem to decide which color to display when.

As a test, I've got Bluetooth (blue) and Phone Signal (white) turned on (two permanent notifications). What happens, is once I turn the screen off, it goes something like this:

Blue, blu-WHITE!, blue, blu-WHITE!, etc (although sometimes it's white being interrupted by blue instead).

Basically, it's not cycling properly, with the blue starting to come on a second time in a row, then getting interrupted by the white. Expected behavior is simply blue, white, blue, white.

I've tried playing with the notification method/frequency settings in the settings section, and the LED flash rate in the notification itself, but with no change apart from the expected behavior of those settings. Any tips on how to solve this?

Rooted Nexus 4, stock Android 4.2.2, full version of Light Flow

Thanks!


EDIT: Just to note, it's not always the same pattern. To better explain it, it seems like they're out of phase with each other. Sometimes it looks fine (like right now), sometimes one interrupts the other (like five minutes ago). Seems to vary over time, never staying consistent on the same pattern for more than a few minutes at a time.

That's true. I'd like to get it blue, white, blue white and technically I could but that would mean every flash off the led I'd need to partially wake the phone to run the code to switch the led off or on. The current method just issues an on/off timing to the led driver via android and therefore only needs to change less frequently. I've found choosing a faster flash rate looks better as the difference between 4 or 5 quicker flashes is much less noticeable. I've one or two ideas in the future I'll probably experiment with this and improving it, but very few phones actually pay any attention to the actual timings sent to the led. e.g. motorola phones ignore it and have a fixed led flash rate. The galaxy nexus has a few speeds but it's not really user customisable (there's probably about 5 different pre-defined speeds which the driver will just pick the nearest speed). It's the same for the S3 and note2.
