Verizon LG G2
Stock/Rooted

Up until yesterday front LED notifications worked flawlessly. I decided to backup my current ROM and ever since the notifications have not worked. I get the vibration (even custom vibrations that I have setup) but no LED.

Confirmed:
Screen is off
Notifications are turned on
LED works for incoming & missed calls


What I've tried:
Restore the backup from last night (no luck)
Uninstall/Reinstall GoSMS and restored GoSMS settings (no luck)
Uninstall/Reinstall GoSMS only - from a fresh Play Store download (no luck)
Completely uninstalled GoSMS and reverted to stock message app (LED notification works)

-Do not have LightFlow installed. Did try it a few months ago, couldn't get it to behave the way I wanted.
-No other LED "controls" installed.
-Gmail LED notifications not working either

As previously stated, no changes to the device other than backing up the ROM. No new downloads, customizations, etc.

Dear God...I'm going mad, any advice?

Thanks for the reply. Can you be a little descriptive? I don't see anything about 3rd party apps in the Settings > Display Section (or in the Notification Light section).
