Default Restore the LED ring functionality on CM11

Anyone tried to install the tungsten led service apk from the factory images? I tried I got this error: INSTALL_FAILED_SHARED_USER_INCOMPATIBLE

Anyone have an ide how to install this apk? I guess it a system apk so I might have to install it in /system/app. I will try some more tonight. It would be nice to have booth the visualizer service and the volume (TungstenLEDService) displayed on the led ring. If anyone tries to install TungstenLEDSerive.apk and/or Visualizer.apk please post your results

will try with
Code:
adb push TungstenLEDService.apk /system/app
tonight when Im back from work. I post my findings here.

from http://bliny.net/blog/post/Nexus-Q-L...lications.aspx
Code:
Priority	Application	Description
0 / 100	TungstenLEDService	Master volume. Uses 100 to override everything when volume is changing and switches to 0 otherwise.
5	Visualizer	        Displays theme-based animations.
10	NetworkLedController	Network status indication.
20	HubBroker	        Bluetooth Pairing portion of the @home broker.
25	HubBroker	        NFC handler.

I did this to install the apk.

enable root over adb on developer settings

adb push TungstenLEDService.apk /sdcard/
adb shell
su
mount -o rw,remount -t ext4 /system
cp /sdcard/TungstenLEDService.apk /system/app/

set permission with filemanager

got error:
Package com.google.tungsten.ledservice has no signatures that match those in shared user android.uid.system; ignoring!

any ideas what to do? Do I need to resign tha apk with cm11 shared user android.uid.system? Where do I get that key?

I'd love to take a poke at this, but I unfortunately don't have a copy of the apk kicking around. Any ideas on locating it or did I miss my chance when I wiped it?

I think this is going to require the help of very smart people to get this working in 4.4 I want this back too as I bought a Q on ebay. It may have to be built from the ground up, with someone discovering the hooks in the old system image. I would think a toggle app would work best, where it could be turned on or off so it could work with any music player or video app.

I'm willing to pitch $15 to someone who figures this out.

Default What did the LEDs do?

Out of curiosity, what sort of functionality are you asking for from the LEDs?

Some folks, myself included, have never used the stock ROM, so are unfamiliar with what the LEDs used to do out of the box. Was it more like a normal Android LED (used principally for silent notifications), or did they do something else like dance in time to the music?

Yes, the lights moved and alternate with the beat of the music like a visual equalizer. You can probably find videos of it in action on YouTube
