Initial Release
Known Issues:
- There is a delay of 3 seconds before it starts flashing selected color at the moment this a because the system will turn it off because it thinks its turning off the white led.
Caveat
- The system will override the flashing if another system notification is set
- You will see a single white flash before the app flashes the correct color, this is the system doing this.
Todo:
- Add check for Nexus One
Requirements:
- Su/Rooted phone
- Nexus One
- Notifications turned off in your SMS/MMS app

Use at your own risk, I cannot be held responsible for loss or damage etc etc yada yada yada.

wow this is pretty amazing. the new colors are awesome! definitely would donate!
suggestions; alternate colored notification bar icon colors (ie the ones found in Handcent), and later, i know its still only beta, email and gmail support if that would even be a possibility.
Besides those minor aesthetic opinions, it works like it says. Switch of notifications in chompsms, handcent or whatever you have including the stock app, set up the preferences in this one and it works brilliantly!
thanks for your hard work!

Works so far.

Im still unclear on the default icon in notification bar. Is it mandatory for it to appear there ?

Reason being I have handcent setup with different icons/sounds for individuals.
When a text comes in the trackball works fine but I get both the default messaging app Icon in notification bar AND handcent.
I tried turning off the default messaging but it pops up with trackball.

This is a great little app. Thanks. Do you have plans to enable it for email alerts as well?

Thanks for your kind comments.

I'm looking to implement this at a lower level than app, so we can get different notifications. Currently the system can override the trackball.

I'm open to icon/image donations (via pm please to keep the thread tidy) I'll give you credit if used.

Id much much prefer to get this working on Email /VM/Missed calls etc than worrying about aesthetics at this point.

Hace you contacted any of the rom guys to see if it can be dug into a deeper level and work in a fuller capacity ?

+1 on that- to be able to apply this across the whole rom would be fantastic.

this is awesome- i think it needs the ability to not have the icon show in status bar though due to some people (me being one) who use handcent personalised notifications.

now, where is your donate button?

I'm looking into that. The problem is the current codebase only has a method flashing the trackball white. We need to hook right into the core notification system.

I can add an option but i think you will end up with a situation where the trackball does not stop flashing. Because its my notification, when it get selected/acknowledged my Cancel "callback" method is actioned.
