I've written an app that can enable and disable the blue led with a toggle. I would like to know for who this works. Please test it and tell me .

Contrary to popular believe, there are more colors than red, green and orange. My Desire's LED flashed blue and purple. Now I searched the forums and could not find any topic that confirmed this, nor on google, so just to let you guys know .

Next point on the list is finding an application that can tweak them :P

EDIT: Seeing the recent activity in this thread, I want to tell you this app was written a long time ago. It does not function on any recent roms. There are loads of other apps out there that can control your led.

Interesting. I got my Desire yesterday and installed the Touchdown app for corporate connectivity. In TD's settings you can customise the LED behaviour to select different colours (beyond red, green and amber) for different events. Tried it and it just flashed green, but why have these settings if there's not a way to do this...interesting

I have been able to replicate the bug. This is how I do it:

1. Turn on Bluetooth
2. Receive a text message while charging
3. Disconnect from charger
4. Turn off screen
5. Reconnect to charger
6. My led will glow purply
7. Disconnect the phone from the charger
8. Led starts flashing blue, orange and purple
9. Phone reboots

Taking pictures as we speak

I've added the images. It was too hard to take a picture of the blue color. But at least here is purple.

PS. images are in the first post

EDIT: Also, I should add, I have been unable to duplicate the color for a second time. No idea why it happens. Just happy I was able to get these pictures

I have tried and tried and I have been unable to replicate this bug from this point on. I'm so happy I was able to take the pictures. I think it's because of a semi-faulty flash that I have this bug. Even though the randomality of it suggests it might be more of a hardware bug. We do however now know it has a blue led too. So cyan and white should be possible as well. I just wonder, why go through the trouble of a adding a full multicolor led, if you are only going to use 3 colors of the possible 7.
