An app that uses the charging LED to show the current CPU load.
Source is up here
Video (outdated now):
Here are the colors, and the default order in which they are used: (colors may vary depending on the device)
The order of colors and threshold is configurable.
CPU% - COLOR <3 - Off 3-15 - blue 16-40 - green 41-75 - amber >=76 - red
The logcat will tell you which LEDs were found and if root is needed.
Download the apk and install it. The app runs as a service in the background.
On Froyo you can email it to your gmail address, Gmail will show you an "install" option.
adb install -r CPUStatusLED.apk
Todos, & Known 'bugs'
- The Red LED does not stay lit on the N1, It always blinks by design.
-Props to Bernhard.R.Suter creator of NetMeter, on which this was built upon. [project page]
-The awesome aChartEngine graphing API.

The signing key may have changed, so if you have any errors updating please uninstall the old first.
Remove NetMeter+LED or NetmeterPlus before installing CPUStatusLED or they will both set the LEDs and cause confusion.
