What do i need to edit to increase the timeout of the capacitive buttons? Im sure everyone is in this boat - the backlight switches off after two seconds or so of inactivity...

Hi,

Thats an interesting one...I have no idea (until now I was a WM user), but I would be glad to kwno how to increase the timeout. Shouldn't it be locked to the display timeout? Would make sense in my opinion...

What about setting the LEDs up to show notifications for new messages, new emails, missed calls, etc.?

This is nothing about development... please post in General instead of Development forum, you'll find your answer faster there next time.

There's this... Blinker - Button LED Notification

Still early days, but if he's got direct control over those buttons he might be able to change the timeout, and the app answers zyborg's post in any case.

I can't find the timeout... I guess its the same timeout like for the Lockscreen 5000ms.
I could only do a workarround, something like everytime when the light turns off... my app turns it on. But thats a little bit dirty ;)

I imagine that this will not be easy, as there is a development thread over in the SGS forum about Back Light Notifications (BLN).

It can only be achieved through flashing a modified kernel - and as I understand it, the dev tried many different methods to get it to work until deciding on the current method.
