I see it has been done for the international version I9000, but our buttons are different. http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=772672

I think it would be great if the home key backlight pulsed on notification.
Anyone know how to implement something like this?

A small led pulsing would go a long way toward saving my precious battery life, instead of periodically turning the screen on to check for new messages.

Yes. There is backlight notification mod for our phone. However, I tried several versions(10-32seconds) and could not get the backlight to turn off until I cleared the notification. I believe it only works with certain kernels and ROMs.

It can be found here http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=826278

I have that installed, it just keeps the lights on longer for the softkey buttons.
What I would like to see is one of the softkeys like home pulse with the screen off when a new notification arrives, like the nexus one trackball notifications.

Anyone?

Where would you suggest the question be posted. It's not a general question and it's not a theme/app...maybe BLN is now an accessory?

How about instead of posting questions that are already answered... you search. Much easier for everyone else to deal with.

What is this "attitude" crap? You're the one breaking the rules of the forum. Don't bitch when people point this out.
