Wink Multi-Coloured LED bar for Xperia U

Just asking if its too fruity to ask wether or not there is an app out there to make the Xperia U have a multicoloured led bar constant as opposed to a single colour.

There is no app for it but u can do it manually by:

going to /sys/class/leds/ and changing the value of file "brightness" from 0-255 by openinng it in file editor.

there will be 3 folder per led bulb side , like :
m-key- blue
m-key-red
m-key-green

like this m, r, l
m=middle
r=right
l=left

change values of the"brightness" of say random folders . example:
set value of brightness in "m-key-blue to 100
--------------------m-key-red to 90

and for l-key-green to 80
red to 90


play with it randomly and u will get what u want .............

Also found this for what it's worth.

play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=nl.rckmn.leds.u.ctrl

Quirky but might be useful to some.

Default This seems very helpful but how do you get to the 'sys' folder in the first place?

Hi! I used Root Explorer and mounted R/W, went to leds folder, and let's say, I edit blue brightness, I sucessufully get the color diferente when I save, but then when Led goes off, comes back with the previous default color. I'm a using Infinity ROM if that makes a difference...
