Which android version?
Which label is displayed at the left of the greyed switch?
Did the app ask for "Notification access permission" at first run?

Open Options --> Lock screen and security --> Other security settings and check manually the notification access permission (if it's disabled, activate it now) and let me know.
Thanks

SM-J710F model right?
Chipset Exynos or Snapdragon?
Stock ROM, Custom TWLauncher rom, AOSP rom... or what?
(I'm sorry for so many questions, but the more I know and the more it becomes easy to solve the problem, I hope)

Seems like something go wrong during the front flash detection phase.
This app uses the standard Android Camera2 API to get access to the flash.
So, is something strictly related to your device model and Samsung hardware/firmware.
Maybe is the Exynos chipset variant... not so easy to investigate but I will try.

Thanks

FrontFlash Notification
Issues & known bugs:
  • on some Exynos chipset based devices, take control over the front flash fails. Check yours by yourself and let me know. (I'm working to understand how to fix it)

This will be very useful on my Honor 7 since the notification LED is so small it's almost invisible.

Haven't been able to get it to work yet though.

First issue I got was that the service was running but not enabled. I figured out it was due to the "suspend on low battery" setting even though my battery was at 80%.
I unticked that and now the service is running and enabled.
I'm trying to get a notification when receiving an e-mail(gmail) but nothing is happening. Gmail is not in the possible exclusion list at all, maybe that has something to do with it?

Edit: It works for other apps like the calendar app.

Thanks for the work so far.

FrontFlash Notification
Just an update for Exynos chipset based device users... the front flash detection issue is not related to the chipset.
For some strange reasons (don't ask me why), on the new devices series (Exynos of course), Samsung has implemented only partially the Camera2 API for the developers. Hardware level: LIMITED (partial Camera2 support)

This is why at the time been my app can't use the front flash on your device.
In the next few days I'm going to produce a new 1.7 version, where if Camera2 fails the app takes control over the camera and his front flash using the old Android API.
Based on the first tests, fortunatelly this seems to fix the problem.

Keep in touch
