Well there was a thread that was going, but the OP decided to post warez links and it got closed. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2601850

I made an app with Tasker App Factory that does what the original post explains in a video (http://m.androidauthority.com/moto-x...cation-331710/), for those that don't have/want Tasker.

This is the first time I've shared anything that I've made in Tasker, and I can't say why it has some of the permissions it does, honestly. If anyone cna elaborate on why it does has those default permissions, that'd be great.

DISCLAIMER: As I stated above, this is my first app. I tested it on my Verizon Moto Maker edition Moto X that is rooted on 4.4. I take no responsibility for what happens to your phone or anything you do with this app. It worked fine for me, but I make no promises it will work for you.

Latest Version: https://copy.com/uUWpwXnGdJXpPIC
- Latest one adds in a few more options for how the light is displayed, and a brightness setting.

Original Version: https://copy.com/9w9TlRH2yt3L3BC

Install, run, and accept the root request (root is needed for the shell command, just as it is in the Tasker profile). It will also run the command when you boot, and starts working a few seconds after the phone turns on.

Note: If you decide you don't like it and uninstall the app, you will probably need to reboot after uninstalling to disable the LED.

Hopefully someone finds this useful. I personally don't care for it, but I like making stuff in Tasker and thought I'd give it a shot.

Installed and works. But isnt it supposed to switch off the light once the phone is charged?

It is set to display the LED when it is charging or full. When I get a few minutes I can update with other options.

very cool! Thanks!!!! Seems to be working just fine.

If you plan to add anything, a slow fade on and off would be a nice addition as well!

I don't know of a way to change the behavior of the LED other than what's there. It can only do things defined by the system software at this point. If anything else becomes available, I'll see about updating it.

Why does it need the permission to unlock the device?

I have no idea. I referenced it in the first post. Tasker seems to have that for all apps and I couldn't remove it. I have a lock screen PIN on my phone and it is not disabled by the app.
