I have a P920 and I installed this app, but it does not run. I make a missed call to myself, but the leds do not light.

Thank you very much!

Your English is fine
Have you rooted your phone ? You could check out the thread in the Optimus 3D-subforum, there is currently another developer working with the app for the P920 and he might be able to help you out.

That sounds strange, it seems the Superuser-app might be configure wrong for the app. If you open the Superuser-app then you can perhaps change so it wont refuse permissions for the app.

This message appears everytime I open the app. What could be the problem here?

Thanks in advance.

What happens when you click OK ? Does it say anything or does it seem to work normally ? Did you ever get a question about allowing Superuser-permissions ?
CM7 have their own notification built-in so there might be a conflict, you could try and disable it.

I do, however, have one problem maybe you or the other fine members of this forum can help me with.
I have a notification ringtone set to go off every 5 minutes after a missed notification. Works great, I love it, wish I had it earlier. However, in the morning it goes off because of the battery 100% notification. Is there a fix, workaround, or setting that I'm missing? (I've searched quite a bit but only see discussions with the SGS2) As long as the circuitry shuts down, I don't care about that notification.

I never experienced this. Are you using a third party-app that puts a notification in the notification bar when the battery is fully charged ? If so you might have to exclude that activity (Notifications -> Exclude activities). If you're uncertain which activity it is you can log notifications in the Advanced-menu and then check the log when it happened again.

without this, i would say its a wonderful valueable app ,with it have to deinstall the app ):-

thanks

The accelerometer can't be disabled. It is used by the app to determine if the phone is being used. For example, you're writing an e-mail on your phone and gets an SMS. At this point the app enables the accelerometer to detect user activity, if it detects activity (by movement of the phone) it disables the accelerometer and doesn't do anything more. If the accelerometer were to be disabled it would start the notification as soon as the screen turns off since it doesn't know if the phone has been used at any point after the notification has been received, which would be quite bothersome.
It might not be the best solution but I haven't found anything else and it works pretty well.

Normally this shouldn't use a lot of battery at all though, since when it is started it is usually only enabled for a couple of seconds. Does it use an unusual amount of battery for you ?

thx for your answer.

yes, in my app-testings (around 10 minutes, with a reboot) it used 1m30s cpu time ?!?
strange, do you thinking too?
for me it was too much.

any workarounds?

why, the app knows -
if the phone is in suspend mode (do led blinking job)
the phone is on (no led blinking job)

no need for extra accelerometer usage, or whats my fault ?

Right, so I've started logging a couple of days ago. (BTW thank you for that feature.) So far I have not received any anomalies but I will let you know what I do find.

Hmm, how did you perform this test ? Was it during normal usage or after you received a notification ? What did you use to find out the cpu-time value ?
If you listen to all activities there might be some app that frequently updates the notification bar and causes the accelerometer to start unnecessarily. Try enabling the notification log in the Advanced-settings and see what it says after some time.

It is possible to not use the accelerometer, but I can give two examples where it is useful.
For example, lets say you have a screen timeout for one minute and have the phone on silence. You simply leave it on your desk and walk away from it for a while. If you receive a message before the display turns off, it wouldn't be notified since we don't know if the phone is used or not. The accelerometer tells us that the phone isn't moving so the notification will start when the screen turns off, and don't start if you pick up the phone before the screen turns off.
Another example would be if you receive a message for an app that for some reason turns on the screen (like SMS did in 2.2). When this happens the notification event may be received after the screen has turned on. Fortunately we can find out if we're in the lock screen and can use that. Unfortunately though not all third party lock screen sets this value correctly and we don't know again if the phone is used or not. The accelerometer would help out again.

So in short the accelerometer helps, but it shouldn't be a battery drainer, so it might be some configuration issue. I'm happy to help you out and try to find out the problems.

If you really think it is a big issue though I could add a setting to disable the accelerometer completely.

i'm thinking, i'll need to do more testings on this over a longer period of time.

the cpu-values(runtime) i got from CM7's nightly builtin akku consume status (in settings).

if needed, i make here a request to you for one appbuild without accelerometer support.


super your support here - thank you

I have an LG G2X running CM7 and I've been having an issue.
I've changed the settings in the app so that the leds should be constant when I receive a notification, but they still continue to flash instead. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app as well as clearing out the app's cache, but nothing has solved the problem. I even tried earlier versions with no luck. I wouldn't mind them flashing instead of staying constant, except that when I receive a notification at work, the leds will be flashing for a few hours before I can check them, and by that time, it has severely drained my battery.

I have the same issue as "73n5h1." I am running MIUI and the flashing really drains my battery like 30% in over an hour... regardless if I program it to be on constant....

Also...

I am unstalling the app because of battery drain... after uninstalling and rebooting... the app is still working?? After a call or text the 4 keys still light up? I am using MIUI and I used a new (MIUI) rom and it still does it...? I restored back to original tmobie g2z stock gingerbread and it doesnt work but when I use MIUI it the LED notification still blinks?? What is wrong? Thanks!

Both CM7 and MIUI have their own built-in notification using the LEDs (I haven't tested them myself, but I'm quite certain they do). So using my app without disabling theirs first will make everything behave strangely. Since both their notification system and my app wants to use the LEDs it would most likely cause a larger battery drain than usual. So I suggest you disable the built-in notification in the ROM and use my app or the other way around.

So to answer your questions I think that for CM7 their notification system will override the setting in my app, causing the LEDs to flash, and for MIUI the LEDs will flash without my app because of their built-in notification system. And that the battery drainage is because both the ROM and my app is keeping the phone awake making changes to the LEDs.

Since I haven't tried these ROMs I don't know how to disable their notification system so unfortunately I can't help you with that.

I hope this explains the issues you're experiencing !

So, after excluding a few suspicious activities and running it for a few days the problem seems to be fixed.

Hello,

i use this app on my LG P920 with the latest
GB update from LG (rooted).
I use LED Notification only ..

Sometimes when i push the Powerbutton to
turn the Phone off,(EDIT: also if i leave it in lockscreen
and it turns off the screen after a few seconds) it leave the LEDs on till
i turn the phone on and off again.

I didint have this before i installed this app.
