Hey guys i found this app using which we can use our touch buttons as LED notifications
It's available for free from Google play store

Description from play store:

Touch LED Notifications
This application uses the touch LED buttons to show if there is any missed notifications by turning them on and off. It is enabled by default and will autostart on boot but has to be run once after installation to start the service.

Supported devices:
* LG Optimus 2X/T-Mobile G2X/Star (P990/P999/SU660)
* LG Optimus Black (P970)
* LG Optimus 3D (P920)
* LG Nitro (P930)
* LG Optimus ME (P350)
* LG Marquee (LS855)
* LG Prada 3.0 (P940)

Other phones might also work if they're similar to one of the supported devices. Even though a device is listed above your rate of success may vary depending on ROM and/or if you require root. It may also not work perfectly due to various limitations of the phone.

If you get a message about rooting, you have to root your device to get LED notifications to work. This is not something I've chosen to do, it is because the devices does not have the correct permissions and root is needed to correct them. If you wish to root your device you're doing so at your own risk.

Translations of the app is very welcome. If you wish to translate please drop me an e-mail and I will give you the link to the strings.xml-file.

Gmail 2.3.5+ no longer works with the built-in Gmail-check. To get it to work again Gmail has to be disabled in Notifications and then added as a monitored activity (Notifications -> Monitored activites -> Gmail).

* It's recommended to open the app once after update to initialize new features and updates.

* If the latest version doesn't work then previous versions can be downloaded here: http://martinborjesson.com/android/

A note about Accessibility:
The app uses Accessibility to listen to notifications from other apps. When activating this feature a warning will be displayed, this warning is part of the Android-system and is displayed for every app that uses Accessibility. The warning can safely be ignored as the app only uses the notification-part and since the app does not require an Internet-connection no data can be sent away somewhere.

Some tips on how to increase the battery life when using the app:
Every time the LEDs has to change or when the vibrator or sound is started the device has to wake up for a short moment. More wake-ups results in decreased battery life. So to improve this set the Touch LED mode to Constant and optionally use a lower Touch LED brightness, for example 15-25%, and do not use vibration or sounds. Devices that can handle one LED at a time will only use one to increase battery life.

Thanks to

Everyone who helped me out with the app during its development !

Disclaimer: It is not known if using this app have any negative effect on the touch LEDs in the long term, so use at your own risk. By installing this you agree that I take no responsibility if anything happens to your device while using this app.
