Lightbulb
for user of the Nexus S either 9020 or 9023 that are having problems after the updates (i personally own 9020 but got friend with 9023)
i would suggest to try and get the 1.0.17 version (that was the 1st update since v0.9)
that's the only one that is working for mine and my friend's nexus s
either for calls and for sms/e-mails...

p.s.
is there any way i can "block"the bln pro app from updating...
it sucks when i just have to re-apply my nandroid backup every time...

Thanks for reporting which version did work for ns users, it is always a pleasure to read useful posts.
Btw, it is 0.10.17, there is not yet a major release of the pro version.

Hi Neldar.
I'm using the latest version of the BLN Pro App with Semaphore Kernel (in a SGS 9000 with Gingerbread 2.3.3.), but I have a strange issue: I don't get any BLN with SMS, and after I get an SMS the BLN stops working and I have to check again the enable BLN and Stock app mark again in the app. What is going wrong? Can you please help?
Thanks

Go and get BLN for Samsung i9000 Eclair, Froyo or Gingerbread or any other kernel/rom with BacklightNotification support.
Or visit this page to view a list with supported phones by BLN.


What is the BLN mod?
The BLN mod turns the touchkey backlights into a notification led.
It enables the notification led api for any android application that supports notifications by led.
If you dont have the BLN mod installed, the app provides you instructions how to install the BLN mod.

What does this app?
This application gives you control over the BacklightNotification (bln) mod settings on your phone.

What features does the Free version have?

  • enable/disable BacklightNotification function (without uninstalling bln)
  • test BacklightNotification
  • update function (notifies you about new BLN app, liblights or kernel releases)

Additional features in the Pro version:
  • scheduler (disable BLN at night, ...)
  • locale plug-in(s) for: bln status, blinking, scheduler, static led, notification led
  • blinking**:
    • select on/off led period
    • select overall blinking duration (5-60 minutes or unlimited)
    • select led status after blinking ends(on/off)
    • stop blinking if battery is below a selectable % level
  • adds led notifications for:
    • missed calls

** Please notice that blinking consumes more energy than static backlight!

Download the app from market:
Free | Pro

For PC: ( Free ) ( Pro )

The price for the Pro version is 1,50€ (~ 1,99 US$).
The Pro version is available at the android market (creditcard) and at androidpit (paypal, clickandbuy).

If you find an issue, please report it here in the thread.


Which features will be added to future Pro versions?
  • enable/disable BLN for stock apps (with detection for calendar events)
  • bln widget
  • install/repair BacklightNotification on your phone
  • uninstall bln
  • enable/disable BLN by proximity sensor (needs to be checked, could drain battery)
  • suggest me a feature

What permissions are used for which features?
  • RECEIVE_BOOT_COMPLETED: to activate BLN at boot and start the services
  • INTERNET: for update notification (new BLN app, liblights or kernel releases - you can disable the notification in the update settings) and for the compatibility check (the app receive instructions for you, if the app detects that something is wrong with the BLN setup)
  • READ_PHONE_STATE and READ_CONTACTS:
    to detect missed calls (i dont know why the READ_CONTACTS is also needed, the app does NOT read contacts - maybe google knows...)
  • WAKE_LOCK: scheduler (reactivating interrupted led notifications)

To kernel-devs / rom cookers: Please do only integrate the FREE version of this app into your releases.

Please - I want to install bln on my rooted SGS I9000, I have SGS kernelflasher, and I already have stock2e. I am trying to get the version 2.3.1, but there were more than one .zip files to download. Any help please . .

BLN Control for SGS II I9100
Hi neldar,

this was my favourite app that solved problems with message/call notifications when i was on my SGS I9000.

But i made upgrade to SGS II I9100 to get same problem with no notifications

Is there any posibility or chance to have working BLN control for SGS II I9100 in the future? It will be great!

Thank you for your work!

Hans

Sorry, no idea what is going on there. But that sounds like a bug of your rom, the sms notification is not handled by bln control. (Only call notifications are handled.)

Instead of reporting that a specific version does work fine, i would like to see a proper bugreport like this:
In version x of bln control free/pro is x feature/option broken(/insert bug description).
I am using x phone with x kernel and x rom.
(Last version x of free/pro was working fine.)

I am going to treat any further suggestion to obtain an old version of the pro version as a suggestion to use/obtain warez, if you are not referring to a self-made backup.

Currently not, there are some modifications of kernel components involved that can not be replaced/made by a module.

Please remove the quote of the first post and ask the question in the correct thread.

It is almost done, there only one piece of the puzzle missing.

Btw, yesterday evening i have released two updates:
BLN control - Free:
v1.1.4:
  • fixed: test notification did not work on gingerbread
  • fixed: bln could not be disables on kernel with bln enabled by default
  • removed: useless pro option views

BLN control - Pro:
v0.10.24:
  • fixed: bln could not be disables on kernel with bln enabled by default
  • fixed: npe in update check
  • fixed: some minor bugs

Do yourself and me a favor and post proper/useful bugreports (that refers to the above said).
Happy bug-search.
