I created this application for Samsung Galaxy SIII and I guess it might be useful to be used in Samsung Galaxy Note II. Some Samsung Galaxy Note II users reported that this application works properly in their device. So I guess there should be not much differences between Samsung Galaxy SIII and Note II in term of the core software. Anyway, you may report if there is any bugs. Your suggestions and comments are welcomed as well.

On Android 4.1 and 4.2, ROOT is required for those mark with asterisk *.
After grant the ROOT permission, you need to restart Light Manager for changes to take effect.
However ROOT is not required anymore from Android 4.3 onwards. You need to enable the Notification Access for Light Manager.

There are two operating modes:
1) Normal Mode - Only LED color for the first notification will be flashing
2) Alternating Mode - A few LED colors will be flashing alternately when multiple notifications are received

Yes, it is constantly running in background and cause wakelock only when you switch to "Alternating Mode".

Battery consumption is depending on your settings.
Minimum consumption would be running in "Normal Mode" without any 3rd party app notification LED enabled.
I got about 0.1% tested with Gsam Battery Monitor in SGSIII.

One thing I've noticed is that if I get a notification, the LED will blink as it should.
But if I then swipe away the notification instead of opening it, the LED keeps blinking once you lock the screen.
I have to go into the app that the notification was for in order to stop the LED blinking.

Is there any way to stop the LED if you swipe away the notification?

[edit] This only seems to be a problem when set to "Alternating Mode". When set to "Normal" swiping away a notification stops the LED flashing. I'll leave it set to normal and forego the multicolours ;) [/edit]

The app is working well!

But is there any possibility to also show the led notifications when the screen is on? So when i play a game or something and my device vibrates i can see what notification i received by looking at the led light.

The add app doesn't seem to work. Otherwise, works well! LED app with none of the talking folders, just what I'm looking for! :good:

EDIT: Stupid me. Just read that you need "alternating mode" to add apps. What's alternating mode and how is it different from normal?

What settings are you guys using for this to work? When I try to do the test nothing happens for me.

I tried light Flow and could only get a single color working (cyan).

Great app, I use it since Light Flow has some bugs in our devices.
Looks interesting. What is the main difference between this and Light Flow?

Well main difference is that it works flawlessly, when Light Flow once enabled it also enables Talkbalk (I think there's a solution for that posted somewhere) BUT most importantly (for me) it disables the swype-like features on Samsung Keyboard.
+1 to Light Manager :)

I use no special settings and it just works. Try normal mode though.

No special setting just normal mode. I have tested the colors and it all work. Maybe you got an app that is conflicting with it.

Yeah, swipe away the notification will not cancel the notification LED. I guess this is a bug which cannot be fixed. For Normal Mode, it can work because the firmware will cancel all notification LED once you have pulled down the notification bar.

I guess this function is limited by the manufacturer. Notification LED can only appear when the screen is off.
