Works great in Froyo on my EVO, but on Gingerbread it is a no go... I have tried CM7, OMFG, Mik, Miui, Stock Ginger ... none of them work with this progz ... I really love this app. Dont want to switch back to Froyo because it is so old school :( Help please ..

(Only tested it for incoming SMS)
Thanks a lot

    UPDATED VERSION NOW AVAILABLE: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=14961111

    Alright, here we go. This app will flash your LED when you receive a phone call or when you get a new text message. Unfortunately it can't do it when you get new emails since there is no standard system notification for email among the many email apps (Email, Gmail, K9, etc.).

    Here's a screenshot of the app, Flashlight Alerts:


    The APK is attached and it is also available in the Market for $2.99 if you'd like to donate:


    It was actually a real pain to put together since there is no standard flashlight API prior to Froyo, but I'm happy with the way it turned out. Let me know if you run into any issues!

    PS: I would appreciate it if somebody could check if this thing is actually in the Market on their EVO. It's showing up there on my Nexus One but not on my EVO. Hmm... Fixed this. Stupid bug in the Market makes it so that if you mark your app as requiring a camera with flash, it doesn't show up for EVO.

    Compatability Notes: This version will work with the EVO, Desire, and Droid. If you have a Froyo phone (Nexus One) you should be able to use the Froyo version (in the Market or later in this thread, post #65).
    I would think this would be a bad idea for the same reason all those *led* flash light apps warn you not to over use for fear of burning out...If you get a much of notifications that would mean constant use.

    typical life span of a led is 25,000 hours, and that just means it loses about 50% of its lumens output.

    i highly doubt they'll burn out.

    thats 2.85 years of being on.
    Are the led notifications on the front facing camera not bright enough for you or something?
    Just installed the froyo version in post 65 and it works perfectly on my evo with virus rom gingersense. Apristel thanks for requesting and rdude for developing!
