I just tested and i can't get light flow to change the charging LED. It doesn't even turn off if you disable the notification light in Androids DIsplay settings.

To bad. It's keeping me awake at night and really holding me from buying a dock.

I've been able to sort of fix this using Light Manager. I select a really dark color (almost black) for both charging and fully charged set it to be always on (no blinking).

It's kinda finicky, though, and sometimes it takes a few moments until it LM takes over from the built in notification light. For me, Light Manager works better than Light Flow. YMMV, it's possible to do this with both of them.

Just wanted to say that I have done this with Light Flow and it works great. It still shows the default charging colours when the screen is on, but when it's off it uses the ones in light flow. The trick is to use anything but totally black. I set it with the HEX code to FF000001 and it works.

That is on a full-size Z3 but I can't imagine the hardware is different regarding LEDs.

I use light manager and it does work with a dark colour to set the charging/charged led colour. (dark blue)

BUT
When I use sleep mode (so I get to notification lights) the charging/charged trick doesn't work ....

So I have to dissable sleep mode

anyone has a solution for this?

Lightflow doesn't seem to work for me neither.
Is there any other option without rooting the device (no option, as it's for the device of my girlfriend)

Works perfectly for me. Keep trying. Make sure it's enabled in settings security notification access.

Hmmmm very good point. Thx for the advice. I think I activated this after the installation of Light Flow. I remember some red info message bugging me ;) But to be honest I can't find this setting anymore. Where can I reconfigure/ review this?

Settings -> Security -> Notification Access

    Works like a sharm! No root necessary. The new notification light is much better then the speaker built in thing from the z1c.

    If using the dock your "hack" is useless.


    Flip it over.
