HD2 Keypad LED Notification
XDA member NetRipper has created a notification system for the HD2. After some requests for an application that uses the keypad LEDs as notification manager, NetRipper managed to develop it for his HD2. The LEDs will start blinking when you recieve a text message or a mail, or when you missed a call.

- checks unread sms and missed calls

Please test the attached executable that you like. Put it on your device and run it. You’ll get a notification when it is started. It remains active until started again (=exit) or reboot.

Let me know if it works for you.
You can download the application in the request thread.
