SMS Notification LED for Streak
Something that has been requested quite frequently is LED notification on the Dell Streak. So far, there has not been a successful development – until now.
XDA forum member Meltus has been working on an SMS Notification LED application for the Streak and has now released an alpha. The dev has stated that the app still needs a lot of development but initial tests look promising.
Once installed, you just need to run the app and hit the home button. When you receive a text message and your Streak is locked, it will wake and dim the screen then flash the home, menu and back LEDs in a pattern. The screen will remain dimmed until you unlock the Android device manually.
Meltus is currently in the process of adding more LED patterns and has also added a pop up message upon receipt of an SMS.
Requires root access.
To try out the application and to provide feedback, head on over to the application thread.
