If you have a rooted Android device, you probably have experienced different roms that are actually ports from other devices. The biggest issue with these is usually the lack of support for many features that are present in the device. These are normally fixed by the devs as they normally strive for excellence in their ports. XDA member senab has been working on a LED notifications fix, as many ports actually lack this feature. However, his latest installment seems to have finally solved it… for everyone. It seems that he found a way for the app to look for the paths to the LED, regardless of their location.

This requires root and if your device has working LED notifications, don’t install it as it will mess up with your device.

One of the things stopping me from using the Eris port was not having LED notifications. Hunting around, the old threads about this problem with Cupcake Hero and the main fix for it was the HeroLED app from fictionless.

For the past couple of days I’ve painstakingly used a combination of smali and a decompiled versions of the APK to resurrect the code. This has resulted in a base for which I can start adding features. Therefore I introduce HeroLED.
