    I can confirm the LED is a tri color (RGB) that works. Unfortunately the system doesn't utilize this. Hopefuly tomorrow we will get an update that will at least give us the battery charging LED (presumable Red).

    I seen red for battery low, blue for missed call or something, green for charging.

    The green, I only saw it when the phone was off and charging from the USB port.

    I just tested. So far Blue is incoming call.

    Green is missed something notification too. (its flashing green for the missed call I have)

    Red is battery low.

    Touchdown allows led changing for notifications. The Gmail Notifier app does as well. Both of those work on the droid x.

    Interesting, for some reason the LED is not working for me in Touchdown. I checked the settings and everything seems ok. Maybe it's the color I have chosen: Yellow. I thought it was a Droid X specific issue but I'll have to play with this some more.

    I tried Missed call but couldn't get it to work at all. It worked fine on my Droid though. Can anyone verify it works on the X?

    Remember that the screen must be off for the LED to work.

    Ok, its green when connecting it to the PC and off. But it starts up and goes away. Connect it to the PC, turn it off and it stays green and wont reboot.

    So far we got:

    Blue or Green for incoming call and texts.
    Red for needing charging.
    Green for turning phone off connected to PC? I assume its charging. Green has to be for some for some kind of charging.
    Green for missed something notification.

    Well it depends. If people are using third party programs for IM then the led may use whatever color the program has programmed. For me it's green as well.

    I finally got Touchdown to use the LED but I had to change the color to blue. I had a similar issue with my Droid when it accepted yellow instead. Looks like only certain colors work so I need to experiment some more.

    You said that Missed Call works. Can you describe your setup, what you have turned off or on, and how it currently notifies you? Thanks.
