    May be a stupid question but is there a way to disable this feature? I'm trying to run my battery to zero to calibrate it. I'm well aware it's getting low, don't need the light reminding me, lol. Thanks in advance

    I have not read or seen anything to deactivate the warning light for low battery. Perhaps if the phone is rooted there may be a way. Or just put a band-aide over the LED light to hide it. LOL

    Haha, the band aid would be ugly as sin on such a sexy phone. I figured there probably wasn't a way but figured it couldn't hurt to ask

    I wish you could turn this off too, or that it would at least alternate green and red when you have notifications and battery at that level.

    Yeah, for a company that is so good at so many things, this was a boneheaded move. Your notification LED is essentially worthless once your phone is at 15% battery or less. It's highly irritating.

    Agreed it sucks you don't get notifications when you're under 15%. I also don't like the "Connect your charger" on the lockscreen. As if the red light CONSTANTLY blinking wasn't a good enough reminder you need to charge your phone.

    WidgetLocker solves that problem quite nicely. :)

    plugging it into the charger also works :). JK I agree this is dumbo move, I think the DesireZ ROM has an option for this but don't quote me on that, plus has no camera if that is a main concern of yours. cool ROM though with the new sense and sense.com working with it.

    I'm not rooted, that's why I posted this in the Incredible section and not the All Things Root ;) Thanks though

    I do understand the fear of change and not wanting to turn ur $400 phone into a brick, but that is very unlikely and only happens when doing before reading.

    There is no downside to rooting. Try before you bash it.

    I'd rather have a rooted Droid Eris, than a non-rooted Incredible, IMHO.

    Come on now. You lose credibility when you make such absurd statements.

    No, it can happen to ANYBODY. It's still unlikely, but it's possible. Not to mention the DEFINITE downside of losing your warranty (again, they probably won't notice, but if they do Your going to be out $500+).

    For me, the risk of bricking my phone (however small that risk is) would not be worth it to change the notification light.

    And unless you're willing to PERSONALLY fix anybody's phone that gets bricked, stop pushing it so hard. Rooting isn't that big of a deal, but don't ignore the downsides.

    I never bashed rooting or even said I was against it. I simply stated I wasn't rooted. I'm perfectly happy with my Inc being stock. I had a rooted Eris & your statement & persistent to persuade me to root is foolish. I'm glad you're happy with your rooted Inc but at this time there's no reason for me to root my perfectly fine working Inc.

    I'm not trying to pursuade anything I was just telling my two cents. I see now I should have kept them to myself. Didn't mean to offend any one here.

    and just for the record I wasn't trying to tell someone to root for a blinking light, I always tell people to do at least a couple weeks of research before rooting. I dind't realize it was gunna get turned the wrong way. I liked my rooted Droid Eris. Everyone is different and I wasn't saying any one is right or wrong.

    HTC should have made it so that when the phone gets down to 15% then it cries like a baby needing changing instead of a blinking LED. LOL

    Alternating between amber and green blinks means the battery is overheating.

    It's a shame there's not more control built into the stock build.

    I do not really mind it, I just wish it would consistanly blink when I have received text message (or is this just my phone???)

    Also WormDoes, pretty cool avatar :p
