    Today's update (version 3.4) has a big bug on the Nexus 4. It causes a lot of problems when trying to turn the screen on. It takes several attempts to turn it on and when it does come on there is a very noticeable lag.

    I was able to restore to the previous version using TB, and have confirmed that it is indeed LightFlow that is causing the problem. I have already reported the issue to LightFlow.

    I've updated to the latest version today, LightFlow Lite and haven't experienced any problems.

    I've rooted and installed the AOSP browser (on N4 and N10) and activating Light Flow in Accessibility settings causes a conflict with the thumb control labs setting - the top bar doesn't hide properly and keeps reappearing in an odd way.

    Anyone else had this problem? I was hoping the new update might fix this, but haven't had opportunity to try it yet...

    Running the newest version of Lightflow and no problems here.

    Apparently i'm in the minority.

    They emailed me back and said there may be a problem if the backlight LCD control is checked. Mine has always been checked and never caused an issue before. I'm just going to wait until the next update to try and update mine again.

    I uninstalled Light Flow on a Nexus 4, as it was causing display problems such as unable to wake during a phone call and several other issues that caused major problems.

    I've updated with no issues. However I am running a custom rom and kernel. Maybe that is why? :thinking:

    Lightflow was just updated again. I can't say for sure that it fixed the issue as I never had it to begin with, but for some of you it's worth a shot.

    I updated this morning to the newest version (3.4.1) and yesterday's fix seems to have resolved the issue. Everything is running normally with the newest version now. :thumb:

    Any suggestions getting this set up? I can't seem to get mine to work. :(

    Disregard. Found developers thread on XDA and tried some of the suggestions and got it working.
