    How to use WiMAX LED on HTC EVO for SMS/MMS notifications


    "Since the notification LED on the left side of the HTC EVO 4G's earpiece isn't customizable, you can't tell if a flashing green light means a missed call, SMS/MMS, email, alarm, reminder, or voicemail without turning on the phone and looking at the screen.
    Wouldn't visual notifications be more useful if the WiMAX LED on the right side of the earpiece displayed some of them too? Then you could get a better idea of what was going on more quickly and decide whether it was worth stopping whatever you were doing to deal with it. Text messages, for example, are almost always important, so why not assign SMS/MMS notifications to the WiMAX LED?

    Here's how you do it:
    1. 1. Download bludragon742's WiMAX Notifier. The latest version (10.09.06), released earlier this week, doesn't require root and can be used for SMS/MMS (stock messaging app, Handcent, and Chomp have been tested). Later versions will support missed calls, Gmail, and voicemail. Install it on your EVO and launch it to adjust the settings.
    2. 2. Choose your desired LED color and blinking rate from the list: green slow, green glow, green & red alternate, orange glow, red solid, green solid, orange solid. Press Home -> Menu -> Settings -> Display -> Notification flash.
    3. 3. Uncheck the SMS/MMS option so that the standard notification LED does not blink when a message is received.
    Now whenever you get a new SMS or MMS, the WiMAX LED will let you know about it. And when the notification LED goes off at other times, you'll know it's not because of a text message"

    It is a shame you have to register to get to it.... For whatever reason, it just won't let me register over there.

    Sweet, thanks. I tried to several times and it keeps failing the image verification. I have never had one fail me before, it is all quite odd. Thanks for the hookup.

    Even though this had been discussed before, I wasn't aware that it was made available for non-rooted phones! Thanks for posting!

    Already downloaded onto my phone and test worked fine. Just need a new text to come in to verify that it works like I want it to.

    I installed it a few hours ago. 50k program but now that its been running i checked System Pannel and its 10.7 Meg running in the backround..
    is that supposed to be that big?

    I uninstalled the program. Its a great idea and app but it slowed my phone down. It was very noticeable, when I uninstalled, my phone ran a lot quicker.

    I've been using it since the release. Works well but crashes occasionally.

    Mine crashes, but I think it's because of Juice Defender. Nontheless, it's a cool app, but I just uninstalled, since I don't really need it.

    Put the .apk on your sd card then install the .apk using a file explorer.

    How do I find it on my card? I can't find it. I am so sorry to sound lost but I am.

    If you downloaded the APK while browsing on your phone, it should be in the download folder on your SD card.
