    I have suddenly developed a problem with light flow
    When I get a text if flashes blue as it should but after I have read the text it is still flashing blue

    When I pull the notification bar down my text is showing in the light flow running app and if I click it to go to light flow it stops the flashing light.

    Hope that makes sense

    Anyone know how to stop it
    I've tried clearing data but it still does it


    Thanks

    Have you tried the light flow widget? If that doesn't work change options to shut off led when screen is turned on.

    I've got the same myself. Sometime the light stops when you hit clear all, sometimes it doesn't.

    I'm just waiting for the AOKP team to implement their solution as it was the only way that things ever worked properly on my GNex. Lightflow has never been perfect for me on any phone and the N5 is no difference.

    Have you reported this issue to the developer (from the play store link to contact the app's developer)? He is very responsive

    i tried lightflow myself but the SMS notification didnt work, and the light to indicate charging didnt work either. uninstalled the app and now SMS LED works normally. its just a buggy app (at least for our phone) at the moment

    It's been reported by a number of people over a few weeks on the developers XDA thread. He is on the case.

    Does it to me but not very often. I usually just reset my Nexus and it'll be good with that.
