    Immediately after I booted my phone up after the update my trackball was glowing green telling me I had an email. I never set it to green. Id like to figure out how to change the trackball colors.

    I went through all the settings I could think of but apparently I missed it. Where is this located?

    Install Blink from the Market.

    Be aware though, that the screen needs to be off for the colour to change.

    I thought it was something built into froyo now. So I still have to DL a program, hmm. What do you mean the screen needs to be off? You mean it wont change if Im actually using the phone, it has to be in sleep mode?

    It is, however, it is activated by Applications... Right now, stock apps do not have this built in (except FaceBook (Blue)).

    I use GMail notifier to change my email color and HandCent for SMS color.

    I HOPE (I mean HOPE) that it will be more native in the FINAL Froyo... Who knows, but for now, works as I need. :)

    Froyo is final, this is how it works.

    Where do you get that the latest builds out that it is final? :D

    I know that the source has been published, but the builds Google has been putting out for the N1 are not final from what I have read and understood.

    Even though the BASE code may be FINAL, but N1 builds are not?
