    Default CM11 (kitkat 4.4) button LED lights flickering?

    I have a Samsung Galaxy Express i437, I used Odin v3.7 to root and flashed the CM11 ROM with ClockWorkMod recovery. Everything works fantastic, its so much faster than OEM 4.1 Jellybean! I bought it just to practice root & ROM for my first try (dont wanna brick my S4)....not bad for a cheap 4G Wal-Mart go-phone i'd say.

    The only issue I found so far is that the external LED lights (menu and back) flicker non-stop, wasting a little bit of battery. It always stops the flickering by locking the device one more time, but sometimes I dont notice it when its laying around and it takes a toll on the power. Is there a way to fix it, and how would I fix it? I am just now learning about Terminal Emulator commands, and sideloading and whatnot. I think I can fix it if I get some advice from veteran android modders. but I do have the LED Light Flow APK controlling the lights on my S4, maybe it is obsolete for the i437 since I didnt notice LED notifications.

    Also If anyone needs help rooting and flashing with this same exact device, let me know, it was so easy to use ClockWorkMod recovery instead of TWPR because of my 64GB SD card format (EXT-4)? iirc

    Thanks

    I don't recall, but does CM have options to change the behavior of those keys? Probably would be in Settings>and Interface I think...

    If you (or anyone else) is still tuned in to this thread, would you care to share with the community where exactly you found it? Supernoob here and I just flashed my first device (Galaxy Player 5.0) two days ago with CM11 (4.4). I downloaded build.prop editor and didn't find anything that seemed like it would stop the capacitive buttons (menu/home/back) from flashing when there are new notifications in the notification bar.
