Just did a test and found that if I receive a Google Voice text it will flash blue and flash intermittently until I acknowledge it. This was the same behaviour I experienced on the Truly Epic ROM but not on 2.1 stock. Maybe Froyo has that built in and anything that is not stock flashes blue and red for all else.

If you run the dialer code *#0*# and select the LED button, you will see that only the blue, red, and magenta colors work for the LED, with magenta just being the other two both on at the same time. I believe it's up to app developers to figure out how to correctly utilize a phone's built-in LED colors, and most just provide the option of "on" or "off" and use the phone's default color. I'm just guessing here, though, so don't take my word for it.
If you've never heard of the dialer codes, you can search online for more, but be careful because some of them will go as far as to factory reset the phone.

- EB13 with Genocide v.2a
Not trying to bash you or anything, but you should try looking through the forum just a little before you make a new thread. It's easier on the mods.
This thread was started less than an hour before you started yours: http://forum.androidcentral.com/spri...behaviour.html

Red, blue, green, yellow...
I'm color blind--I have no idea what color the LED meant before or after EB13.
I am, however, having trouble getting all of my email accounts to sync and pull mail; and, the battery life is about 20% less than it was before the update.
I'm not sure how to fix the email issue, but I thought Froyo was supposed to help with battery life?

I was pleasantly surprised to see the blue LED for SMS and red for e-mail. I tried setting it up that way on 2.1 with no success. I've also noticed there is a low battery alert (I believe at 15% remaining) that wasn't present in 2.1.
As my battery continues to dwindle, I've found that it beeps twice at 5% remaining. A great feature, in my opinion. I was using a third-party app to remind me of a low battery. I do think it would be nice to customize the alerts, expecially for those who wish to disable them. I've yet to find a way to do that.

Since DK28 I have had red for texts/vmails and blue for everything else... Which I actually like (how my bb was).. I have no clue what the color would change to on EB13 as it is currently in paper-weight mode.
