LED light and more
Will all of the brilliant minds in this group, has anyone figured out how to make the LED work? I would love to see a flashing light in my future. Also, any idea how to make the menu lights light up when it's dark? My Moto Droid lite up when I was done with a call but this phone, I'm in the dark.

Maybe we're talking about two different things.
There is no LED notification light. You don't have anything to blink for a notification. It's not physically there.
The LED flash on the camera can be controlled to be used for a flash light. You can press a button to turn it on and off. There are a number of "flashlight" apps for that purpose.

I don't think NoLed is fully compatible with the Fascinate. When it does work, it appears to be sporadic. Hopefully the developer will fix this. I love this phone overall, but I absolutely hate that it doesn't have a notification LED. The only other phone I know that doesn't have one is the iPhone.

Not to thread jack but what led flashlight apps work? I tried countless apps in the market and all my faithul HTC Incredible apps (Lampuu for one, its widget being my favorite) and none of them work. I am rooted...
No led notification really sucks but I did see that in the specs before I bought it. It would have cost all of $.10 tops to incorporate on a nearly perfect phone (TouchWhiz blows and Bing is fixed). This is 2010, a top of the line phone should have a notification led. And I thought the Incredibles microscopic green/orange bicolor led sucked at notifying me. Your best bet is downloading the missed call app. At least it'll buzz and/or make a sound at a pre-determined interval to let you know you got something.

On the Incredible there are 2 leds, on the fascinate there are 4 individual led AND they are driven individually. When you touch one of the buttons, the led flickers off and on. That said, it still wont be easy (more than likely not possible) to control these leds. Theres no API to control these (unless something has changed). You could do something simular to the noLed app and set the screen to stay on but display a black sceen and find a way to manipulate the light sensor and\or simulate a keypress. Of course that approach would not be great for battery life.

Speaking of Flashlight apps... I was using appbrain on my phone to look at the installed apps and came accross something called "Pineone Flashlite Plugin". I did a google search and didn't come up with anything. Anyone know what this is?
edit: It just occurred to me... this is probably a light version of Adobe Flash...huh?
