    I'm on the Verizon GS3, and I wanted to see if this was a problem across all GS3s. In the Facebook app when you enable LED notifications, the LED on the phone just stays at constant red when you get an incoming notification. This is obviously not how it should be, just wanted to see if others were seeing the same problem.

    Yeah, software issue. Whatever the app is trying to tell the phone to do with the LED isn't getting translated correctly

    This is a Samsung issue. If you download any of the LED color changers and try to change the color per the standard RGB values, it does something totally different. I've been unable to find any kind of pattern for it either. So far, I've only been able to (I think) figure out that the last two digits (normally the Blue value) are ignored.

    Blink settings do not work either, which is why it just stays on.

    It kinda sucks. I hate it, and hope Samsung fixes it. I've pinged them on their web site, but I'm sure it will get nowhere.

    Personally, I disable all in-App-specific LED settings and let LightFlow control them all.

    LightFlow is having the same issue w/ the LED on the S III.

    They are working on a workaround at the moment, but it requires root. Samsung just needs to fix it (bring it in line with standards).

    I want more blue flashing, not red or funky purple constant on!!!!

    Lightflow does not work correctly on North American S3's.
