  1. I’m facing a little difficulty. But, first of all, thanks for this wonderful tutorial. Most tutorial out there on the web are available only for iPhone or iOS and there were very few articles available for Android.
    Now come to the topic, I enabled LED flash call and text alert successfully on my Xiaomi Android device “Redmi K20”, however, when I’m getting email or calendar event notification, there’s no LED flash alert for those events. I tried everything guided in your article. Please help me. Sometimes, I missed important email and whatsapp updates because of this.

    1. The same things happening in Vivo phones. I’ve Vivo v15 Pro and I can’t use flash light alert mostly because it consumes a lot of battery. Plus, it’s not like indicator LED, but its a large LED flash that’s why it eats battery a lot.
