 Hi there.

I was told that it is possible to use the Samsung Galaxy 7500 with
your own (custom build) Android OS system image. Is this true? Is the
bootloader free for custom system images or does it still need a
jailbreak to do so?

 This question probably belongs in android-discuss. Thanks. At the
moment the only minimally supported hardware target for the Android
Open-Source Project is ADP1.

1. Controlling LEDs on Notification

On my HTC EVO I see that my running apps have two forms of typical

1) Tweets, for example, vibrate and make a sound once upon arrival only.
2) SMS, for example, vibrate and make a sound once upon arrival, but
   flash the LED until the SMS is acknowledged.

In my app I create a new Notification and set the flags as follows:

theNotification.defaults |= Notification.DEFAULT_ALL;
theNotification.flags |= Notification.FLAG_AUTO_CANCEL;

This performs notification as per example #1.  How do I change this so
that I get notification as per example #2?  Ideally, I'd also like to
control whether the LED flashes red or green.
