    The title says it all. Is it possible? It would be nice to have homebrew with LED controlling capatibilities or maybe even one dedicated to it.

    The vine Smea released teasing r5/ninjhax 2.5 shows him using the ptm:sysm service which controls the notify LED so I think with the coming update it could be possible.

    in the illuminati headquar—I have said too much!
    What if there was a "flashlight" CIA where you could control the LED colors(Orange, Blue, and Blinking Red?). That'd be sweet.

    I think that's controlled by hardware, since it's only used for battery status. Unless you were talking about the notification LED, which can display green as well. It could probably be controlled to display any color.

    Yeah, that.
    If we could get it to display any color, that'd be so cliche. :P

    I doubt it. Since Ninjhax 2.5 can control it.

    Those are the hardware LEDs and pretty different than the Notification LED, which is controlled by the home menu.

    We don't actually know that it can... It is simply is logging the service that does control it. Whether or not we can use it to do anything like that is unknown.

    I changed the LED's to different colors and put a US mobo in a SSBB N3DS XL, but you want to control the LED's and the color of the notification LED.

    Well I just meant they were controlled by hardware triggers. Battery/Charging/Wireless

    If anyone is interested in what ptm:sysm can do you can see here.

    I was replying more to Jwiz; I probably should have quoted him, but yes, you're right.

    On a slightly off-topic note, ConfigureNew3DSCPU looks pretty interesting. Could probably use that to clock up or down dynamically in homebrew applications on 9.2 and below (clock it down in menus, and during heavy 3D or something, crank it up for more performance).

    Userland bricking? Not likely.

    Yellows8 would have been using kernel access. I don't think we could brick with userland access.

    But, prove me wrong if you like! ;)
