I have a custom ROM on my S3, but that shouldn't really be the issue here. I am on JB 4.2.2.

With my custom ROM I am able to set up different colors of the LED notification for each app that I want. However, this works for every single app I get notifications for except for Instagram. I still get the notifications for Instagram, the LED just doesn't light up when I receive them or they are still sitting in my tray. For Twitter I had to change the settings in the app itself to allow the LED to work, but for every other app, it has been default once I added the settings in my custom ROM. Instagram seems to be handling notifications a little bit differently from the other applications, because it doesn't wake up my phone when I get a notification either. But, I have a desktop application that shows me a pop-up on my computer when I receive notifications on my phone, and it notifies me for every notification, even Instagram.

I want to know if there is anything that I can do within Instagram or maybe somewhere in the phones settings to enable the LED to light up when I receive a new notification from Instagram.


  • What rom are you using?

  • @Nick it's a custom AOKP by Task650. Doesn't really have a name but all the settings are the same as plain AOKP. Jun 24, 2013 at 21:28

Have you tried using Light Flow? It does the what the same thing as the custom rom does and Instagram is on their list of support apps for their Pro version.

  • I really don't want to have to pay just to receive notification from Instagram, but if I don't figure anything else out, thanks for the option. Jun 24, 2013 at 21:53
