disabling flashing LED?

dear all,

as part of my alternative setup i want to comment out nickel in rcS.
but seems to be responsible for disabling the flashing led after the start process.

currently nickel is started and then stopped with "killall" afterwards.

any idea how i can stop the flashing on my own?

This worked for me:
Code:
echo 0 > /sys/class/leds/pmic_ledsg/brightness

Yesterday I came across the attached script. Maybe this might help. I haven't tried the script myself, but uses the same procedure as I did up to now to control the LEDs manually.

Sven, you are running an alternative besides nickel. don´t the leds go on in your boot process?

My Touch shows a short blue blink after power on before starting boot animation. Therefore, I don't think nickel is involved at this point in time (at least in my FW version).
