support for led notifications



  • @wdehoog updated the previous post with the full report. I also saw that 0% charging level....weird indeed. Thank you for your help.



  • I was a bit suprised about shining led couple days ago, when I charged my Nexus 5. And even more when it turned different color after charged full. Good job, whoever made it work! ☺👍



  • Willem, here below the full unity8 report:

    Let me know if you need additional check.

    Regards.

  • @matteo to test your leds. It is also interesting to see the permissions. For example on opo:

    phablet@ubuntu-phablet:~$ find /sys -name brightness -ls

    If 'phablet' is allowed you can try:

    echo 1 > /sys/...../brightness
    

    if not you must do it as root:

    sudo bash -c "echo 1 > /sys/...../brightness"
    

    (replace the dots with the full path) and try to echo different values (0,1,64,255)

    Then it would also be interesting to show what other files reside in the same directories as the 'brightness' file. For example on opo:

    phablet@ubuntu-phablet:~$ ls -l  /sys/devices/leds-qpnp-f6287e00/leds/led:flash_torch/
    total 0
    -rwxrwxrwx 1 system android_media 4096 Mar  3  1970 brightness

    -rw-r--r-- 1 root   root          4096 Mar  3  1970 uevent
    

    And please post a dmesg log somewhere. Maybe this is related: https://e2e.ti.com/support/power-management/f/196/t/421131



  • @wdehoog hi Willem, thank you for the suggestions. I searched on the internet and what @UniSuperBox said before about only the white color to be natively available on the Meizu phones seems correct: at least one app does exist on Flyme/Android side able to unleash all the other colors for the Pro5 as well, so maybe also for UT a work-around could be eventually feasible somehow ---------> RGB led notification Flyme

    Now, here below the check I made.

    phablet@ubuntu-phablet:~$ sudo find /sys -name brightness -ls
         8459      0 -rw-rw----   1 system   system       4096 gen  9 09:06 /sys/devices/virtual/backlight/pwm-backlight.0/brightness

    I typed sudo bash -c "echo 1 > /sys/...../brightness" for all of the items listed above but apparently it didn't work; actually, the only consequence I've seen is when I got the usb cable connected powering up the phone with the notification light blinking, just after sending one of those commands the light suddenly disappeared.
    The following is what I have got in each of the folders above listed:

  • In regard to the dmesg log, may I ask you what's that for? Only to understand the purpose, generally speaking. I looked for /var/log directory and I found several archived dmesg files but a bit outdated I'd say. However, I'd copied the most up to date dmesg file and in the following link you can find the details: dmesg.log

    Please, tell me if you need something else from me. Needless to say, I really appreciate what you are doing 👍



  • @matteo in this link they mention a problem with the led driver your phone has (I don't have one so I could be totally wrong). And this link mentions how you could get it to show something (if it works).

    So do you get any results with find /sys/bus/i2c -name select_engine or with find /sys/bus/i2c -name lp5562



  • @matteo If the led went off with sudo bash -c "echo 1 > /sys/...../brightness" then you are on to something. Try other values (64, 255).
    Also check what cat /sys/.../onoff says or cat /sys/.../enable.



  • @wdehoog Willem, I started looking around at the references you gave to me. According to an other post in this Forum, it seems the RGB leds are disabled on purpose; see here below the section of the kernel file leds-lp5562.c commented out for this reason:

    static struct lp55xx_led_config lp5562_led_config[] = {
    	/*{
    		.name 		= "R",
    		.chan_nr	= 0,
    		.led_current	= 20,
    		.max_current	= 40,
    	},
    	{
    		.name 		= "G",
    		.chan_nr	= 1,
    		.led_current	= 20,
    		.max_current	= 40,
    	},
    	{
    		.name 		= "B",
    		.chan_nr	= 2,
    		.led_current	= 20,
    		.max_current	= 40,
    	},*/
    	{
    		.name 		= "m86_led",
    		.chan_nr	= 0,
    		.led_current	= 80,
    		.max_current	= 80,
    	},
    };
    

    I think this is the major culprit for not having any other colors but the white for the RGB led installed on the Meizu Pro5. My question is: how can I flash only this part of the kernel, prior modifying that code to see if it helps to solving that issue?



  • @matteo I dind’t find Time to do it but I think the best way would be to download the kernel turbo from github, modify the driver, compil the kernel and simply copy paste the module on the device with a write fs activated. My plan was to do that like this.



  • @matteo if the led support is build as a module then this module can be copied to the rootfs. If not I guess you can test a new kernel with fastboot boot which boots the kernel without installing it first.



  • You do miss a point here: Channel 0 in this definition would then be used by red and white. So to me that sounds as if there is no RGB led installed, but just a white one. You will probably gain nothing from this experiment, maybe even damage your hardware. I would be very careful, this code was commented for a reason (and reminds me of deleting unused code, never leave commented code like this in a production driver.)



  • @Flohack they are in fact 4 leds on the meizu pro 5 hardware, RGB and White. We can see the colors when the phone is running Flyme. I dont know the reason Why they only activate the white one but in hardware point of view, from the lp5562 datasheet we can see that it is able to drive 4 Leds, so I'm not sure that we can damage anythings on the phone by trying to activate other channels registers.

    If you don't feel it, I can try it as I have 5 Pro5 and one of the isn't usable as phone because the IMEI are missing.

    but you will have to wait as I don't have so many time to do that for now.



  • Ok in this case I still dont get the same channel number 0 for red and white?



  • @Flohack in my opionion, normally not, it must be a channel per color. a Year ago I modifyed the file already in order to use the 3 other channels but I don't remember where I put this file ...



  • @Flohack @matteo Ok I have to correct what I say, you can forget the RGB on Meizu Pro 5, I unmounted one, and there is only a single white LED, no RGB LED on the PCB. I then powered up my Pro5 running Flyme and try to send it different notification (low batt, charging, sms messaging, missed call), all the time the notification was white, the only difference between sms and call is the led pattern. When a sms arrive, the LED is breathing like actually on ubport, when a call is missed, the led blink once quickly, then once quickly with a breath effect.
    They are no LED indications on low battery or charging on Flyme.

    There is no way of getting RGB colors on Meizu Pro 5.

    We can only play with pattern.
    That's why the driver was commented and the white LED was connected on the Red channel from the LD5562 chip.

    ☹



  • @AlainW94 I assumed this sorry to say 😉



  • @Flohack Yes no problem... I'm too much utopian...
    BUT I noticed a hudge difference between Pro 5 on flyme and Pro5 on Ubports regarding the flash LED back to the phone for the camera, on the Ubport, when you would like to use it as a torch, both LED are on (the white and amber) which give a kind of warm white not really nice for pictures at low light. On Flyme, only the white LED of the flash is on, which give a nice cold white.

    How can we handle this on ubports ?



  • @AlainW94 thank you Alain for your attempt anyways...now at least we know it isn't worth to bother anymore with such an issue.



  • @matteo Yes true, even if I was hoping that it was an issue ! 😉
