Enable Led Notification around the Camera cutout in 5 Steps via OnePlus Nord

  1. Vishal Varghese , via OnePlus Nord , Oct 22, 2020 :
    While searching for Led notification on the OnePlus Forum, I came across many people written that they are in need of Led notifications on their OnePlus Devices.

    Hole punch camera notification alert was the first Idea selected for IDEAS 2.0 Round 1. I hope OnePlus will add this feature to the next update.

    Here is an easy way to Enable Led Notification around the hole-punch of your OnePlus Nord, you can also do this method on other OnePlus devices.
    Step 1
    Download the application Always On Edge(AOE) from Google Play Store.
    Here is the link to download the application :

    Step 2
    Open the AOE application and go to “Main settings” and “Enable Independent Lighting Controller”, It will ask you for accessibility permission, allow the permission. Next, enable “Notification access” permission. Scroll down and save the settings.


    Step 3

    Go to “App setting” and in “When to turn on Edge Lighting? “, Enable “Notification Lighting”. Now allow permission for Display over apps. Scroll down and save.

    Step 4

    Open “Lighting Settings”. In the “Lighting Placement” option Select “Around Notch Only”.

    Select the “Adjust Manually” option, and make the adjustments as given below

    These adjustments are for OnePlus Nord

    Notch Type: Other

    Notch Width: 197

    Notch Height: 70

    Notch Radius: 19

    Notch Top Size: 36

    Notch Left Size: 64

    Edge Thickness: 6 or 7

    You can choose the Edge style and Edge color to your liking.
    Save the settings.


    Step 5

    The final step is to Enable apps for which you need the notification from the “Enable Apps” Section.

    I hope this will be helpful to all those who are looking for amazing LED notification around the Camera cutout.

    This is awesome. It's quite complicated to set up,but i got it to work eventually.
    Thank you so much.
    All I wanted was to see if someone sent me a WhatsApp message as it did on my old phone. Then I realized the lack of the multicolor LED on my 1+ Nord
    Well invested money

    Bonjour de France,
    Je te remercie pour nous avoir fait découvrir cette application et pour ton travail. Je viens de l'installer et je suis très content. Par contre je n'ai pas choisi d'éclairer le contour de l'encoche mais plutôt le contour de l'écran. Et le résultat est magnifique, du moins pour moi 😂😂 !!
    Envie merci pour ton travail.
    Bonne journée à tous

    Hey thanks for this, very appreciated. Although, I'm a bit surprise at all the permissions it asks for?

    Not sure I understand well why so many permissions? Are you the one that made the app? Or if not, anyone able to explain it?

    I don't want to cause security issues in my phone just for a notification led. Thanks

    Thank you for the appreciation😊, I am not the creator of this application btw. I found the app on Playstore and had a 4.4 rating. It works well for me.

    About the permissions,science it is not part of the launcher and it is just another application so it requires access to the notifications for notifying it to the user, and for displaying the notification light it requires permission for "Display over other apps".
