    I have a Verizon HTC One M8. I tried so many things without luck for a few days till I found this page.

    The Power Toggle app worked. It took me a few minutes to find the enable ‘pulse notification light’ toggle. Then I had to turn the green light on via the toggle. Once it was turned on I was actually able to uninstall the widget and app but my green notification light stayed working anyway. Thanks so much for your help.
