Motorola RAZR - Funlights Setup and Tutuorial Guide

What are Funlights? They are a cool Motorola feature on many of their phones that show a flashing keypad, LCD screen, and Bluetooth indcator light when you receive an inbound phone call on your Motorola RAZR V3 or similar phone. Usually, they do not come enabled out of the box and there are two main methods for enabling the funlight feature.

1. Use SEEM editing, or a method edit the SEEM or storage container on your mobile Motorola phone.

2. Use an editor like P2KTools in order use a graphical interface in order to edit the various settings.

For the purposes of this tutorial I will be providing both methods, and the graphical interface will be provided by P2KTools 0.8.6 Build 406 (Installation Guide here) although P2KTools3 also know as PKTools VS is also compatible.

Here is the how to guide:

1. You need to obtain the funlights pattern file (funlight.pat) included in the file. That can be obtained here. (May need to be logged in to download)

2. You need to transfer the file to the /a/mobile/audio folder on your Motorola phone using P2KCommander, P2KTools, or similar P2K program.

3. You need to either edit Seem 0032_0001 offset 63 by making sure that bit 2 is checked or using P2KTools (pictured below) you can choose the --> Switch to P2K Mode --> Other Features --> Multimedia --> Click 'Get' near the bottom --> then select 'CLUB_LIGHTS_AVAILABLE', 'CLUB_LIGHT_AVAIALBLE' and 'ALERT_LIGHTS_AVAILABLE' on the phone --> Click Set below.

How to enable funlights on your Motorola RAZR phone guide and tutorial

4. An important step (missed originally) is that now you need to use the green 'Restart' button at the top of the screen for the P2KTools software to restart your phone. Once the phone is restarted, go to step 5.

5. Now go to your RAZR phone and click Menu --> Settings --> Audio and the 'Ring Lights' menu item should be enabled. Choose from your choice of various Ring Lights which include (None), Starburst, Wild, Lava, Funk, Pulse, Wave, Techno, and Forest. Once you select your Ring Lights style, exit. Place a test call to your mobile phone and see the Funlights light up!

Congratulations, you have successfully enabled the Moto modification for funlights on your Motorola phone! Did this work for you? Please let me know with a comment!

At first I couldn't find the ringlights either, after following the instructions given here, the only thing I did differently after about 4 different tries was to restart the phone from P2KTools, and that made the difference. It showed the ringlights after restarting the phone. Maybe that is a missed step in the tutorial? Thanks for the great guide!

I tried all the steps, everything worked out great, I enabled the ring lights, BUT!!! when I place a call to my phone nothing happens it rings just the same. Any Ideas?

I did this and the feature worked out okay, but editing the SEEM 0032_0001 definitely caused some shiet:
1. my Message button doesn't function,
2. my Message icon isn't present in my menu - in fact, I can't access me Inbox or Outbox and all, and
3. my menu's just plain messed up.

Yeah, I am NOT happy. I've searched other sites and what seems to be the problem was that you're not supposed to press 'Set' in step 3 without pressing 'Get' first. So thanks for that...?

Help would be appreciated.
