    Question Question about backlight Dimming

    Advertisement



    Lets see how I can explain this.
    I just put OS 4.5 on my Verizon 8330, so I dont know if this is why.
    When the backlight on my phone goes dim (goes off completely) and I press the trackball, it would select whatever icon is highlighted. So if my SMS/MMS icon is highlighted when my phone goes dim (goes off completely) and I press the trackball, it would go into it.

    Before the 4.5 OS install, if the phones backlight was dim (goes off completely) and I would press the trackball, the phone would just light up and not select the highlighted icon.

    Is there an option to turn this off, or u think its from the 4.5 OS?

    Thanks in advance.

    When you say that it goes dim do you mean when the backlight goes off completely?

    There used to be a program form Palm os called always on that I loved. I really like my screen and keyboard always on, and always and full brightness. I have the extended battery so its not a big issue for me. Anyone want to write a new program??

    There was the old BBLight program what would keep your lights on, but it wasn't full brightness all the time, and it was made for much older BB's. I don't know, but I doubt it would work on newer devices.

    It seems like the screen will brighten in sunlight in the car but in normal car light it dims. Same thing on the plane. I need light for these old eyes!!
    My 7130 did go into screen saver if not used for 90 seconds, but while in use it was always the same brightness no matter what.

    That was a bug in the beta OS of 4.5.0.33

    If you upgrade for 4.5.0.45 for 8330 then that will solve the problem. (that OS is easily found, just search for it)

    I have 4.5.0.45 and it works awesomely and that problem has been fixed!
