T-Mobile's 4.5 BACKLIGHT BUG...
Just upgraded to Tmobile's 4.5... I'm a little nervous about non-stock upgrades, so I was excited to see an option from my carrier...
Everything went smoothly, but I've noticed that even with "Automatically Dim Backlight" set to "OFF", the screen will still dim and light up depending on lighting conditions.
Obviously, this is an endemic bug that was not in the previous T-Mobile offering...
Sounds like a software problem as it's not reading that setting from the database to turn off it's light sensor. I recommend reinstalling the OS. And you downloaded 4.5 from the t-mobile site? If it's 4.5 I have never really tried to turn that feature off as it is very useful, but that's just my opinion.
Give it a try and let me know what you find out.
Indeed, it is T-Mobile's version of 4.5... Installation went very smoothly with no issues... It's a strange little bug...
I upgraded to t-mobile's 188.8.131.52 yesterday and this setting works for me.
Very strange. Maybe theme related? I use the T-mobile one.
I did a total wipe of the device, back to the stock T-Mobile settings and before reinstalling my backed up information, I noticed it was still funky...
I guess I'll JL Commander wipe the sucker and try T-Mob's OS fresh...
the funny part is, i have had this happen on my Sprint 8130... Ever since i migrated to it. It did it in 4.3, and does it in 4.5... its sort of wierd
From what I understand, it's a common problem for a lot of folks (mostly those on CDMA devices, actually)...
I never experienced it on my 4.2 T-Mob stock 8320 until I upgraded yesterday...
If I wipe it clean via JL Commander and reinstall the new 4.5, I won't have a clue as to what to do next or what could possibly be causing it!
I have wiped clean with JLC, reloaded the OS (4.3) and then tried reloading 4.5 in the same fassion... still have the same issues
That's not very inspiring...
I already did a wipe of the handheld, so wiping via JLC and reinstalling the OS is simply time-consuming... I guess I'll still try it, but I won't be terribly optimistic!
also when doing these upgrades make sure you remove your memory card as they have been known to cause random glitches in every install...hope this helps
That's a great suggestion. Of course, I left my memory card (and SIM) in when I did the first upgrade.

Thanks for the tip, maybe it'll make a difference...
