    In the meantime, if I could just figure out when its gonna choose to go dim vs when it will brighten maybe I can have peace of mind, but I haven't figured that out yet... is there a sensor somewhere I can cover up?

    stormyone, Don't forget to do a backup before the installation. That way you can restore most of the things that don't get included in the OS install.

    The sensor is around or behind the LED, I believe. The screen will dim whenever it detects a lower level of light, as when you hand causes a shadow on the sensor, but not the screen.

    Re: 8100 backlight problems after upgrade

    the other day i took the battery out of my blackberry pearl. when i put the battery back in and started it up, the back light would not come on. as it was dark in my car, i pushed the dome light on with the pearl in the same hand. i noticed the back light turned on. after about a thousand tests, it turns out i need a bright light to get the back light to work. i can not find anyone who knows what is going on.

    Re: 8100 backlight problems after upgrade

    are you guys talking about the keys and trackball dimming or the screen?

    on my pearl, i like it when the keys and trackball are lighted up. so when they turn off i just place my hand over the screen and vuola! they light up.

    my friend told me that theres a light sensor embeded in the screen. look at the screen at an angle from the bottom up. u will see two little holes on the top right side of the screen. i think those are them.
    i hope this helped.
