    Automatic Backlight

    Advertisement



    I know, I know! I've read every forum and they all say that if you want to turn off the autodim function of the backlight, go to Options>>Screen/Keyboard>>Automatic Backlight.

    But it's not there! I can't find Automatic Backlight or anything anywhere in my device. Nowhere. And I think the autodim thing is so so annoying. I even took it back to the store and the guy told me it was a misprint in the Help section on the phone.


    Someone, please help! Should I download a new OS or something?

    Re: Automatic Backlight

    Yes, Automatic Backlight is a OS improvement. Install a new OS, mine is v. 4.2.1.66.
    Best regards, Claudio

    I had same issue.

    move to 4.2.1.94 and the option to Enable/disable auto-back light will be there.

    Re: Automatic Backlight

    Obviously now I must ask: What are the pros and cons of changing my OS? Personally, I think it's nonsense that I have to do this in order to turn off this annoying autodim function, but will I lose any functionality and will I seriously botch it up if I switch to this new OS?

    Re: Automatic Backlight

    You can find a link in my sig that will help you out as far as instructions go. Pros and cons? Well the pros are the new features and bug fixes in the new version. The cons are potential new bugs and potential new conflicts with your 3rd party apps.

    Welcome to the Stacks BTW!

    Re: Automatic Backlight

    No definitely not, there is too much room for error. I wouldn't expect to see something like that for a number of years, right around the time we all have at least a global 2Mbit wireless connection, no matter where you go.
