    Arrow ++take control of auto-dim feature

    Advertisement



    so this is for all the stackers that wish they had
    control over the auto-dim backlight feature on their pearl

    I never updated OS since i got the pearl in
    sept when it was released.

    some ppl who have newer pearls automatically
    have updated operating systems.
    and can not adjust the backlighting manually

    i'm here to change that.

    so i am including link to a website that hosts
    large files. (sorry if there are pop-ups) (firefox helps)
    anyways find the link for the old shool OS
    and d/l the RAR file.
    its a RIP of my CD that came w/ the phone
    (note: you need winRAR to open the file)
    (like winZIP but better, google it, its free)

    anyhow i hope this works for folks that want it
    downsides: CAN NOT use a 2gig mem card
    other than that i have no idea, i never upgraded

    click the .exe file once downloaded and it should
    open and let you install the older software

    other notes: not sure if you should uninstall newer
    updated software 1st. i would imagine so
    Just keep YOUR physical CD handy if anything
    goes awry.

    well good luck and may the force be with you

    heres the link
    http://www.filefactory.com/file/f9d5ac/

    ps...i take no responsibility if this doesn't work
    pss...click the link that say "download for free with filefactory basic"
    then enter verification code on next screen

    Re: ++take control of auto-dim feature

    The newer os fixed a few bugs. Like that darn hour glass and lag issue. I think another issue it resolved was a few minor issues with the track ball, as well as eliminating the option to control the auto dim. Me personally I never updated my os either, seeing I never had access to a cpu to do so. But I like the old os. But more than likely I will upgrade sooner or later

    Re: ++take control of auto-dim feature

    Its not really take control of auto dim feature but rather, downgrade your phone's OS, disable your mute btn, unable the move-trackball to turn off the calls when receiving a call, disable the 2GB Card and a few more... lol

    Id rather stay with .64

    Re: ++take control of auto-dim feature

    Well for me the auto-dim feature doesn't really bother me at all. For some people though it does and I just can't see why. But anyway if I didn't like the auto-dim feature then I still wouldn't do this because 1) I have a 2GB MicroSD card and this wouldn't work with this and 2) I like to have the newest OS out because it some things don't work with older OS's and that is kind of a hold back of the full potential of the device.

    Thanks for the post though because I'm sure some people on here have been looking for this since they realized that they couldn't manually turn this off or anything like that. Keep the good finds coming and thanks again,

    Re: ++take control of auto-dim feature

    The most annoying thing for me was the whole trackball move ringer turn off thing. I'd have the phone in my pocket and pull it out and have like 10 missed calls. Yeah that was it for me.
