Well, for battery life freaks like myself, I'm sure I would notice a gain if there were no lights activated.

I hate these bright soft keys with a passion. If there was a way to completely disable them by tweaking the kernel I would be all for it.

It wouldn't be so bad if they didn't stay on so long or pop on with the slider. Please marcus....slay these annoying lights.

FYI, with CM9, the Screen Filter app disables the soft keys. They'll turn back on if you touch them, but you can start and use an e-reader indefinitely without doing that. The app also works as a widget, so if you touch the soft keys accidentally, a quick double tap of the widget will turn them back off.

You can also make tasker run the echo 0 part of the script I wrote every time you hold the search button or open the launcher/book app.

From a linux based standpoint there is only one legitimate option. That is to run your script and then wear gloves which hamper the output of static electricity from your fingertips, so that you can surgically apply DUCT(or your preferred brand/type) TAPE over said lights without them turning on, in which case your script works, and peoples woes go away.

Trololol.

Wink i agree

I agree on disabling them in the kernel for good i personally think this phone looks sexier with the lights off (no pun intended =P)
