I just flashed the final beta of CM7 to my triumph, and idk if everybody is having this problem my soft keys are flashing/flickering when i move the phone. It's not physically they are flickering because of the way the light reaches your eyes.

No way to explain it really, when you hold the phone still it's good.

I believe this is because the soft keys brightness is not high enough.
Anybody find a way to fix this,


Thankss in advance.//

It's a 'feature' to reduce the brightness on the softkey LEDs. By default they're turned on full brightness, and it can have light leaks that affect a dark screen on some people's phones. You can just turn it off with an app like 'adjbrightness', 'keyboard backlight control', or in CM settings - display - auto backlight - use custom & edit other levels.

If you could explain a little more of what to change on that screen it would be much appreciated. There are so many values to change that it is a bit overwhelming to me.

In the "Edit other levels", the left column is what the light sensor readings are for a certain light level, the next column is the display backlight that should be used in those situations, the right most column is what brightness the bottom capacitive buttons should be at. Set it to 0 to be off, 255 for max. Try some different values to see what suits you.
