*ROOT REQUIRED*

AdjBrightness adjusts screen brightness for *rooted* android device. It can set the brightness from 2 ~ 255 and lock it so that most of other applications cannot change it. Alternatively, if you don't want to lock the brightness, "auto restore" option can restore it after screen turned on.

It also can turn off the background light of buttons.

Saves the battery and eyes!

Anyway, IF YOU ENCOUNTER ANY PROBLEM, REBOOT!

It can be downloaded from market or just download the attachment.

This would be really nice if you could add an auto feature that has more too it than the stock one to save more battery. Like winmo Lumos


Works very well with my Evo 4g running Damage3.2.3 neterty kernal 7.1a rooted

Maybe also a widget with custom or pre-defined settings for easy access?
I really wish you could make this like lumos MANY MANY users have asked for this already for the evo

Most excellent ! finally i can stop those stupid backlighted buttons when i use my phone in the dark

But i found the brightness range is the same as what i have normally from the phone manual settings (Desire), i hoped it could go lower.

AdjBrightness set the absolute brightness value, not a percent.

You are right. Galaxy's are not supported. It works perfectly on Hero.

This app is great. It turns the backlight completely off on the myTouch 3G which is just what I wanted. It would be great if you could add the ability to make shortcuts on the desktop to a particular setting.

So I could hit a shortcut/widget on the desktop to change the brightness to 10 (backlight off) and then one to turn it back to 20 (backlight on).

Thanks for the app!

I found out about AdjBrightness yesterday in a thread where it was discussed it's possible to lower the brightness more than the standard brightness settings in HTC Sendse. I'm running a rooted HTC Desire with Android 2.2 (Modaco) but I can't see that the brightness get any lower with AdjBrightness than with default settings in Sense. I have given AdjBrightness root access as well. Have I missunderstood what the application actually does, can't the brightness not go below the lowest value you can set in the settings in HTC Sense? Cheers!
