[QUOTE=elusivebyte;8575501]The keyboard backlight and the backlight of the capacitive buttons is controlled by the light sensor on the phone. It my living room at the moment. The system can't decide whether the backlight should be on or off. It's really ****ing annoying. It turns on then off again about three times per sentence so far!
Why can't it just be ON when the screen is on and OFF when the screen is off? I don't even have automatic brightness on. The tiny amount of power wasted when your in bright light would be worth it.
I've also seen the keyboard backlight stay off at times when it was quite dim where I was; times when I really could have used it!
I don't understand how this sort of crappy behavior gets through HTC quality assurance testing. Don't they use the phones before just shipping them out?
EDIT: Oh, hey! Problem solved. I put a small piece of black electrical tape over the god damn light sensor. >.
Lol @ tape. But I cant really say anything about the hk light because I dont use it alot but, there was an app that was for rooted g1 that could controll the backlight of the keyboard. Maybe when the g2 is rooted we will have some better settings or an on off controller
if im wrong tell me. I'd ratter be correct then live life being mislead.
