I have to let you know that the problem fixed itself. Flashed a new version of Slim beans and got rid of some unnessecary apps and
works flawless once again. Not sure if the problem is with another app/rom/or something else though...

Something weird happened last night. My screen just suddenly lit up to max brightness while i was in bed in complete darkness. Blinded me for a sec. Then it adjusted itself in a couple of seconds again. Used to happen very often with my old Xperia Z. Only once so far with the G2. Shall monitor and update if anything changes.

Anybody got good profile for Galaxy Note 2?
I just moved from a Galaxy S2 to a Note 2. I bought the paid version. It worked beautifully on the GS2,
but doesn't work well at all on my Note 2.

- The light wouldn't adjust when light changes. sometimes it did and most of the time it did not
- most of time it changed very slowly and I tried to change the up and down delay but it didn't improve much.
- I tried to create new links for the profile I was in, but it never worked well

- I really ran out of things to try. Could anybody who got theirs work on a Note 2 tell me what your settings are?

Thank you very much.

So if I understand this app correctly it is a screen overlay filter. It does not reduce the power to the backlight and save power. I noticed on my home screen a stripe at the bottom of the screen was the much brighter so it can not be the backlight that is reduced

I tried using Tasker to kill Lux when in car mode, but Lux just turns back on a couple seconds later. I tried checking "root", too.

I'm admittedly a noob with Tasker so any tips would be greatly appreciated.

Afaik, it is an overlay. It doesn't seem to be able to cover the navigation bar yet can the status bar.

OP, Is there a possibility that it could go over the whole screen/navbar/status bar. I use Paranoid Android and having the per app colors so, again if possible, would be nice to be able to have the navbar covered also.

I've got the international version, N7100, and lux is working pretty well. It's been a while since I've installed it and set up from scratch as I usually just restore settings using TB, but from memory I have changed very little after the initial setup. I do have it set up to adjust dynamically and to use the auto profile though.

Are you using a custom rom, or the stock samsung one? I'm using a samsung based custom rom (Alliance v4 to be precise). Maybe that makes a difference? Dunno....
